Russian-English Glossary of International Maritime Law Terms (and Selected Terms in Related Disciplines.)
Naval Intelligence Support Center, Washington, DC.
This glossary contains over 750 terms encountered in international maritime law texts. It includes terms of the art, fairly common abbreviations, geographic names, and prepositional phrases routinely encountered in international treaties, conventions, and agreements. The prepositional phrases are recorded exactly as they appear in formal texts. The bulk of the terms were obtained through careful comparison of parallel English and Russian texts of 4 major international Conventions ratified at Geneva in 1958: the Convention on the High Seas, the Convention on the Territorial Sea and the Contiguous Zone, the Convention on the Continental Shelf, and the Convention on Fishing and Conservation of the Living Resources of the High Seas. The remainder of the terms were culled from texts of related disciplines such as marine navigation, seamanship, shipboard terminology, fisheries, etc., received for translation in the Naval Intelligence Support Center Translation Services. Entries are arranged in Russian in alphabetical order, followed by the English equivalent. (Author/AM)
