Hi all,

most recently I ordered the following new book/dictionary containing standard contracts as German-English full texts arranged in parallel:

Author: Stummel, Dieter

Title: Standardvertragsmuster zum Handels- und Gesellschaftsrecht.

C.H.Beck, 2002.

The author is a lawyer working both in Germany and the US. It\'d cost you 77 euros to get it from Kater Verlag, the leading online bookshop for specialised dictionaries in Germany.

IMHO this publication could spare you a lot of trouble and research when it comes to producing accurate and authentic contractual documents. A CD-ROM version would be even better though - the joys of copy and paste Perhaps such an edition is planned for the future - I\'ll try to find out more.

For detailed info, go to:

Have received the book yesterday and can highly recommend it.

Regards to all of you from Berlin,

Thanks, Steffen! Nov 6, 2002

This sounds like a useful investment. I don\'t do many contracts, but when I have to, it is nearly always at top speed/last minute, and I am often asked to explain bits and pieces (risky, I know, and of course I refer askers to the Legal Dept).

Have been relying on Dietl, Garner (Dict of Mod Legal Usage) and \"Legal Letter Works\" (a collection of American template letters and contracts).
