Abstract

English and domestic scientific literature was analyzed; face and head anthropometric measurements were compared in the English and Ukrainian language. It was noticed that in different surveys related to English scientific articles and reports investigators using different anthropometric terms for the same parameters. It enormously complicates work on the foreign scientific data and their perception. To eliminate these inconsistencies and the confusion they create during translation a unified manual was developed. It includes standardized traditional anthropometric terms together with their equivalents in the English language applying by different countries investigators and also their Ukrainian translation.
