      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.

        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.

        Melvyn

          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).
