Rating: 4 out of 5 stars - Data Dump
I use my Spanish language skills on occasion at work, and I have found this book's wealth of words and phrases to be useful. Spanish words and phrases are set forth with their English translation, most of the time with Spanish/English sample sentences. However, organization and perspective are lacking. There are 27 thematic topics and various subtopics in each topic. These topics and subtopics and the words or phrases themselves are not alphabetized. There are no insights, commentary, or tables. I give this book 4 stars (barely) because I am an information hound and because there is at least an index, although Spanish to English only. However, people who want more organization, explanation, and creative helpfulness may not find it as palatable as they would like.


Rating: 3 out of 5 stars - Boring layout, more dictionary-like than anything
Very thorough as far as words used in various business types, but very straightforward (boring). Not enough real life examples for my liking. Any more cut and dry and it would be a dictionary. Blah. I'll use it for reference than as a study guide as I had intended.


Rating: 2 out of 5 stars - Only has 3,500 entries, and is over 10 years old.
I am a business translator, and have bought every English-Spanish dictionary published for almost 25 years now. This dictionary has only 3,500 entries, and was translated in 1997 from a 1995 German book. Hence, the book is not current, is very limited in scope, and worse of all, not even oriented towards English or Spanish.

I gave it two stars because its sample sentences may be helpful for beginners. This book will be of no use to anyone of an intermediate of advanced level in either language. It is completely inadequate for business translators.

I recommend your buying one or both of the following: Webster's New World English-Spanish/Spanish-English Business Dictionary, or The Oxford Spanish Business Dictionary. If you only need one, then buy Webster's New World English-Spanish/Spanish-English Business Dictionary. Do not buy Mastering Spanish Business Vocabulary : A Thematic Approach, unless you are aware of and accept these limitations.


Rating: 4 out of 5 stars - Thematic Approach helps you master one thing at a time
This book is very helpful. I read it before studying marketing for a year in Mexico. It helped me get a grasp on the vocabulary in my classes.

Later I was offered a job because I spoke Spanish and knew about business. This book helped forge the foundation of an international business career.

Currently I manage an import/export business in Monterrey, Mexico. This book has been extremely helpful.

I highly reccomended this book to a professor at the University of Tennessee for required reading use in his classes. (Spanish for Business)


Rating: 4 out of 5 stars - Very Helpful
This book has proven very benificial to me. I am in the process of moving to South America with my employer. I am a Human Resource Manager and this book has helped me greatly with my spanish buisness vocabulary. Another book that I have found to be even more indispensable for me and a definite "5" star is the book "Spanish for Human Resources Managers."
