Given the recent advances in telecommunications and the fact that the French lead the field in many aspects of information technology, this will be a valuable tool for students, translators and interpreters. The author has himself worked for a number of years as a technical translator and the dictionary reflects his knowledge and practical experience. 30,000 entries in each language cover terminology used in telecommunications, electronics and computer science, and developments in related disciplines such as the design and manufacture of printed circuits and components, installation, testing, maintenance and software programming.

`I am confident that this dictionary will become a standard reference on translator's bookshelves ... extremely good value.' - Language International
`Every so often, there comes a specialist dictionary that really stands out from the crowd. And that's the case for the French Dictionary of Information Technology. The Presentation is agreeably clean and uncluttered, the book itself remarkably light in the hand for its size, and the price, £50, light on the pocket for such a work.' - Hieronymus
`A very important, and attractively produced dictionary for research collections in academia and industry.' - New Tech Books
