The spirit of cooperation that now exists between the Russian scientific community and its English-speaking colleagues has opened a floodgate of Russian language technical and scientific documents. To meet the demand for an authoritative and up-to-date reference, the classic Callaham's Russian-English Dictionary of Science and Technology has now been published in a new edition that encompasses the latest additions to the technical vocabulary. The product of decades of painstaking research by distinguished Russian language translators, this essential reference book upholds the high standard of thoroughness and accuracy that scientific and technical translators require.

Technical specialists all over the English-speaking world—translators and interpreters, scientists, and engineers—will welcome the arrival of the Fourth Edition of Callaham's Russian-English Dictionary of Science and Technology.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
First published in 1947, and subsequently in 1962 and 1975, this work is substantially expanded for the 1996 edition, containing 30 percent more material than the third edition. It translates 120,000 scientific and technical Russian terms and 5,000 essential non-technical words, included to make reading scientific Russian easier for the non-expert. Coverage extends to medicine, physiology, chemistry, psychology, botany, ornithology, ecology, computer science, nuclear power, robotics, and more. Included are explanations and meanings for prefixes, and information showing how they combine with roots to make new words; translation of verbs in a variety of contexts; and a reference table displaying some 400 common Russian technical word endings that change the meaning of Russian words.
