Lost In Translation

The Index Translationum is a list of books translated in the world, an international bibliography of translations. The database contains cumulative bibliographical information on books translated and published in about one hundred of the UNESCO Member States since 1979 and totalling more than 1.600,000 entries in all disciplines . The subjucts cover literature, social and human sciences, natural and exact sciences, art, history and so forth. Index Translationum can produce statistics to obtain the number of translations published around the world. The totals obtained can apply to all translations of the Index (from 1979 to 2002, for all languages and world regions). The totals can also be obtained for a restricted set of translations by using a filter. In addition, the totals can be detailed for u quantitative differences and can be viewed according to different parameters such as country, language, and across time intervals.
