Russian term or phrase:военный цифровальщик
I need the term in English, but information about what this person does would be equally helpful.
The context is about a военный цифровальщик who defected to the United States during the 1950's.
Thank you for the spelling correction - I am listening to audio.
I have chased down the name of the person in question - Igor Guzenko. Canadian newspaper sources called him a cypher clerk or a code clerk. I suppose either one will do.
I will wait to close the question.
