I\'m currently doing a translation on the topic mentioned in the header. Does anyone know of any good glossaries or websites that they could recommend - some of the terms are extremely hard to find in my 2 technical dictionaries and I\'m not having much luck with leo and dicdata either.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

This is Transport Canada\'s site, and as you\'ll see on the left hand side, there is a French button. Everything on the site should be in French and English.

Crash Test Dummies Jul 25, 2002

I don\'t know a glossary which is so specific, and I would be surprised to learn that such a glossary even exists outside the well-shut offices of a handful of highly specialized manufacturers and patent translators.

Here is what I would do: Search the Euro NCAP website (English only). This is the organization that carries out crash tests for Europe. They provide extensive testing documentation and protocols. Rushing through I saw that under, for example, there is something about Hybrid III test dummies, dummy certification etc. The EuroNCAP\'s US counterpart in the field of crash tests is the NHTSA:

When it comes to translating things are even more difficult. (More or less) parallel texts on automotive issues can be found at GM\'s site, such as (German) and (French).

I also found articles on crash test dummies in the Mercedes magazine under German), chez Renault and under (both in French).

Good luck

... for your really helpful links. The translation was quite tough, so it was great to have some reference points.
