Following book shops have been checked in octobre 2012 for books on language as for instance on Russian and foreign language courses, Russian as a foreigner, dictionaries, everything between phonetics and text linguistics, translation theory etc. In this list I put additional details for translation scholars.

  1. Biblio-Globus (rating: 5/5)
    Best shop for language, both in quality and quantity. Even better: antiquarian books of relevant Soviet classics among new books. The bookseller obviously knows the subject. Find it on the second floor, hall/зал 14.
    For translation studies refer to English section/секция 02, shelf/шкаф 14, case/полка 03 to 08 and furthermore one shelf case in the German section
  2. Dom knigi, main branch (rating: 4/5)
    Good selection on language. Go to the second floor. Translation studies have an own shelf close to the German section.
  3. Book shops (not public) at the Moscow State University, Faculty of Philology, ground floor (rating 3/5)

Other book shops that were checked are not generally bad and might be good for books on other fields, see comments:

Check also the exhaustive Rudimimo State Library of Foreign Literature which has amongst others a linguistic department on the 2nd floor. Membership is free of charge.
