These claims are characterized by an abundance of difficult to grasp multicomponent terminological combinations and by a specific syntactic structure of unusually long sentences containing up to several hundred words. The system’s algorithm performed the segmentation of the English text, and the identification and structural analysis of multicomponent word groups necessary to synthesize the corresponding Russian equivalents.

All mentioned above abstracted materials as well as the texts of my publications are publicly  available to all users free of charge.

Over the past  existence of the  site (since 2010) it acquired a rather  wide popularity. Each month it is visited by hundreds of users from different regions of the country and  Russian-speaking experts of the foreign states. I hope that the implementation of improvement of the site in the New Year will be perceived positively by my colleagues.
