The Code in other languages
The English and French versions of the Code hold equal authority. There are a few points where linguistic differences cause a problem in determining the authoritative meaning of these two versions. These points are under active discussion for the next edition of the Code: http://iczn.ansp.org/.
The Code has also been translated into Spanish, German, Russian, Japanese, Chinese – traditional and simplified, Czech, Ukranian, Catalan and Greek (introduction only). These are variously available as PDF through the ICZN or sponsoring society websites, or as hardcopy for purchase.
