Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone of you knows a good specific vocabulary for tourism, travel etc.... Maybe one specific for translations related to hotels, restaurants etc...
I only found this "CD-ROM Duboux multilingual dictionary – 7 lingue" anyone of you know it???
Thanks for the help.

Use the Internet Mar 6, 2007

I work mostly in this field and when I started I only had some common dictionaries and Internet to rely on. If you are keen in Internet searches you will be able to build up your own glossary in few weeks - so did I.

Ciao, Laura.
Ti invito a visitare questo sito:

This link leads to a comprehensive dictionary of travel industry terms, which was created for travel agencies, home-based travel agents, and travel writers.
The dictionary is easy to use and can be helpful when a translator is looking for definitions of terms and phrases that are used in the special jargon of the travel business.

tourism Mar 7, 2007

tourism is a field where there is no one big universal dictionary suitable for all the world due to the fact that its a very versatile field.
from my own experience I can say over the course of time you will end up with your own dictionary (if you specialize in this field) and it will be made up of terms from general dictionaries, wine terminology, culinary, hotel and hospitality and other terminology.
Also as previous poster mentioned Internet is of great help.
