Russian translation: См. разд. 5, стр. 40

English term or phrase: on page nnn
In technical manuals, we do cross references to headings. For example:

See "heading 2" on page 31.

Or

See "heading 2" on page 266.

Is the word "page" translated differently for different numbers? (Or otherwise?)

Thanks

Russian translation:См. разд. 5, стр. 40
Explanation:
In a technical manual the best way to put references to pages, headings, etc. is to do abbreviate them and place them in brackets at the end of the corresponding phrase or sentence as follows (см. разд. 5, стр. 40)(sm. razd. 5, str. 40). In this case you will avoid the problem of grammatical correlation + it sounds more tech. However, I will strongly advise you to have your final version checked by your Russian translator or whoever you trust to know Russian at the extent required to ensure the desired quality of your manual is maintained. Hope, this helps, Gala

Explanation:
As it is well put in the previous message the word “page” can be translated differently depending on whether the reference is made to one certain page or to several pages.
As for the “otherwise”, well, cardinal numbers (e.g. page 1) do not change. However, when we deal with ordinal numbers (1st page, 2nd page), endings in both numerals and nouns will be different and change according to case and number (singular or plural): pervaya stranitsa (Nominative sg.), pervoy stranitsy (Genetive sg.), pervykh stranits (Genetive pl.), etc.
Hope it is not too much of a jumble.
