RDA in Translation
One of the stated goals of RDA: Resource Description and Access is to be standard that is "... able to be used in other language communities". To this end the RDA Copyright Holders have pursued translation agreements with outside organizations in order to provide high quality translations of RDA in a range of non-English languages. Translations projects begin with an agreement between the Copyright Holders and some entity (such as a publishing house, a national library or library organizations) that is native to the translation language. Translations of RDA typically result in the production of a print publication, and may also be appear online in RDA Toolkit. For a complete description of the translations options and requirements please review the Policy for New Translations of RDA.
