Found something in Google Feb 16, 2007

Hi Henry,

I found something in Google that might be useful even if it is only a few words. It's a two page Electrical Home Inspection Reporting Language translated from English to Spanish. By word it might be useful, I took a quick look at the translated sentences and they were not really that good, but understandable if corrected a little bit in its grammar. Looks like it's been translated by someone that does not know that much Spanish. Anyway, I hope it helps!

Regards,
Ana María

Thanks Ana Feb 16, 2007

Thanks Ana,

That seems like it should be able to help me with a few of the terms. But any other specific dictionnaries or glossaries would still be much appreciated!

thanks!

U R Welcome Henry Feb 16, 2007

Now I found the plumbing part of the same link, and I want to send you one of my glossaries; it is related to General Industry Terms. Do you think it will do?

I also have the Simon & Schuster's English/Spanish and Spanish/English International Dictionary, so you can send me and E-mail with several terms and I can look for the words and send them back to you.

The only thing is that I don't know how to attach files here...

Best regards,
Ana María

Glossary Feb 17, 2007

Henry,

I received your E-mail and I am answering it right now. I am enclosing the glossary I offered before.

Of course I do not mind you contacting me to ask for help, I offered it in the first place! So do not worry, okey? Happy to help.

Ana María

GlossPost Feb 17, 2007

Hi Henry,

In the drop-down menus under "Community", pick out GlossPost.

It's something of a complicated interface, because you have to choose either "Tech/Engineering" as a broad category, OR pick out individual BSO categories OR input keywords that you think will be of help. (Note that using too many filters may bring 0 results, and with more 8,000 links on file, there's bound to be something there). Good luck!
