Could anyone confirm for me whether there are any plans to bring out a new edition of Ernst\'s Wörterbuch der industriellen Technik (German-English)? The current edition is from 1989 and I heard from one bookseller in Munich that there may be a new one towards the end of 2002.



Thanks in advance,



Colin

I suspect you are talking about the paper/book version though.



As a CD I use it every day and it appeared in 2000



Best regards



Mats

Thanks in advance,

Does the CD contain updated content? May 13, 2002

Thanks for the inforation Mats. You wouldn\'t know by any chance whether the CD is based on the 1989 German-English part or whether it has been entirely updated, would you?

Hi Colin,



I usually purchase my dictionaries from kater-verlag.de and was told quite some time ago that they are indeed going to bring out a revised addition of German-English.

No, the CD contains only the new En-Ge edition, but the old (89) Ge-En.

I\'m waiting, too, but heard recently (can\'t remember where) that we shouldn\'t \"hold our breath!\" (

Ernst deu-eng-deu. Klare Antwort unten: May 13, 2002

Ich habe jetzt mit Frau Roswitha Kontschny bei Brandstetter/Bruckner Verlag in Wiesbaden gesprochen +49-611-991200 und folgendes zu wissen bekommen über Ernst 2000:

Deutsch-Englisch ist aus 1989

Englisch-Deutsch ist aus 2000

(Ich dachte beide waren aus demselben Jahr)

Deu-eng wird in 2004 erscheinen, zuerst als Buch, dann als CD.

Verzeihen Sie mein Englisch!

I can\'t add to Mats\' answer regarding Ernst, does anyone have any experience with this one?



Kucera



Wörterbuch der exakten Naturwissenschaften und der Technik



2002. Band II. 2. Auflage 220.000 Stichworte und damit im Umfang und im Format fast verdoppelt. Manch ein Übersetzer gründete auf dieses Werk seine Selbständigkeit. Es enthält schlicht alles, was zu den Großthemenbereichen Technik und angewandte Wissenschaften bemerkenswert ist. Unübersehbar die Aufzählung der Quellen. Mit 10 Jahren ausschließlicher Arbeit an dem Werk hat sich der Lexikologe Antonin Kucera ein Denkmal gesetzt. Wesentlich ist die Zuordnung der Fachbegriffe zu Fachbereichen, die Berücksichtigung von englischen, amerikanischen und deutschen Normen und deren Benennung und die präzise Ausarbeitung der Verweise und der Synonyme. Zahlreiche Verweise auf Definitionen in den Orginalquellen u.a. dem Chambers Dictionary of Science and Technology runden den guten Eindruck ab. Deutsch / Englisch. Gebunden

Kucera May 13, 2002

Vol. 1 of Kucera, Compact Dictionary of Exact Science and Technology (English-German), has been on the market since 1989. IMHO, it\'s an excellent reference and complements Ernst very nicely. Many\'s the time where I found a term in Kucera that wasn\'t listed in Ernst.



Recently, I\'ve been relying more heavily on Ernst simply because I have the Ernst CD on my system (which means I don\'t have to get up and fetch a book out of the shelf).

But, FWIW, I\'ve already ordered Vol. II -- it should be arriving within the next week or two.

CD searches May 13, 2002

hey Uli and everybody,



If I install the CD in my system, and knowing that the CD contains the updated 2000 version of only the En>De pair, will I be able to do reverse searches in the En>De pair, i.e., enter a German word (not included in the 1989 version) and find the English equivalent?
