Hi,
I am already a proud owner of the Gabler legal dictionary but would like an accompaniment. At this point there seems to be a multitude of choice with very few reviews from translators. I have seen the Cornelsen Wörterbuch Recht by Bachem/Hamblock. New on the market is the Langenscheidt/Alpmann Fachwörterbuch Kompakt und e-Fachwörterbuch Recht with CD-Rom.
There are of course much more comprehensive dictionaries at a much more comprehensive price which I'm not currently willing to pay as I only translate minimal amounts of legal work. Does anyone have any experience with either of the two dictionaries? Should one take preference over the other? Can anyone recommend an alternative that doesn't bust the bank?
Thanks very much!
Andrew Rennison.

I guess you're looking for De-En dictionaries Jan 5, 2006

Hi!

I guess you're looking for De-En dictionaries. The two standards that come up time and time again are Dietl/Lorenz and Romain. Some people love one and hate the other - I find them both equally useful.

I also like to check legal usage in Garner's Modern Legal Usage (EN monolingual) to make sure that I've got the wording right.

HTH
