Translated Subtitle


An alternative version of a book subtitle (<subtitle>). The content of this element is a subtitle that has been translated into a language other than that of the original book subtitle.


This element is used within article metadata. Within bibliographic references (<citation>), the subtitle is not tagged as a separate element and any subtitle text should be added to the content of the title.

There are several elements concerned with the title of a book or any of its components (such as a chapter), all contained within the wrapper element <book-title-group> in the book metadata or the <title-group> in the metadata for a book component (<book-part-meta>). The <book-title> is the full title of the book in the original language of the document. The <title> is the full title of book component such as a chapter. The <subtitle> is a subordinate or auxiliary title that adds information to the full title or modifies the full title. The <alt-title> is another version of the full title, usually created so that the title can be processed in a special way, for example, a short version of the title for use in a Table of Contents, an ASCII title, or a version of the title to be used in the right-running-head. The <trans-title> is a version of the title translated into a language other than the original language of publication; the <trans-subtitle> is a version of the subtitle translated into a language other than the original.
