This e-book and the accompanying handbook attack many of the most crucial difficulties encountered by both native and non-native English speakers when translating scientific and engineering material from German.<br />The e-book is like a miniature encyclopaedia dealing with the fundamental conceptual basis of science, engineering and mathematics, with particular regard to <i>terminology</i>. It provides didactically organised dictionaries, thesauri and a wide range of microglossaries highlighting <i>polysemy, homonymy, hyponymy, context, collocation, usage</i> as well as grammatical, lexical and semantic considerations essential to accurate translation. It also supplies a wide variety of <i>reference material</i> and <i>illustrations</i> useful to self-taught professional technical translators, translator trainers at universities, and especially to student translators.<br />All the main branches of industrial technology are examined, such as <i>mechanical, electrical, electronic, chemical, nuclear engineering,</i> and fundamental terminologies are provided for a broad range of important subfields: <i>automotive engineering, plastics, computer systems, construction technology, aircraft, machine tools</i>.<br />The handbook provides a useful introduction to the e-book, enabling readers proficient in two languages to acquire the basic skills necessary for technical translation by familiarity with fundamental engineering conceptions themselves.
