Dear all,
I've been asked by a Spanish friend who's just graduated as a technical engineer if I know if any kind of dictionary in this area: He wrote
quería pedirte a ver si me podías recomendar algún libro o apuntes de inglés técnico para ingenieros

This is a little out of my field I'm afraid, can anyone help me at all?
Much appreciated,

on-line dictionary Oct 28, 2003

The on-line dictionary of the European Union is very good

and the ProZ glossaries too, for that matter

Spanish-English Engineering dictionary Oct 29, 2003

Dear MooMel,
Tell your friend to go to or and ask the system to search for "Spanish-English Engineering dictionary"

If that does not work, try Ebay. Also, I must say that the Gran Larousse Spanish-English and English-Spanish dictionary has helped me with many a technical and engineering term.

Tell your friend, good luck!

Diccionario para ingenieros Oct 29, 2003

Another option is the «Diccionario para ingenieros» Español-inglés/inglés-español
by Luis A. Robb. It helps me a lot with my engineering translation. Hope it helps you!

Spanish-English technical dictionary Oct 29, 2003

I just received my copy of a Spanish-English technical dictionary put together by Virgilio González y Pozo. I bought it because it got a fairly good review in the ATA mag and because it's a Word document that I can convert to a database-friendly format. I'm not ready to recommend it just yet, but I have found items there that I wasn't able to find elsewhere. The author's e-mail is

More resources Oct 29, 2003

The «Diccionario para ingenieros» Español-inglés/inglés-español by Luis A. Robb hould definitely be among his written resources. Also, the "Diccionario Técnico Limusa" Español-inglés/inglés-español by Rafael García Díaz is a good choice to have around.

Good luck to your friend!
