In some classification schedules, translations are designated with the caption By language, A-Z, and date. In these cases, cutter for the specific language by using .E5 for English, .F7 for French, .G4 for German, etc. Do not apply the Translation Table; cutter for the language itself. Normally cutter for the first letter and give a digit for the second letter, e.g., .E5 for English. For special cases where the second letters are identical, cutter for the first letter, give a digit for the second letter, and expand for the third letter.
