Editorial Reviews

Review

This dictionary offers an immediate answer to the increasing demand for Japanese/Engilsh, English/Japanese technical reference materials. The most comprehensive glossary of its kind currently in print, Ferber's dictionary should be useful for both novice and sophisticated readers of Japanese technical literature.

The format of this book is excellent. Words are easy to look up and everything is referenced nicely. However, the choice of words were not quite what I expected from the title. I think the book was a little heavy on the data-processing and hardware terms. If you are looking for a dictionary to help you read Japanese software documentation or use Japanese software. However, I feel that this book would be a useful addition to any technical translators library.

Unfortunately this is quite an old dictionary, and there are few Japanese-English "computer dictionaries" out there at all.

First, be forewarned! There is no Internet or World Wide Web terminology here! This book predates the Web and at the time it was written, the Internet was still an experiment used by a few organizations. You won't find terms like "email", "web page", "browser" -- the words *most* people are probably looking for.

However, if you are in a technical field, this book is extremely thorough regarding computers, software, and technology up to its time, so if you plan on communicating in detail with Japanese engineers and business people regarding data processing, computers, engineering, etc., this book is excellent. It gets so high-tech here that some of the terms, I didn't even know about them or what they meant in *English* before I read this book!

Yes, I would even recommend "reading" this book over a period of time.

The font and format are excellent, and the paper and binding are top-quality, making it much easier on the eyes than the average dictionary. Unlike other language dictionaries, it does not present a multitude of possible related meanings...but that is how it manages to squeeze so many entries (terms) in the book while keeping enough whitespace to ease the reading.

I just wish the publishers made an "addendum" to this book to bring it into the 21st century (email, web browsing, modern OSes, etc., consumer-type software terms). It royally stinks that I have to live with an old dictionary (and use my own version of "Janglish" with my Japanese friends), because I cannot justify $150-250 for one of the only 2 new Computer-Internet dictionaries that are out there!

I needed this book for some work I was doing. I was so happy to get it for the price I did, about 80% off. It doesn not get too much better than that.
