Lexicographer and
terminologist Kenneth Allen Hornak, author of 18 specialized dictionaries,
brings to lexicography his expertise in English-Spanish || Spanish-English
scientific and technical terminology acquired over many years of successful
translation work in various fields.  This
experience has made him acutely aware of the needs faced by a professional
translator and all other translators when he or she consults a dictionary.  Unlike almost every other bilingual,
scientific dictionary, his works are rife with real-life, bilingual example
sentences which allow the user to see how the entry is used practically in the
real world.


After completing his
formal education with degrees both from the Pennsylvania State University and
the Universidad de Salamanca, in Spain, he continued to specialize in
English-Spanish || Spanish-English science terminology throughout his
professional career spanning nearly 26 years. Mr. Hornak currently has 20
additional bilingual dictionaries in various stages of development.
