I think a lot of forum users like me share the same problem: their native language is not english.
So we often stumble when searching the right word for something.
A BIG help to me is this site:
It features translation from:
- german <> english
- german <> french
- german <> spanish
- german <> italian
- german <> chinese
- german <> russian
...really helpful ! And it is free for everybody !
...and it is so much easier than to take my dusty old fat translation books / dictionarys out of the drawer...
