The dictionaries by Ernst. Supplementary information

Background to Ernst, Dictionary of Industrial Technology

The Ernst dictionary series from the 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 acutalized 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 is currently in its 8th edition and comprises 12 volumes. This is a rare exception in the publishing business, which is mostly related to the author and his publisher. The seriousness as a technical dictionary has managed to evolve further and further. Nowadays the editorship is done by Ernst Jr.. The experts 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.

The Ernst dictionary as a physical book

Today, the serial series in book form comprises just one metre of shelving. Each of the dictionaries guarantees that technical terms from the industrial environment are always up-to-date at the time of printing.

The Ernst, the technical dictionary in electronic edition

The first dictionaries in the form of CD vocabulary were published around 20 years ago. The industry has followed this example. The EDP partner of that time has grown steadily and now offers Ernst contents as content manager for Oscar Brandstetter Verlag and other dictionary publishers.

Corresponding operating system adjustments were carried out with each new edition of these e-dictionaries. However, the trend is towards downloading with license key activation. The latest version of the dictionary is stored centrally in one place.

The Ernst vocabulary combined with other dictionaries

On the basis of electronic dictionaries (e-dictionaries), all specialist dictionaries of the Ernst series can also be combined with other dictionaries from the content management manufacturer Acolada. The keyword is 'UniLex Pro'. This is the browser interface that combines and displays dictionaries at the same time. It makes sense to combine different technical dictionaries in one language or to combine different topics and focuses within one language. This allows the user to combine various technical, economic, legal and general terminology dictionaries.
