Dictionary of Technical Terms

(Technisch E-N en N-E Woordenboek)

This dictionary consists of a collection of English and Dutch terms used in Computer Aided Technologies such as CAD, CAM, CAE, as well as Logistics and Information Technology in general. The author's work on composing the sections of a Dutch Lexicon on Information Technology and consisting of Industrial Automation, Artificial Intelligence, Computer Graphics, Logistics, Communication, Electronics and Software Engineering also served as a vehicle in assembling a large amount of words and technological phrases in both languages.

The translations from English to Dutch and vice versa can be retrieved by clicking the first letter of the word. They appear in a bold face font, while the translations are represented in italics. In case the acronyms of both the English and Dutch phrases are known, they will appear after a colon in respectively the English and Dutch text. Where more than one translation of an English word or phrase exists, all known Dutch translations are mentioned. In the case of multiple choices one needs to consider the context in which they appear or the relevant engineering discipline.
