Technical/tradesperson Deutsch Dictionary

Has anyone come across an English/Deutsch dictionary for Technical or Trades people? I have searched but have found nothing specific for this area. I have not looked at the eletronic translators, maybe there is an add on program for one of those? I need it for the Building / Furniture making field, has anyone in Architecture come across something useful? Thanks.

Re: Technical/tradesperson Deutsch Dictionary

www.baulexikon.de/dictionary/ is a moderately useful online resource specific to the building industry.

www.leo.org is a very comprehenisive general online dictionary that is well-known and widely used.

For print, I can suggest Wörterbuch Bau Englisch Deutsch published by Cornelsen. I have the 2006 edition, which cost 101.-CHF, but there may be a newer edition by now. Check with the bookstore Orell Füssli Krauthammer Buchhandlung für Architektur, Kunst, Design, Marktgasse 12 for other possibilities. Their website is simply www.books.ch. From the beginning of February they will be moved to Orell Füssli Kramhof on Bahnhofstrasse (near tram station Rennweg).

OR
Buchhandlung für Architektur Kunst und Design,
Gasometerstrasse 28 +41 44 271 25 00
info@hochparterre-buecher.ch
opening times:
Mo-Fr 9.30 - 18.30 Uhr
Sa 9.30 - 17 Uhr

Re: Technical/tradesperson Deutsch Dictionary

Thanks all for your prompt replies, I now have something concrete (Beton?) to search for, then the simple matter of memorising it cover to cover........
