Currently only available through Unilex Feb 1, 2018

Last update: EvoTerm referred me to Iris Hensel (Oxtoby's wife?), but she's not replying to emails.

The only option now is Unilex, which offers both online access and a download version. According to the person who replied to my email, some people would be interested in continuing the management of this dictionary, but as of now that's still not decided. I guess it will still be useful for existing terminology, up to a point where too much new terminology has developed that is not added to the GWIT.

I think I'll also buy the download version. And maybe there are other dictionaries in the Unilex catalogue that are useful to me.

Hi Matthijs,

I'm one of those people that would be interested in continuing the management of the dictionary. I've been in contact with Hans from Acolada, and he has been in contact with Graham's wife, but I haven't heard back from him for a wile, and have a feeling things got stuck somewhere.

I really hope they manage to sort something out because it would be a real shame if the entire database would merely remain in limbo forever, as it is now. In any event, I too got myself the download version, which I am happily using the time being.

I also got myself "Lexicon Financieel Management" (EnglishDutch)(see: http://www.acolada.de/xist4c/web/Lexicon-Financieel-Management--English-Dutch--Download_id_4583__dId_31060_.htm ), which is pretty good, although it doesn't really compare to Aart van den End's amazing JurLex/OGL.

Michael

I just sent another email to Hans, asking him if any progress has been made, and for Graham's wife's contact details. Will report back here if I hear anything.

Michael
