The Kater Verlag has a special offer for automotive dictionaries. Normally, I'd say the later edition would be the one to buy (1994), but the earlier edition has more entries. Any recommendations?

1994 edition Oct 8, 2003

Hi Kim,

I have the 1994 and have been using it since 1999. It's completely reliable. I think that you've misread the ad. The 1994 has more entries since it says "Pro Sprache 75.000 Stichworte", doubling to 150,000 for the De-En and En-De pairs. Impossible for a dictionary to shrink with a future edition, no?

1991 not bad either Oct 8, 2003

Hi Kim,
I have the 1991 version and have been very happy with it. Very rarely have I not found something I need in it. For EUR 75 I would consider it an absolute steal.
Kind regards,
Rebecca
