It contains thousands of terms as a two-column table. I have downloaded the German-English Word version and found that it contains a large number of spelling mistakes. Therefore I suggest downloading the Word version rather than the PDF (if you can edit Word files) so that you can correct the mistakes as you enounter them. The best so far:
the term that should be "working time restrictions" has the term above it inserted so that it became:
woroperational assessmentking time restrictions
The spellings are American, e.g. sulfite.
It could be very useful in spite of this.

I agree with Oliver. The table contains numerous mistakes and should be used with caution. The spelling is a highly inconsistent mix of American and British English.

Nonetheless, it is probably very helpful.

Greetings, John
