Some glossaries Jan 29, 2004

I am not quite sure what you are looking for - if it is general conditions - there are many to be found on the web.

Such as the general terms and conditions (in English) as used by the Dutch translators organisation....

Eng-Eng glossaries (financial/business):

Could you point out what it is exactly you are looking for?

Anjo

Resources... Jan 30, 2004

Ok, Luca, that's it!
I've just a few suggestions... First of all, two little books about Business English terms: the first one ("Modern English Commercial Correspondence") - edited by Hoepli - is quite good. It's an old version, but they keep on publishing it, so I suppose it's not that obsolete! It is written in English but it's thought for Italian students so you may find here and there a few references to Italian Business language. The other one is edited by Avvalardi ("Inglese - Corrispondenza Commerciale e Privata") and is completely thought for Italian students so every commercial letter or term is translated in Italian... They are hand-books but if you're looking for general English Commercial terms they're quite helpful! As for other suggestions, well, in Rome there's a very good and efficient German bookstore (HERDER EDITRICE) which also sells books in English (such as grammars ecc...) thought for German students. You can find a lot of stuff there!!
Well, that's it... I didn't wanted to post it in this forum because these resources can be helpful only for En-It translators or at least for translators dealing with Italian as well...

Hi, Paul!

I don't know exactly what you are interested in, but you may find the words you are looking for at http://hud.gov/buying/terms eng-sp.cfm.
This is a page located on the U.S. Department of Housing and Development's Homes and Communities, and there are a English/Spanish dictionary and a Spanish/English one containing only words related to business. I hope you find it interesting.

Best regards,

Teresa
