WHAT DOES MICROFICHE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

microfiche

Microform

Microforms are any forms, either films or paper, containing microreproductions of documents for transmission, storage, reading, and printing. Microform images are commonly reduced to about one twenty-fifth of the original document size. For special purposes, greater optical reductions may be used. All microform images may be provided as positives or negatives, more often the latter. Three formats are common: microfilm, aperture cards and microfiche. Microcards, a format no longer produced, were similar to microfiche, but printed on cardboard rather than photographic film.
