LC practice: One of the five conditions in rule 21.30K1 for making an added entry for the translator of a work entered under a personal name heading is that "the translation is important in its own right." The Library of Congress applies this condition as follows: Make an added entry under the heading for the translator of a work of belles lettres when the name of the translator appears on the chief source of information of the item being cataloged. (Note: This policy is effective January 1994.)
