I was told about a CD containing a SAP glossary in some 4-5 languages and is marketed directly by SAP. This topic may already have been posted earlier but I havent found it here hence the question once again!

I would want to know from our colleagues whether this CD marketed by SAP is worth buying. I wonder if it is comprehensive enough, particiularly in view of the fact that it is in 4-5 languages. It costs some 110 EUR I am told. Opinions??

Source for SAP glossary Nov 3, 2004

The following is taken directly from a letter I received from SAP:

The "SAPterm - SAP Terminology Database" CD is a standalone product running on Microsoft Windows platforms and includes the public version of SAP's multilingual terminology database with a read-only viewer program. The SAPterm CD offers 650,000 main entries in 20 languages, with abbreviations and valid and invalid synonyms where relevant, in addition to 16,000 definitions of key SAP terms in German and English. It is intended primarily as a reference work for customers, partners, and other externals working with SAP products.

Languages represented on the SAPterm CD: Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Slovakian, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish.

The latest version of the SAPterm CD can be ordered using the material number 50055535 via the online SAP Shop on www.sap.com/shop and costs EUR 100.00 per piece. Contact the SAP Shop if you have any questions about ordering and payment.

just had a look Nov 3, 2004

I am thankful for this info but none of the colleagues have really told me if they found it useful and that is really what I want to know. I work with German and English, which is why that combination is of interest to me.
Moreover the version is of the year 2002 and ther seems to be no update thereof. the price too is higher now 116 EUR.

... you have to translate SAP stuff because SAP terminology often differs completely from wisely established general terminology in the fields covered by SAP, probably because the personnel recruiting staff of SAP consists or consisted of *.

SAP Terminology Nov 25, 2004

I used to work in-house at SAP and part of my job was to add to the German -> English terminology in SAPTerm.

If you are doing any work whatsoever related to SAP, I would recommend getting this. If the work is for SAP directly, you should be able to get a free copy. SAP terminology quite often exists in a world of its own. Quite often, I'd look up a perfectly normal word, only to find that SAP had its own unique translation that needed to be used (but, annoyingly, none spring to mind at the moment!). After a while, translating into SAP-speak became second nature.

However, this also means that SAPTerm might not be that useful if you are not translating SAP material. In extreme cases, it might mean that you use an approved SAP term that another client views as wrong.

BTW, if you are translating for SAP, you really need to get your hands on the in-house style guide as well (full of many more SAP quirks that need to be followed in any translation).
