Just been informed about this resource by one of my customers. Apparently, you can get online access to the following Langenscheidt dictionaries for an annual fee of €129. (A little more than ProZ platinum icon_wink.gif):

Wörterbuch Technik deutsch-englisch

Wörterbuch Biotechnologie deutsch-englisch

Wörterbuch Chemie deutsch-englisch

Wörterbuch Biologie deutsch-englisch

Wörterbuch Ökologie deutsch-englisch

Wörterbuch Medizin deutsch-englisch

Wörterbuch Physik deutsch-englisch


My question is, does anyone have any experience with this resource? Are the dictionaries worth it and is the service reliable? Although they do offer a \'taster\' two-week subscription for free, you have to fill in your payment details up front, which makes me a little nervous!


The dictionaries would cost in the region of €199 each to buy separately on CD-ROM.


Please note the site is only available (AFAIK) in German.


TIA for any guidance, and a very happy and prosperous new year to all! icon_smile.gif

Hello Mary,


I just looked into the site and found that one can try it two weeks for free.

I think it is a great idea, but not exactly the choice of dictionaries that would fit my need. The price looks reasonable to me. Even if you bought all of them, in a couple of years you\'d have to buy again the latest version. If I specialized in science/technology I would go for it.


Greetings,

Birgit
