Does anybody know of a GOOD and complete ENGLISH-SPANISH dictionary of organic chemistry?

I am translating patents so it should be something as up-to-date as possible (although many times only the ones that do the inventions know what they mean!!)

Anyway, it would help a lot.
Thanks in advance.
Grace.

nothing in glosspost :o( Sep 30, 2003

There's nothing for English-Spanish I'm afraid.

Looking in Amazon I found this one:
Wiley's English-Spanish Spanish-English Chemistry Dictionary. Steven M. Kaplan (Editor)
There are no costumer's reviews, just the synopsis:
"Over 350 million people worldwide speak Spanish. A growing number of research and industrial chemistry projects are being conducted or undertaken in association with Spanish speaking countries and the often complex chemical terminologies can pose a serious problem to these projects. This dictionary should appeal to those who wish to increase their interaction with the international chemical community. It contains over 40,000 words and phrases. The volume includes organic, inorganic and analytical chemistry, biochemistry, and physical chemistry.
From the Back Cover:
Comprehensive bilingual coverage of over 40,000 essential words and phrases found in chemistry literature.
Wiley's English-Spanish, Spanish-English Chemistry Dictionary provides a ready reference to more than 40,000 essential terms and phrases found in the chemistry literature. Its quick, user-friendly format means that you won't waste valuable research time leafing back and forth in search of the appropriate entry. And distinguished lexicographer Steven M. Kaplan has made every effort to provide equivalents with maximum clarity, accuracy, and timeliness.
Up-to-date, comprehensive, and authoritative coverage *Indispensable for students, researchers, translators, and others working in chemistry *Entries cover different fields within chemistry and include thousands of chemical compounds *User-friendly format directs you to the precise term you need without rerouting you to other irrelevant words and phrases *A wealth of information in one portable, handy volume".

If anyone has it or knows about it I'd love to hear (well, read!) opinions.

Thanks,
Grace.

ENGLISH-SPANISH ORGANIC CHEM DICTIONARY Sep 26, 2004

I am not aware of one exclusively about organic chemistry. There is a fairly comprehensive Gallego-Spanish-English vocabulary of chemistry available online from the Universidad de Santigo de Compostela as a .pdf file: http://www.usc.es/~snlus/quimica.pdf and also available in a print version I think.
