As part of a longer technical document I have to translate the standard texts explaining ISO drawing symbols for electrical and hydrolic plan drawings.
These are standardised and incorporated in CAD tools for instance. They are tought at technical colleges. They can be bought in specialised text books .. but are they not publicly available somewhere on the net.
In particular ISO 128 : 1982 - Dessins technique - Principes général de représentation.
I need to translate into Danish.
Thank you all in advance.
As a matter of ISO policy, International Standards are available only in exchange for financial reward ('profit', if you prefer...). There have been attempts to publish some on the web (including on wikipedia), but they have been systematically removed for infringing copyright. The same applies, in principle, to publications from CENELEC, the IEC, the ITU and many other such bodies.
I suggest you first look here: http://www.ds.dk/ to see if the ISO text has been translated and transposed as a Danish National Standard by Dansk Standard. If so, they will no doubt be happy to sell you a copy ...
The following is the first of 13 hits from a search for '128' and 'technical drawing' on the DS website:
