Since I will be doing more work in this area, I am looking for a reliable and up-to-date French to English Scientific Dictionary. Does anyone here have any recommendations? (I would much prefer a paper dictionary as opposed to an online one).

I have used the Chambers Dictionary of Science and Technology (ISBN 0-550-13002-0) with quite a bit of sucess.
However, depending on the subject matter, online searches and glossaries can be much more useful than a paper dictionary which become outdated to the fast pace of development in some fields.

Hope that helps.

Try the Goursau website Sep 26, 2007

There are some very good dictionaries at www.goursau.fr. They have a 2-volume set of a Dictionary of Technical and Scientific terms (one volume is French to English, the other is the reverse language pair). They have a feature on the website where you can even click to see a page inside the dictionary - so that might be enough to tell you whether or not the terminology is what you are looking for.

I have several of their dictionaries and though they are in France and I'm in the U.S., they have always shipped promptly.

Good luck - HTH.
