recommendable dictionaries Nov 13, 2001

Dietl-Lorenz, Wb für Recht, Wirschaft & Politik (good and reliable)

Der grosse Eichborn, WB Wirtschaft, Recht, Verwaltung, Politik, Verkehr, Kommunikation ( very comprehensive, convenient because it lists many standard expressions, but not cheap)

Zahn, Bank-und Börsenwesen

Schäfer, Wirtschaftswoerterbuch

Routledge, Wirtschaft,Handel und Finanzen( VERY limited, I would not buy it again)



IT- Brandtstetter, WB Daten-und Kommunikationstechnik

(I also have Langenscheidt\'s Information Technology, but find it very limited. But I don\'t do much IT )

Microsoft Computerlexikon( includes bilingual glossary)



Ernst, Wörterbuch der Technik



These are the dictionaries I use most frequently. Depending on your interest and specialties, there are of course many more, including medical, textile etc.

A kind Proz colleague gave me the address of a German publisher who has a great selection and ships his stuff anywhere, even to Canada. When you leave through his catalogue you\'ll feel like a kid in a candy store... http://www.kater-verlag.de

Happy browsing!

Dear Johanna Nov 13, 2001

Thanks for your expert advice.

Could you also say which of those are on CD?

I know that my bible Ernst is on CD (and to the asker: It\'s super on technical matters)

Advice on quality dictionaries E-G Nov 14, 2001

I agree with Johanna and have almost the same selection of dictionaries on my bookshelf (except for \"Der Grosse Eichborn\", which I often find unprecise/unprofessional). I have one more dictionary to add which I think is a must (and also extremely comprehensive) in the field of business/economics/marketing. It also includes a lot of collocations, idioms etc.

\"Großwörterbuch Wirtschaftsenglisch\" Englisch-Deutsch, Deutsch-Englisch, by Hamblock/Wessels, Cornelsen Verlag (approx. 200 Euro for both volumes).
