Here you will find the first version of the English Russian Glossary of terms and expressions pertaining to the Games organization and staging. This document has been prepared by the Organizing Committee ‘Sochi 2014’ Language Services Department. It includes entries chosen in the course of documents translation for the Organizing Committee in 2010 – 2012. The Glossary is organized alphabetically and thematically. Some sections (e.g., construction, medicine, ecology, technology, finance and legal) will be useful to a wide range of specialists, working in various industries. Other sections (such as Games Management, Olympic Movement, International Sport Federations and Games Venues) are more specific and will be used mostly by the Games translators and interpreters.
Glossary sections for Olympic and Paralympic winter sports deserve special attention. This is the first attempt of the modern winter sports vocabulary synthesizing. The Glossary also contains definitions of sport terms in the Russian and English languages, which may facilitate the job-specific training of interpreters assigned to work at sport competitions. National Sport Federations have also made their contribution to the Glossary development.
In addition we offer you the French-Russian collections of the winter sports terminology.
