Hi,

I need to buy a copy of Ernst and was wondering if you could recommend a website (presumably German) where I can buy it? I'm in the UK if that's of any relevance.

Thanks,

Joanne

Kater it is! Mar 11, 2004

I agree with Sandhya. I've also had success with Kater. Good luck!

P.S. If you happen to be passing through Munich at all, you can usually get it (without placing an order in advance) at the big Hugendubel bookstore in the main shopping street that extends down from the main train station. I forget the metro stop... Karlstor? Anyway, near Stachus.

Definitely Kater-Verlag Mar 11, 2004

As Sandhyia mentioned, try Kater-Verlag. I've been extremely pleased with their selection and their prompt and courteous service. I find their prices quite competitive (I am comparing their prices to a company here in the US that also specializes in foreign language dictionaries, and I have yet to find a dictionary where Kater-Verlag doesn't have the better price.) And if you are looking for something they don't carry, Mr. Kotzur will do his best to get it for you.

I placed another order with them just a little over 2 weeks ago; the package is already here. Just haven't had a chance yet to install all my new toys...

Look at Amazon Mar 12, 2004

I can't think why anyone would feel the need to buy Ernst (though my experience is only with the FrenchEnglish edition), but have a look at Amazon.co.uk, which has some second-hand ones as well as new.

Try specialising in German to English technical translations WITHOUT IT for a while and you too will feel the need to buy Ernst!

Kater or amazon.de Mar 17, 2004

I agree that Kater is great. I once bought a load of dictionaries from them and they threw in a small freebie. Good service! Plus they'll put you on their mailing list to receive their catalog.

amazon.de is also good, but I find searching for dictionaries on any amazon site a bit difficult because they often don't have enough info about the language direction and edition.

I have also successfully ordered from ibd Ltd., but that is in NY, so not of as much use to you.

PS Can you give us a review of the new Ernst when you get it? I am pondering that purchase, as I don't do much technical (but it comes up sometimes).
