I'm considering buying this glossary, but I first wanted to know if anybody uses it and finds it useful.
I'm not specialized in this area, but I translate quite a lot of texts about furniture and also clothing and I always waste so much time to find the right translation of terms related to leather for my language pair (DE->FR).

It would cost about 50 EUR incl. shipping, though, so I'd like to be sure it's worth it and really useful and reliable. I couldn't find it in any library here to first take a look at it.

This is the glossary I'm talking about:
International Glossary of Leather Terms
prepared by the International Council of Tanners
The Glossary lists terms in 5 languages in a single volume: English, French, German, Italian and Spanish

Thanks a lot, I didn't know this one, it would be half the price indeed.

In the meantime, I've found a few things in the language pair DE-EN and since there are quite a lot of EN-FR resources, maybe it will be enough for my needs.
There was an extended "Leder-Glossar" of Max Kampmann in "Lebende Sprachen" a few years ago.
