Dewey Translation Wiki

The translation of the DDC takes a special part in the cooperation of EDUG members. Each country using the DDC and making translations of the DDC has a different history of use and translation: different editions, full or abridged editions, adapted versions, different workflows, etc. Therefore, we speak of DDC language versions in the context of the classification system's translation.


One tool for Dewey translators to collaborate is the Dewey Translation Wiki . The core of the wiki space is the DDC Translation Guidelines (login required), a collection of information and recommendations covering the various aspects of Dewey translation. The login button to the guidelines can be found in the blue-shaped panel on the right side of the main page. If you are interestedin the resource, please contact Tina Mengel.

Besides the translation guidelines, the wiki also provides freely accessible content that is gradually being expanded.
