Russian term or phrase: other/others as "прочие"
Застряла на простом месте - не могу сообразить, other или others должно стоять в эквиваленте к "прочие", в списках, диаграммах и т.д. Например, доли разных компаний на рынке. Комп.1 - XX%, Комп. 2 - XX%, Комп. 3.... Прочие (то есть все остальные)- XX%. Cклоняюсь к Other, но вдруг загрызли сомнения. Буду благодарна, если развеете.))

I think, for companies, as in your case, others will do as well.
