UIC Railway dictionary Feb 26, 2003

If you get a lot of work on trains and railway texts (and I do!), I truly recommend buying the UIC Railway Dictionary, which is the industry standard since it\'s compiled and published by the Union Internationale des Chemins de fer.



You can buy it from Kater Verlag:

http://www.kater-verlag.de/



Click on \'Eisenbahn\' on the left column. It costs EUR 165.



By the way, it\'s multilingual so you not only get English-Spanish but French, German, Italian and Portugues as well.



I also have the CD which is truly astounding since it has all the major European languages. If you do major translation on trains, then I suggest investing the EUR 350 on the CD.



I looked at the largest collection of Spanish-Eng diction. and gloss. but couldn\'t find any.



If you have problematic terms, post them as KudoZ and I\'ll answer.



Marcus

Marcus is right Feb 26, 2003

I use the same dictionary but I bought it from:

http://www.grantandcutler.com/catalogues/translator/d110.htm

The dictionary in question is:

Lexique général des termes ferroviaires (General dictionary of railway terminology): FrenchGermanEnglishItalianSpanishDutch (Union Internationale des Chemins de Fer), 4th, revised edition, pp.1250, hardback, 1988. £63.50



You can order on line and they will send it to you. I think you can also get a CD-ROM version but you\'ll have to check.
