Can anybody recommend a technical dictionary (German-French-German, German-English-German) focussed on machine tools to me?

Thanks a lot.

Old, but not bad Oct 25, 2002

Not purely about machine tools, but it contains a substantial number of relevant entries:

The Illustrated Dictionary of Mechanical Engineering

(English, German, French, Spanish & Russian)

Pub. Moscow \"Russky Yazyk\" 1986

My copy is not exactly new, I don\'t know if there\'s an updated version, but I do find it VERY useful (particularly as it has clear diagrammatic illustrations for many entries)

I can\'t recommend a dictionary, but I strongly recommend that you get the Dubbel \"Taschenbuch für den Maschinenbau\" if you are working in this field. Don\'t be put off by the \"Taschenbuch\" - it weights about 3 kg and is very informative. An English translation is also available and is very useful in conjunction with the original, though it may not include all chapters (my edition doesn\'t). Dubbel has also been translated into other languages (Chinese and Romanian are two I have seen).
