Hi, Can anyone suggest a real good Spanish-English Dictionary with grammar and technical and business terminology. I know this was discussed in a previous post but I can't remember what was suggested. Thank you.

Thank you. Could give the names of the books you use?

I translate Japanese patents, so my resources would be of no help to you. But I see that you live in NY, and if you go to NYC you should be able to find many bookstores that carry specialized Spanish dictionaries. Of course, you could get them at Amazon, etc., but I always like to look through a dictionary before buying it. If you find some dictionaries online that look promising, you might ask here if anyone has used them.

I'm a translator, and in my experience there are no good "dictionaries of everything." That is, it is best to have a collection of dictionaries that specialize in certain areas. For translation purposes, you will need at least one technical dictionary and one for business terminology. For grammar, you should have a grammar textbook, preferably one written only in Spanish, since it will be aimed at native speakers and will therefore give more precise information.
