NRC Counter Piracy Glossary published


A new NRC Glossary on Counter Piracy has been published, and is now available to download from the NRC Website here. The Russian-English/English-Russian glossary was created to facilitate NRC cooperation in counter piracy and contains over 830 terms relevant to the field.
The counter piracy glossary is the latest addition to the NRC glossaries series, which in 2011 saw the NRC Consolidated Glossary of Cooperation published covering areas including counter terrorism, defence reform, and military to military cooperation. In 2012 two further glossaries were published: on Helicopter maintenance and Missile defence
NRC glossaries are the result of cooperation between linguists in the NRC Expert Group on Terminology. In 2013, they will continue their work and develop new glossaries on Ammunition Demilitarization, and Counter Narcotics.  The development of glossaries provides a terminology baseline in the NRC, facilitating better mutual understanding on key areas of practical cooperation.
