'I believe that this dictionary is indispensable for the Spanish translator who needs a good, up-to-date, one-volume technical dictionary.' - ATA Chronicle

'This exquisite two-volume set will be a coveted addition to any translator's reference collection. It follows in the rich tradition of Routledge's French (1994) and German (1995) technical dictiories…With the publication of this two-volume set, Routledge has created a classic reference that will be widely used and respected by casual and professional translators and researchers for years to come' - Technical Communication

'The contents are outstanding: access to these contents via their arrangement is also of the highest quality. The overall result is an admirable example of a modern dictionary specifically for technical use.' - Languages and Literature

'this broadly-ranging yet admirably detailed technical dictionary should find widespread application throughout industry and commerce, and particularly in our own circumstances, in any library likely to deal with either technical translation enquiries or more generally with the Spanish language' - Languages and Literature

'a very useable bilingual dictionary and would be highly recommended for libraries collecting in the physical sciences and engineering.' - E-Stream
