Product Description
A business dictionary for the 21st century. Includes modern banking, accounting, insurance, real estate, import-export, taxes, business law, and hundreds of new computer and Internet terms. Also includes business terms of international organizations such as the United Nations, World Bank, and IMF. Variations on terms are designated under each entry by country .

From the Publisher
Doing business in Spanish requires a dictionary that is up-to-date with the 21st century. Because terminology differs from Spain to Latin America, from Argentina to Mexico, businesspeople need a dictionary that provides terms used throughout the Spanish-Speaking world.

The Spanish Business Dictionary fulfills such a need. In addition to hundreds of new computer and internet terms, this dictionary includes all areas of business terminology used in the United States and throughout the Spanish-speaking world with designators for the country of the term's origin.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars - The only multicultural Spanish business dictionary available
Business terms vary from Spain to Latin America, and within Latin America. This dictionary provides the variant business terms for the leading Spanish-speaking trading countries, which makes it one of a kind.
It also provides the latest computer terms used in business, an indispensable feature for today's business. Highly useful.


Rating: 2 out of 5 stars - This new edition is as disappointing as the last one.
I am a business translator that has bought every bilingual English-Spanish dictionary for almost 25 years now. Some have been adequate, some great, and some very bad.

This dictionary is not very useful for the following reasons: even though it was recently published, it lacks most of the current terms I have looked up. In addition, it has a much smaller number of terms than competing dictionaries. But the worst part is that the translations it has are not really that accurate. This can lead to misunderstandings, problems, lost business relationships, and is simply not acceptable.

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 Spanish Business Dictionary : Multicultural Business Spanish.

I gave this dictionary two stars because I really don't like giving one star ratings.


Rating: 5 out of 5 stars - Good for international business
I found this multicultural Spanish business dictionary extremely useful for doing business in Latin America. Spanish business terms can vary from country to country, and this is to my knowledge the first dictionary of its kind that addresses this issue which is critical in the global market.


Rating: 5 out of 5 stars - Long-Felt Need
Having been aware for many years of the difficulties of finding the right business term in Spanish ranging from Spain to Mexico to Argentina and other Spanish-speaking countries, as well as the problems of matching English-language business terms-based on the economic and cultural realities of the United States and other English-speaking countries-with proper equivalents in the Hispanic world, I find this dictionary to be an excellent first step in what ought to be an ongoing process of facilitating commerce among the two cultures and their subcultures by improving communications in ways that allow Spanish to keep its own cultural character and English to act as a partner rather than a dominating player in a better interaction in the global market to the benefit of all the countries involved.


Rating: 5 out of 5 stars - Only Dictionary Available for Multicultural Business Spanish
Dana McDougald writes in the March 2003 issue of The American Reference Book Annual:
"Everyday Spanish words vary from country to country, even in the business world. This dictionary compiles business terminology that varies throughout the Spanish-speaking world. Included are terms used in banking, insurance, real estate, computers, business terms of international organizations, and more. The first part of the dictionary provides English source words, in bold print, that are set apart from the definitions on a separate line. The next line following the English terms begins with the most common Spanish equivalents(s), followed by country-specific terms. A country designator, set in parentheses, precedes each Spanish term. In cases where there is not a spanish equivalent term, a Spanish definition is provided. Definitions are also added in cases where a more clear understanding of the terms may be needed. Part 2 of the dictionary provides Spanish terms with English equivalents.

Printed on good-quality paper, the dictionary features generous margins, easy-to-read print size, and guide words at the top of each page. Corporations that do business with Spanish-speaking countries as well as public and academic libraries will find this a useful reference tool."
