Hi all,

My agency is getting more and more jobs for food lables to translate. To make this a bit easier I am looking for glossaries (books) in as much as possible languages.

Does someone has an idea where I can find those? I searched the internet and asked the bookstore without any luck.

Thanks for your help,

Rob

The EVZ maintains a database with all food additives permitted by European law(s) (in all European languages afaik).
Currently there are about 300 (not much room left for food, is there?).

Look here (site in German):
http://www.ecc-kiel.de/food/enummern.html

Hope this helps.

Thanks Russell for the link. Although it is quite helpfull, it also very limited.

There must be books about this topic I assume (and hope).

Hi MP.

Thanks for the link. This one is usefull too, but only for approved additives in Europe.
I often have many ingredients to translate which are not listed in this database.

Two more... Jul 11, 2006

Hi!

This is all I have among my favorite links, but I'm afraid they're encyclopedias, not dictionaries (i.e., not multilingual)

http://www.ochef.com/index.html

http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/ck_encyclopedia

I hope they help anyway

P.S.: Have you looked in Glosspost? I did a search by the "Food & Dairy" category and came up with a few hits...

Well, in that case ... Jul 11, 2006

... you can try RAMON : http://ec.europa.eu/comm/eurostat/ramon/nomenclatures/index.cfm?TargetUrl=LST_NOM_DTL&StrNom=CN_2006&IntCurrentPage=1&StrLanguageCode=EN

Click on Section IV "Prepared Foodstuffs ..." and then (on top of the page) on "Downloadable documents on this classification". There you'll find a 8.5 MB Access Database with descriptions of foodstuffs in 20 languages.

Well worth a look.

Best,
mp

PS: You need JavaScript enabled in order to see the link to downloable documents ...

Dear Rob,

Maybe thisis of some help?

http://www.xs4all.nl/~margjos/indxnlgr.htm
http://www.fao.org/wairdocs/tan/x5995e/X5995e04.htm
http://www.bakkerssoftware.com/en/Specifications.php?f=0
http://www.observ.be/beta/nl/denkers.php?ID=193&LEVEL=2;dedo=DE
http://www.food-info.net/nl/national/ww-aspartaam.htm

And then there is the 'culinair woordenboek' by van Liesbeth Spreeuwenberg, EN-NL and NL-EN.

I realize these are all about cooking etc, not about food labels, but still.

Best regards,
Saskia

Thank you very much for your effort! All others who had good suggestions, thanks too!
