5.265.1 Element information
5.265.2 RDA definition and scope
5.265.2.1 A place of distribution in another language or script.
5.265.31 Distribution place names in more than one language or script
5.265.31.1 Take parallel places of distribution from the same source as the Place of distribution. Make a Note on distribution statement on parallel places of distribution found elsewhere if considered important (see 5.285.33.1).
5.265.31.3 If the Place of distribution appears in more than one language or script, transcribe the place in the language or script of the Title proper as a Place of distribution. If this criterion does not apply, transcribe the Place of distribution that appears first.
5.265.31.4 Transcribe any remaining Place of distribution as parallel places of distribution. If a parallel place of distribution is from a different source than the Place of distribution, make a Note on distribution statement if considered important for identification (see Note on distribution statement, 5.285.33.1).
5.265.31.5 Optionally, if the parallel places of distribution are too numerous to list exhaustively and some may be omitted without significant loss of identification then all parallel places of distribution after the third may be omitted. In such cases, after the third parallel place of distribution, supply in square brackets a phrase in the language and script of the cataloging agency to convey the extent of the omission. Include the number of omitted places (if more than one) in the supplied phrase. Do not use a mark of omission.
