'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-Streams
