Translation of ICT terminology into Russian language

Project No 9RER09021
Title Translation of ICT terminology into Russian language
Short Title ICT RUS Terminology ?
Description WTDC-06, through adoption of Resolution 17 (Rev.Doha, 2006), called upon BDT to implement regionally approved initiatives at the national, regional, interregional and global levels. One of the five Regional Initiatives that was proposed for the CIS countries has an expected output of “creation of a unified information and educational base in all ITU official languages” For the Russian language this can be achieved by Translation and Russification of ICT Terminology” project. Although there are various dictionaries, glossaries and electronic databases that already exist, additional efforts are needed to harmonize and align the ICT terminology in the Russian language. Three ITU Sectors produce Recommendations, handbooks, guidelines which were and are translated into Russian by companies external to the ITU. Terminology used by these companies sometimes differs to a great extent and therefore there is some confusion or misunderstanding among specialists using such ITU products. Due to the fact that the Russian language is widely used in the CIS countries and in some other countries, it is important to unify, align, harmonize and, if necessary, translate the terminology from the Recommendations and publications from ITU-T, ITU-R, ITU-D that have been produced over the past five years, thus, creating an integrated database that is updated and improved, and which will be used to compile an English-Russian dictionary as an online service, CD and in printed version.
