Good evening!

I am looking for a good (text)book on legal translation / legal drafting (German / English) and bilingual dictionary of law (German English / English German). Can you recommend anything?

Thank you!

Since no one has responded to this so far, I'll offer a few bilingual dictionary suggestions. (please note, I don't specialize in legal translation).
Dietl/Lorenz, Dictionary of Legal, Commercial and Political Terms / Wörterbuch für Recht, Wirtschaft und Politik. Two volumes: Englisch-Deutsch and German English

Romain/Byrd/Thielecke, Wörterbuch der Rechts- und Wirtschaftssprache / Dictionary of Legal and Commercial Terms Two volumes: Englisch-Deutsch and German-English

One I've also found useful:
Hamblock/Wessels Großwörterbuch Wirtschaftsenglisch 6th edition. There may be a companion volume in the other direction.

I don't know whether these are still available. You might check Kater-Verlag for other resources

Thank you Feb 19

Thanks so much. I will definitely look them up and see if they are (still) available. I have found a Magisterarbeit from Uni Wien comparing different legal dictionaries. If anyone is interested, this is the link

Danke nochmals, dass Sie Erbarmen mit mir hatten und geantwortet haben
