ABSTRACT The study outlines one of the major problems of library personnel i.e. training of translators in scientific and technical translation. Various training courses in India e.g., Certificate, Diploma, Advanced Diploma, M.A. etc. for Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian, Spanish, and Serbo-Croatian Languages have been surveyed. The Indian Universities/Institutions conducting these courses have been listed along with the syllabi of the foreign languages taught in some of the Indian Universities. The scope of this paper has been limited to the translation of scientific and technical literature from foreign languages into English. The need for running a scientific translation course after the Advanced Diploma Course in each language has been emphasized.
