I'm translating (Spanish - English) a book on the architecture of libraries over vthe next 3 months, and I wondered if anyone knows of any good glossaries/dictionaries/other resources on the net - free or not. Or not on the net, come to that..? Thanks.

some resources Jul 28, 2006

Most of the bilingual glossaries I had in my favorites seem to have disappeared, but here are some resources that might help:

http://www.arquitecturavisual.com/diccionario.php - Spanish only

http://www.geocities.com/aib_dicc/page2.html - Spanish only

http://www.uky.edu/Classes/A-H/323/restricted/terms.htm#h - English only

http://www.dreamghar.com/adic.html - English only

A very useful dictionary that you might consider buying is the Diccionario Visual de Arquitectura by Francis D.K. Ching (Ediciones G. Gili, SA de CV). I bought mine a few years ago at Casa del Libro in Madrid, and it wasn't all that expensive, compared to other dictionaries I have. The illustrations are fantastic, and it is quite complete.

I have used the "Diccionario de arquitectura, construcción y obras públicas" a few times and I find it very useful (lots of graphics, too). It is from the Paraninfo publishing company (university publisher).

I bought it in a university bookshop (in Madrid, in Moncloa) where you can find lots of useful technical dictionaries.

PS: Cindy, great architecture bibliographical tips! Just bookmarked them.
