Excerpt from Practical Dictionary of Electrical Engineering and Chemistry in German, English and Spanish, Vol. 2 of 3: Treating Especially of Modern Machine Industry, the Foundry and Metallurgy; English-Spanish-German
For these various reasons the authors have set themselves ... the arduous but gratifying task of publishing this german-english-spanish Dictionary, trusting that it will supply a decided want, and fulfil the requirements of every class.
Our Dictionary especially comprises such words and word combina tions which, although frequently used, are generally missing in works of a similar description. It will be seen that engineering, electrical and chemi cal terms, which are indispensable to the engineer, scientific or commercial man, have been most minutely treated, in addition to which special atten tion has been paid to practical terms for the construction of steam eu gines, machine tools, lifting and hoisting machinery, foundry, metallurgy (concentration of ores), smelting, tools &c.
We have paid special attention to 'fim'shed manufactures', that is to say to practical terms in every branch, rather than theoretical. In physics generally mechanics, electricity, hydraulics, mathematics and applied science we adhere strictly to the technical terms appertaining to every day practice. Considering, however, that the majority of the ordinary scientific expressions or denominations belong to theoretical nomenclature alone, and are of no use to the business man or commer ciel engineer who desires to export his manufactures or enter into busi ness relations with the countries in question, it would be super¿uous to repeat them in our book. These words or synonyms are amply provi ded in ordinary encyclopaedias or dictionaries, and are out of place in purely practical works like the one we have compiled.
