Use as many non-Latin scripts as you need anywhere in a record, including within the same field.
For creating bibliographic records and/or constant data with non-Latin scripts using workforms (Cataloging > Create > Single Record > [format] or Constant Data), you can set an option to display the workforms with paired fields.
- Navigate to Tools > Options or press <Alt><T><O>.
- Click the International tab.
- Select the Include paired fields in workforms for multi-script data check box. By default, the check box is not selected. Workforms contain single fields.
- The workform opens with paired fields 1XX, 245, 246, 250, 260, 300, 4XX, 5XX, 6XX, 8XX for non-Latin script entry (X = any valid tag number).
- Each pair has identical tags.
- The first of a paired field is for non-Latin script data.
- When finished, perform one of the following actions:
- Click Close or press <Enter> to apply the settings and close the Options window.
- Click Apply to apply the settings without closing the window.
Setting the option for paired fields is not required
You can enter non-Latin script data only or romanized (Latin-script equivalent) data only. You can also create your own paired fields and enter both:
- In a record, add a field and enter the same tag as the corresponding existing field.
- Enter the non-Latin script data in the first field of the pair.
- (Optional) Enter the romanized data in the second field.
- Click Edit > Linking Fields > Link Field or press <Alt><E><K><L> to link the fields.
Let the client link them automatically when you validate, reformat, save, or take a final OCLC action on the record.
Caution: If Latin script and non-Latin script parallel fields are not linked, display of records downloaded to your local system may be affected. You can set an option to get a warning before the client exports records with parallel unlinked non-Latin script fields in Tools > Options > Export.
When you use Edit > Derive > New WorldCat Record or New Constant Data to create records from existing records that have linked fields for non-Latin scripts, the client transfers the linked fields as pairs for each field selected in Tools > Options > Derive Record.
Note: Although the 066 field cannot be transferred, the client adds the field automatically to indicate the presence and type of non-Latin script when you validate, reformat, save, or take a final OCLC action on the record.
