Hi there!

Would any kind soul tell me if there is a comprehensive and reliable German>English automobile glossary on the Internet? I've been commissioned a subtitling/translation project about the Audi4 and there are lots of terms relating to the engine, gears and shock absorbers. I want to check the terminology, but don't have any very reliable sources. I'm waiting for the client to give me some feedback, but I haven't heard anything yet.

Any ideas would be be greatly appreciated.

All the best.

For shockers, the best one is in my head. Dec 10, 2007

Hi Desmond,

For general automotive terms, I have found this one useful:

As far as shock absorbers are concerned, I am afraid the best one is in my head, having worked in the business for 11 years.

I might be able to help you with a term or two. Place them in the KudoZ section, and I will do what I can. You never know, you might get a few more suggestions and sites to guide you further.
