Hi folks

I sometimes translate a little Norwegian into English ... but I need some better dictionaries!

What can you recommend? Insurance for the man in the street is one of my recurring themes, and I get by with the excellent Danish Lyng-Svensson and check-up e-mails to my client, or your kindness on KudoZ!

I have Kirkeby's Stor Ordbok, Janet Aagenæs and a c ouple of highly technical multilingual glossaries from Rådet for Teknisk Terminologi that I picked up in a sale. But that's it as far as Norwegian goes.

Is there a good business dictionary with an English-Norwegian section as well, that I can double-check in?

Thanks for any suggestions and comments!

Aagen√¶s sin nye Engelsk √łkonomisk bl√• ordbok (Kunnskapsforlaget) g√•r begge veier. Den er nyttig. Korsvold/Snellingen: N-E / E-N √łkonomisk ordbok (Cappelen akademisk forlag) er mindre, men komplementerer Aagen√¶s.
Engelsk stor ordbok fra Kunnskapsforlaget er den nyeste store, generelle ordboken som går begge veier. Også nyttig, selv om det fortsatt er Svenkeruds Cappelens store engelsk-norsk ordbok som regjerer til norsk.

Hilsen Eivind

"Norsk-engelsk Ordbok for handel og n√¶ringsliv", Kirkeby (Gr√łndahl Dreyer) is good to have, though perhaps somewhat dated in some areas now (think the last edition dates back to 1992 unless I'm mistaken). I recently purchased "Det store norske √łkonomileksikon", N√łrgaard, Borud, Engevik (Cappelen), som gir greie forklaringer p√• termer innenfor ledelse, √łkonomi, finans, markedsf√łring og jus.

Thanks - I'm off to the academic bookshop! Nov 8, 2004

Thanks for the good suggestions -
I'll have a look at them and maybe put them on my Christmas wish list. Others I'll have to buy myself to be sure to get them!
