Hi,

I\'ve been \'tooling around\' the Net trying to find a good glossary of tool terms (hand, impact, etc. tools), eng to fr, without much success.

Perhaps I should familiarise myself with Internet tools first, eh?

But work awaits, and try as I might, I can\'t squeeze 27 hours out of a day. I thought perhaps someone in our helpful community could point me in the right direction.

TIA

I\'ll owe you one

Try the advanced panel in Google, in the *with the exact phrase* field, type \"hand tools\" +glossary or \"impact tools\" +glossary. I would list some for you, but there are way too many and I don\'t know what you need.



You can refine the search criteria more if you like. Have a look at http://www.mabercom.com/websearch/index.html for some excellent search tips.



HTH,

Karin Adamczyk

Here's a link... Apr 2, 2003

Hi Nancy,

Here is one link that I like, of course it depends on how technical and on what tools you are looking for. Hope it helps.

Power Tools Apr 2, 2003

From GlossPost:



url: http://www.metabo.com



lang: ES, EN, DE



kwd: technical terms, power tools, drills



src: the Metabo company



cmt: Under the topic \"to the countries\", you will find all the

countries with Metabo-subsidiaries. Choose one and under the point

\"service\" (or the respective word in another language) you will find a

technical glossary with a lot of useful terms and explanations.

Metabo link Apr 5, 2003

Hello Maria,

I can\'t get the link to work as a glossary. It only works as an English dictionary for me. I tried the English page with French targeted, I also went to the French page but there is no dictionary or glossary under the Services heading on the French page. It probably just doesn\'t exist in French, and as for FR>EN or EN>FR, I don\'t think it exists either.
