Does anyone have a copy of this that you would like to sell for a reasonable price? I don't really care what condition it is in as long as it is still usable, but I do need it immediately (by Thursday 31 Jan). I could pick it up from Amsterdam, if you happened to be there.

Alternatively, where could I buy it new/second-hand, and does it really cost € 215?

3rd edition, September 2005 Jan 29, 2008

Hi Susan,

Make sure if you buy a second-hand copy that you get the third edition, September 2005, as that was an extensive rework and is better than the older versions.

There is also a CD version and an online version. You can order directly from www.gatewayvertalingen.nl.

Thanks Jan 30, 2008

Thanks. I have seen that I can take a one-month trial subscription to the web version. I think I'll do that, and see how useful it is while checking this project. I only ever do fairly general legal work, so I'm not sure the investment is worthwhile right now, though I would like to get the book one day.

For future reference, it is a good investment if you decide to take on more legal work. In fact, almost indispensible, because it's viewed as the "bible" of legal translation with precious little competition in the NL»EN market.

As a lawyer, I don't agree with entries sometimes and, at times, the EN doesn't quite hit the spot, but no dictionary is ever going to be perfect. It is just a resource, but a very valuable one and generally accurate. I use it at least once or twice a day myself, even though legalese is second nature to me because of my training.

Good luck with your project
Debs
