Ernst, Dictionary of Industrial Engineering - Additional information

The Ernst dictionary series from the publisher Oscar Brandstetter Verlag, Wiesbaden, has been providing important sources of vocabulary for translators, interpreters and technicians for decades. Prof. Dr. Richard Ernst was passionate about collecting terms and their meaning and thus created important word collections in the post-war years, which he was able to constantly expand with the help of translators in the industrial context. With Oscar Brandstetter Verlag, Dr. Ernst has found a reliable partner who has developed the series over decades.

Multiple languages - multiple dictionaries, a recurring structure
The systematic work in several languages led to renowned technical dictionaries in the important business languages German in combination with English, French, Spanish and Portuguese - later also in the combinations French / English and English / Spanish.

Always up-to-date in technical and linguistic terms
The Dictionary series comprises 12 volumes. This is a rare exception in the publishing business, which is mostly related to the author or publisher. The seriousness as a technical dictionary has managed to evolve further and further. Under the editorship of Ernst Jr. today, technical specialists in their mother tongue are active as lexicologists and experts. Here the gentlemen Dussart, Amm, Vollnhals, Kucera, Ernst jun. and others have excelled. The technical development of the last decades can be seen in the range of Ernst dictionaries. These have grown to an estimated threefold in size by the time they were last printed.
