        Hi Martina,

        Consider buying the Millenium dictionary software - it´s big, much faster
        then searching in books and - I hope - affordable when living in UK or
        working as a professional translator (some CZK 15,000, Mirek, correct me If
        I´m wrong). Further details upon request.

        BTW this one includes most of what Bob was proposing.

        HIH

          Hello Martina,

          There was a discussion on this list a while ago about the merits of various
          Cz-Eng. dictionaries. Check out the Czechlist archives on

          http://www.egroups.com/messages/Czechlist

          with the keyword "dictionaries" (sorry, I have a habit of stating the
          obvious).

          Of the economics dictionaries most people's favourite seemed to be the
          Caforio Czech-English Dictionary and nobody was happy with the Linde Odborny
          slovnik z oblasti ekonomicke, obchodni, financni a pravni. Other favourite
          specialist dictionaries of mine include:


          Ctyrjazycny pravnicky slovnik - Codex 1997
          Stavebni slovnik - Montanex 1996
          Akademicky slovnik cizich slov - Academia - 1995 - Cz-Cz, has been mentioned
          a few times on this list - helps out a lot with the many unusual loan-words,
          Technicky slovnik - SNTL - 1969 (though there are much more up-to-date ones
          available now
          Odborny slovnik ekologie a ochrana zivotniho prostredi - Loxia - 1999 - has
          received several honourable mentions here -
          Svetove ucetnictvni - Linde - 1998 - not a dictionary as such but has a
          valuable glossary at the back.
          The Trade Links series of Czech Laws includes a dictionary with parallel
          passages describing each Act and its key concepts in Czech and English.



          There are Cz-Eng dictionaries on every conceivable subject these days:
          education, medicine, non-profit organizations, librarianship, architecture
          and construction, power engineering, water-management, banking and finance,
          cars, chemistry, theology, skiing, computer science, hunting, accounting,
          fishing, electronics, logistics, psychiatry, insurance, printing,
          meteorology, genealogy...

          Which fields aren't covered these days? I think there is a gap for geology
          but I can't think of anything else.

            Last week I hooked a nice piece: Hornicky slovnik a-c and c-a, containing
            also geological terminology.
            (In Olomouc, Knihkupectvi Tycho, they are really good).
