OCLC Adds Vietnamese Version of Dewey Decimal System


Anonymous Patron writes "Business First of Columbus: The Online Computer Library Center said it has published the first complete translation of the Dewey Decimal Classification and Relative Index into Vietnamese.

The system, which has been translated into more than 30 languages, is an organizational tool for library collections that provides sorting and browsing tools for easier access to resources, Dublin-based OCLC said. It is used in more than 135 countries."


That's a useless exercise since Dewey is biased towards the English language, so DDC cannot be directly translated as a result of language differences.
