At LC, and this is very important for records of works in non-Roman scripts, if there is a parallel title (typically in English or another Latin script langauge) anywhere in the item being cataloged, it ends up both as a parallel title (245, following an "="), and usually as a 246 , often with a $i indicating where the parallel title came from, such as the verso t.p., added title page, the collophon, or whereever.  In the past the 246 would have sufficient if the Roman script title was not on the title page.
