The Library of Congress publishes monthly indexes
of "Russian Accessions," "East European Accessions,"
and "Southern Asia Accessions." These contain translated
tables of contents.
Leaders in the cover-to-cover translation field
seem to be Consultants Bureau, Inc., and Pergammon
Institute; both have made special arrangements with
Russia to do such translating on a priority basis.
The former company also sponsors the translation of
several journals on its own initiative (bit at higher
prices than for those which are underwritten). [It
also recently added translated tables of contents of
all known Russian journals translated into English
available on a subscription bas is.-Ed. Note.]
Associated Technical Services, Inc., has been a leader
in publishing lists of pertinent current Russian
literature for which translations have been prepared.
These and other translation services do extensive
translating of specific documents on order.
Chemical Abstracts and Biological Abstracts cover
the Russian literature excellently in their fields;
other secondary journals strive similarly. A large
number of societies are studying extensive translating
and/or abstracting programs.
Government agencies are doing extensive Russiandocument
abstracting and translating for their own
use and for the use of other Government agencies. One
agency, for example, reportedly abstracts over 135
Russian technical journals and proceedings which are
flown to this country. Perhaps 20% of the articles,
etc., are then translated completely.
This summary is indicative rather than complete.
There is still considerable confusion, duplication,
and uncovered areas of importance. The OTS program
has not yet been granted funds by Congress. There is
a shortage of qualified Russian technical translators.
Little book translating has been done, although
Russian books are said to contain more original data
than their Ehlglisll-language counterparts. Considerable
expenditures will be required, of both public and

This excellent guide for oral presentation of technical
information also contains much valuable advice for the
the writing of technical reports. For instance,
it is one of the few books that discusses the design of
tables and graphs for reporting typical scientific and
The book is written in the less formal style that
the author recommends for oral presentations; in some
snots it becomes almost chatty with apt annecdotes.
No doubt the author's many years of active participation
in meetings of the American Chemical Society provi(led
much of the sage advice he offers on such varied
tonics as Barriers and Bridges [to communications],
V'ork Habits and Methods, Organization, Composition for
Oral Delivery, Formally Prepared Talks, Informal and
