I HAVE USED IT IN THE PAST Jan 17, 2003

If I had to assign it a mark between 1 and 10, I would say 6.



I definitely prefer the technical dictionaries published by Routledge and by Javier Collazo.



Guy Malgorn´s dictionary has a very useful table of conversion of temperature, measures, pitches and other items.



If you are going to buy it APART from Routledge or Collazo, OK. But I would not buy it INSTEAD of these. Even Louis Robb is better.



Regards.



Robert

My preferred technical dictionary, also the most complete I believe.

Limited scope Jan 17, 2003

I use it regularly.



It only claims to cover \"machine tools, mining, internal combustion engines, aviation, electricity, radio, ship-building, metallurgy, public works and commerce\".



Moreover, I would say that the order in which the subjects are listed reflects the dictionary\'s strengths, i.e. excellent for machine tools, of little use for public works and commerce.



With that proviso, it is a useful addition to my terminology resources, and I don\'t remember it being very expensive.

I use it regularly, besides other technical dictionaries, and I don\'t have complains about it. Please notice that it\'s a Spanish edition, thus most of the terms are more suitable for Spain.

Also, it provides terminology mainly related to mechanical engineering. It\'s a good investment.
