The Index Translationum is a list of books translated in the world, i.e. an international bibliography of translations. The data base contains cumulative bibliographical information on books translated and published in about one hundred of the UNESCO Member States since 1979 and totalling more than one 1,300.000 entries in all disciplines : literature, social and human sciences, natural and exact sciences, art, history and so forth. It is planned to update the work every quarter.
By publishing this list, to serve as a reference work, UNESCO provides the general public with an irreplaceable tool for making bibiographical inventories of translations on worldwide scale.
