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 Co-Publishers 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 Co-Publishers and some entity (such as a publishing house, a national library or library organizations) that is native to the translation language.
