English-Russian hockey glossary

Recently worked on a Russian hockey translation. For this project I prepared a Russian hockey glossary based on the Wikipedia article and Sochi-2014 terminology glossary. The file contains about 250 words and phrases that are widely used by players, coaches and fans.  I used this glossary in many translation and interpreting assignments, so I can say for sure that all terms included are accurate and correct.

From now on, the glossary in PDF format is available for purchase for a small fee of $2.99. Please click the button below to complete the purchase – the checkout will be securely processed by Paypal.
