In case you don't know these ones yet. They are comprehensive, but I would not swear by any of them.

There's a termbase edited by SAP Aug 29, 2008

Look for SapTerm in SAP web site.

I purchased it on-line a few months ago and received it on CD in Spain (from Germany) in a couple of days.

Some people think it could be better, but I found it useful.

Neat trick Aug 29, 2008

If you can't find a term in one of the glossaries Wolfgang provided, there's a neat trick that works sometimes. Let's say you need the English translation of Anlagenbuchhaltung.
In Google, enter Anlagenbuchhaltung
This will take you to
Now change the de after helpdata to en and you will go to where you will find the SAP translation: Asset Accounting

Thanks for the ideas! Aug 29, 2008

Thanks for your ideas everybody!
I am finally getting the hang of using which could be a little more user friendly, but hey, it's free.
Changing the de in an URL to en is a trick that has saved me quite a few times in the past. I'll try it on the SAP help site - that's a great idea. Thanks Kim!

Is it just me or is SAP enough to drive a person slightly mad?

I'm making progress, though. Slowly but surely. And learning a bit to boot.

Thanks and good luck with your projects!
