The English-Russian dictionary of technical abbreviations contains nearly 65,000 entries covering various fields and subfields of engineering and technology. Abbreviations are widely used in technical literature and, as a rule, they create difficulties for the reader. Numerous abbreviations are used in technical literature dealing with space, agriculture, electronics, computer science, chemistry, thermodynamics, nuclear engineering, refrigeration, cryogenics, machinery, aviation, business, accounting, optics, radio electronics, and military fields, including abbreviations used on a wide scale by the Navy, Airforce and the Army. In many instances the same abbreviation is used in most different fields of engineering and technology though depicting different notions. There are cases when the same abbreviation may have dozen of meanings, depending on the specific field of engineering. The entries are arranged in alphabetical order. A wide range of literature has been explored for the selection and translation of the abbreviations. The dictionary has been compiled by comparing parallel texts in both languages, and by consultation with experts. This publication will be invaluable to the personnel of designing bureaus and research institutions, and also to translators, scientists, researchers, designers and university personnel dealing with various fields of engineering and technology. approx. 125,000 terms

Elsevier s Dictionary of Cybernyms

This dictionary was produced in response to the rapidly increasing amount of quasi-industrial jargon in the field of information technology, compounded by the fact that these somewhat esoteric terms are often further reduced to acronyms and abbreviations that are seldom explained. Even when they are defined, individual interpretations continue to diverge. Until now the codes have been reproduced in separate (language) publications: there is no universal listing in alphabetical order that covers the English, French, Spanish and German languages. This dictionary sets out the English, French, Spanish and German alternatives as a single, merge-sorted whole. Today, most of the codes have passed into the public domain, simply because they exist in most of the telecommunications systems installed throughout the developed (and developing) world and are largely known to most of those who work in that particular area. However, foreign variants often defy even the most astute observer. This dictionary seeks to clarify this bewildering situation as much as possible. The 26,000 definitions set out here, drawn from some 16,000 individual cybernyms, cover computing, electronics, telecommunications (including intelligent networks and mobile telephony), together with satellite technology and Internet/Web terminology. Annex I lists some of the innumerable file types found in the filing systems of computers using powerful desktop managers and Annex II lists the abbreviations of country names found in universal resource locators (URL). Elsevier's Dictionary of Cybernyms is a useful tool for translators, students, universities and computer enthusiasts.

This dictionary provides comprehensive coverage of the terminology of noise and noise control thus filling a major communications gap among health and safety professionals, labour and management representatives, scientists, and engineers who must deal with this growing environmental problem. Users of this dictionary will find a large number of key concepts in diverse disciplines such as the physiology of the ear, audiometry, acoustics, sound level measurements, architecture, noise standards, urban planning, industrial safety, building and construction. It includes many useful features, namely definitions, synonyms and spelling variants, bibliographic sources, and extensive cross-referencing of keywords, as well as a separate listing of acronyms and abbreviations, and French and German indexes. The major value of this dictionary is thus twofold. As a dictionary it contains features that language specialists have come to expect: definitions and bibliographic sources. As a technical dictionary it brings order and coherence to a seemingly chaotic multitude of terms and expressions from a broad spectrum of scientific, technical and medical disciplines.

Noting a marked lack of comprehensiveness and/or contemporaneity among typical reference works on chemical etymology, as well as a somewhat spotty coverage of chemical terms and their etymology in comprehensive dictionaries and textbooks the author decided to write an up-to-date desk reference on chemical etymology which would satisfy the needs of casual readers as well as those of more demanding users of etymological lore. Characteristic user-friendly features of the present work include avoidance of cumbersome abbreviations, avoidance of entries in foreign alphabets, and a broad coverage of all chemical disciplines including mineralogy. Biological, medical, geological, physical and mathematical terms are only considered where they appear of interest to mainstream chemists. This book does not provide definitions of terms (unless required in the etymological context) nor guidance as to the timeliness of different nomenclature systems. The typical user will from the outset be well aware of the exact meaning of the terms he or she focuses on and only require the etymological background to be used. Examples of sources which have been drawn upon in the preparation of this book, apart from the extremely useful Internet resource Google, are listed, but an exhausting enumeration would be tiresome and impractical.. * an up-to-date desk reference on chemical etymology * characteristic user-friendly features * broad coverage of all chemical disciplines

The reader will discover all the key concepts linked to optical, electron, phase-contrast, polarizing, and other types of microscopes, as well as many terms related to the preparation of specimens for examination under the microscope, including microtomy, staining, and fixation.Translators and terminologists will find in this dictionary such useful features as definitions, synonyms, cross references, and bibliographic sources, a separate listing of acronyms and abbreviations, and French and German indexes. As a multilingual tool, this dictionary contains features that language specialists have come to expect: definitions and bibliographic sources. As a technical work, it brings order and coherence to a multitude of terms and expressions from a broad spectrum of scientific and technical disciplines.
