5.215.2 RDA definition and scope

5.215.2.1 A place of publication in another language or script.

5.215.31 Publication place names in more than one language or script

5.215.31.1 Take parallel places of publication from the same source as the Place of publication. Make a Note on publication statement on parallel places of publication found elsewhere if considered important (see 5.24.33.1).

5.215.31.2 For transposed elements, always make a Note on publication statement to indicate the original position on the source (see 5.24.32.7).

5.215.31.3 If the Place of publication appears in more than one language or script, transcribe the place in the language or script of the Title proper as a Place of publication. If this criterion does not apply, transcribe the Place of publication that appears first.

5.215.31.4 Transcribe remaining places of publication appearing on the same source as the Place of publication as Parallel places of publication. If a parallel place of publication is from a different source than the Place of publication, make a Note on publication statement if considered important (see 5.24.33.1).

5.215.31.5 Optionally, if the Parallel places of publication are considered too numerous to list exhaustively and some may be omitted without significant loss of identification, all after the third may be omitted. Supply in square brackets a phrase in the language and script of the cataloging agency to convey the nature of the omitted information. Include the number of omitted Parallel places of publication in the supplied phrase. Do not use the mark of omission.
