Summary

A nonpareil reference for translators, completely revised to incorporate the major technological innovations that have occurred in the field of shipping during recent years. The 13,462 English/American terms are listed with their equivalents in French, Spanish, Dutch, and German. The following areas are covered: types of sea-going vessels, equipment aboard, seamanship, navigational aids, sea-going staff, beaconing, shipping techniques, goods handling, insurance and trading, yachting and racing, calls and commands, and weather and sea conditions. Not only are the newest ship types and handling techniques included, but also traditional nautical terms under sail and yachting. International organizations are also covered, as are the abbreviations found on charts and in shipping documents. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
