OK I did a quick search of the forums and couldn\'t find this topic, so here is the question. I\'m thinking of investing in a technical dictionary (German to English) or maybe two. I already have a Langenscheidts dictionary of chemistry and two materials science dictionaries but could do with a good general technical dictionary. Can anyone give me any recommendations? I\'ve seen that a lot of people in my language combination use Ernst, but is this the best one?



TIA

There are a few possibilities Feb 10, 2003

I\'m waiting for the new Ernst (the German>Eng version has been due for a while; the CD-ROM relies on the older version for this direction, although ENG>GER is more current), so I\'ve been relying on Kucera, \"WB der exakten Naturwissenschaften und der Technik\" 2002, ISBN 3-87097-150-9. The old Walther has been updated, but I haven\'t used it much (and a customer has it at the moment, so I can\'t give you the exact details). The Krupp/Langenscheidt \"FachWB Maschinen- und Anlagenbau\" 1999, ISBN 3-86117-138-4 has been useful in a variety of contexts. The Bezner/Siemens \"FachWB industrielle Ellektrotechnik, Energie-und Automatisierungstechnik\" has been amazingly useful for all sorts of computer/electronics/robotics applications, 1998, ISBN 3-89578-077-4. There\'s a new edition on the horizon.

HTH, Kevin
