Web tool Jul 1, 2009

Hi Romina,
I don't know about a particular En-Sp dict. on labor legislation but my most effective on-line tool is http://www.wordreference.com/es/translation. It gives you complete definition of the word, sinonims, conj, translation, context, etc. + forum which is quite reliable.
Regards,

The Alcaraz Varó perhaps? Jul 1, 2009

I don't have the dictionary in front of me right now, but there is a business/economy/commerce dictionary, the Alcaraz Varó which, in its current edition contains a ton of good explanations about all things business. Very probably labour too.

Maybe you want to put it to a test: feel free to Proz-email me a list of a few terms you would check if you had to choose a dictionary at a bookshop and when I get to the office in the morning I will tell you whether they appear in the dictionary and their translations.

The actual book is called "Diccionario de terminos economicos, financieros y comerciales. Ingles-español y español-ingles", by Alcaraz Varó. If you finally decide to order it, be careful as most e-shops only show the 2004 edition in their websites whereas there is a very recent edition, from 2008 I think. I have both an old one from 1996 and the recent one and the latter is better and bigger.

OK, but... Jul 1, 2009

I agree that it is a starting point, but it is far too general for these purposes and I would only use as an initial orientation. A specialised dictionary is something well worth paying for in my opinion.

Dear Tomás,

I really appreciate your answer, and I do use Alcaraz Varó´s dictionaries a lot. In fact, the one that you mentioned was one of my first acquisitions. And yes, it is true that it has plenty of labor related terms, but I was hoping to get my hands on one that specializes in that area.

Thank you,

Romina
