Overview

In today's global village, nearly 450 million people speak English while another 350 million speak Spanish. The United States, with more than 22 million Hispanic Americans, is now generally considered to be a bilingual society. As the commercial, cultural, and intellectual traffic between English- and Spanish-speaking countries continues to grow, so too, does the need for precise communication between speakers of these two languages. In few technical fields is this need more obvious than in electrical and computer engineering.

The English-Spanish, Spanish-English Electrical and Computer Engineering Dictionary offers comprehensive up-to-date coverage of virtually every word and phrase you are likely to encounter in the electrical and computer engineering literature. The only book of its kind, it contains more than 95,000 entries—nearly 50,000 in each language. Designed for quick reference and clarity, it features an extremely user-friendly format that directs you instantly to the precise equivalent you need without first rerouting you through a maze of irrelevant terms and phrases. For idiomatic expressions, conceptual equivalents are provided, rather than literal translations. And phrases that begin with the same word or words are provided as separate entries.

This indispensable tool facilitates the sharing of ideas across linguistic, cultural, and international boundaries. For electrical and computer engineers, students of electrical engineering and computer science, and translators and interpreters who need quick easy access to equivalent terms in Spanish and English, there is simply no other source.

Comprehensive bilingual coverage of nearly 50,000 essential words and phrases found in electrical and computer engineering literature

The English-Spanish, Spanish-English Electrical and Computer Engineering Dictionary provides a ready reference to nearly 50,000 essential terms and phrases found in the electrical and computer engineering literature. The quick, user-friendly format means that you won't waste valuable research time leafing back and forth in search of the appropriate entry. And distinguished lexicographer Steven M. Kaplan has made every effort to provide equivalents with maximum clarity, accuracy, and timeliness.

The only English-Spanish dictionary specifically designed for electrical and computer engineers

  • User-friendly format directs you to the precise term you need without rerouting you to irrelevant words and phrases
  • Up-to-date, comprehensive, and authoritative coverage
  • A sturdy, hardbound edition that will stand the test of time

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...an indispensable tool for electrical and computer engineers & technical writers." (La Doc Computique, October 2000)
La Doc Computique
...an indispensable tool for electrical and computer engineers & technical writers.
Booknews
The format is designed for quick reference to the 95,000 terms and phrases found in the technical literature. Among them are both the latest terminology and words that are no longer in current use but appear in some of the older literature. Each entry is on a separate line, to avoid having to search through a paragraph of variants. The Spanish of different countries is distinguished. Conceptual equivalents rather than literal translations are provided for idiomatic expressions. No definition or explanation is provided. Kaplan has also prepared a Spanish-English legal dictionary.
