Can anyone provide a reference for a French-English dictionary that deals with watch-making (horlogerie)?

Glossary French - Spanish Feb 10, 2002


Here you have a very good glossary -though in French and Spanish-, which is part of a colleague´s university final project:


http://www.uem.es/traduccion/proyecfin/ainhoarelojes.pdf


Terms are explained with definitions and examples of use are given as well.


Best regards,

Elsevier published a nice 5-language one in 1984: Feb 11, 2002

Dictionary of Jewellery and Watchmaking, compiled by Carl Forget, Elsevier, Amsterdam.

It\'s in English alphabetical order, with lookup tables in the back for French, German, Italian, and Spanish. The thing\'s very expensive though, and not worth the price unless you\'re going to need it a lot. It claims to be \"the first of its kind to be published in more than forty years\"; I have no idea whether it\'s been superseded.
