Soviet American Glossary.
General Services Administration, Washington, DC.
This is a glossary of Russian and English terms related to building design and construction. It is intended for use by interpreters and specialists dealing with American and Soviet literature on buildings. The glossary consists of two parts: the Soviet-American section, which presents the Soviet terms written in Russian and the American equivalent or an Americanized equivalent, and the definition; and an American-Soviet section, which has the American term written in English with the best Russian equivalent, and the definition. The glossary also contains appendices with lists of standard abbreviations for both American and Soviet literature and an English/Metric conversion table. The Soviet-American portion contains a special section which cross references all the literal translations and American equivalents. (Author/AMH)
