Dear Colleagues,

I am working on a rather detailled EN>DE translation about a sewing machine. It is described down to the smallest parts, and I am really stuck with some of them. To make it even worse, the client also wants me to translate a glossary of sewing terms, such as Basting, Ease, Facing, Grain, Interfacing, Marking, etc.

Do you know of any online dictionaries that might help? I tried the Forum Search and GlossPost, but to no avail.

Thank you in advance,
Stefanie

Hi Stephanie Apr 5, 2005

I had a sewing machine manual to translate (EN-FR) last week. I have found some really valuable documentation on the Pfaff website, it's multilingual. It could be useful you're ready to "track" ther terms!

Sewing Machines Apr 5, 2005

Hi Stefanie,

one of my regular clients is a Japanese manufacturer of industrial sewing machines. The problem with the terminology is that most of it is special company's terminology. That's why Pfaff is not so good for any one. If I have time, I will be happy to help you once in a while.

Best Regards

L. R. Cerna

Thank you Apr 5, 2005

Thank you for all the links provided and help offered. I am working with Antje's first link right now. It seems really useful, although the German version is not perfect. But all links are definitely a great help. Thanks again!

Stefanie
