Editorial Reviews

Gr 3-6-In an interesting twist on the bilingual dictionary, this one combines English-language computer and internet-related terms with their Spanish equivalents and definitions. The book's slant, which did not exist in its original English-language incarnation, reflects the ubiquity of English-language terms in the computer industry and the need for Spanish speakers to be able to find definitions for those terms. There's an unexpected bonus for users whose second language is Spanish: They can turn here for terminology not likely to be included in most English-Spanish dictionaries. Cross references are plentiful. The definition of "keyboard," for example, provides the Spanish equivalent teclado, a Spanish definition, and references to the definitions for terms such as "information," "input device," "interface," "PC," "Macintosh," and "symbol." Sidebars addressing such issues as "Are watches computers?" and "Advice for protecting your password" are scattered throughout. A list of acronyms, a chart of typographical measurements, metric prefixes, emoticons are appended. A final section provides crossword puzzles, word finds, and other games. Illustrations are decorative and humorous, designed to appeal to children. This great resource should be in every library and computer lab serving Spanish speakers, and should do well in bookstores as well. Highly recommended.
