Front & Brown Streets Riverside, New Jersey 08370 Telephone 609 . 461-6500 January 6, 1983 Mr. William Casey Director of Central Intellegence Central Intellegence Agency Washington, DC 20505 Dear Mr. Casey, Macmillan Publishing Co. Inc. has been producing text books for education for over 75 years. Cassell Macmillan, a division of Macmillan Publishing Co. Inc, publishes bilingual dictionaries primarily for both national and international education. Today, we are researching the feasibility of revising and expanding our bilingual dictionary product line. As you are probably aware, this is a massive undertaking both in terms of manpower and costs even if we can automate a portion of the process. To neglect the necessary revisions and possibly disband the development of new bilingual dictionaries because of economic reasons seems an injustice to our educational community as well as further inhibiting international relations by expanding the language (communications) gap. We understand that the Central Intelligence Agency has already developed computer software to automate the translation process. We would like to know if the computer programs, word files, and translations are unclassified information; thus, making this material candidate for public distribution? If they are unclassified, what are the procedures for obtaining the aforementioned material in the most expeditious manner as we would like to make use of it? We trust that you will treat our plea for assistance in this matter with the understanding that it is to our mutual benefit for Macmillan to continue and expand its line of bilingual dictionaries.
