To find translations in the UR Library Catalog, use the title of your book and the word "translated" in a key word search. This is especially helpful when the original title is a proper name, which does not change when the book is translated; for example, "Madame Bovary translated." It also works when you know only the orginal title and aren''t sure what the English title might be: for example, "Voina i mir translated."
You can also find bibliographies of translations of national literatures with the search" translations bibliography". If you add the name of the language of interest, you can narrow the search to just that one.
For books on the grammar of any language, do a Subject Heading Search for X language--grammar, e.g., Arabic language--Grammar. You can find books in a particular language by using the Advanced Search in the UR Library catalog and using the Language limit box. Results are best if you use fairly general terms in the search box. If you want to browse the shelves for material about a specific language, these are the relevant call number ranges:
Greek Language PA1-PA179
Latin Language PA2001-2915
Italian Language PC1001-PC1977
French Language PC2001-PC3761
Portuguese Language PC5001-PC5498
German Language PF3001-PF5999
Russian Language PG2001-PG2826
