Translations

(currently online: 57 languages)

The UDC Summary database contains over 2,600 UDC classes with the following fields that contain text: caption, including notes, scope note, application note, examples. The classification is, however, suitable for use as soon as the complete set of captions (i.e. class description) is translated.

UDC Summary is a carefully chosen set of classes that represent an up to date version of UDC. It used by libraries and library schools world-wide for training and indexing. We invite colleagues interested in translating the UDC Summary into their national languages to contact udcs [AT] udcc.org.

Online translator

For those who would like to assist in the translation of the UDC Summary we can provide a spreadsheet with a list of classes and captions in English or a combination of languages in parallel. If you have data available in electronic format we can align a text extract with the UDC Summary and prepare a spreadsheet for further work. There is also an online UDC Summary translator and in coordination with editors for particular languages we provide a login for those who wish to collaborate in translating a specific language. Please contact udcs [AT] udcc.org.
