This is a guidebook to a foreign language. The language of Law uses mostly

English, but have technical definitions totally different from their ordinary uses.
Some mean several different things, depending on the area of law or business they
come from. The language of Law also contains more "leftovers" than most
languages. Hundreds of Latin, Old French, Old English and obsolete words are still
used in their original forms.

English usage & American English - English, grammar, style, rules, usage. A
practical and authoritative guide to contemporary English: With a detailed look at
grammar, style, diction, word formation, gender, social groups and scientific forms,
this valuable reference work is ideal for students, writers, academicians and
anybody concerned about proper writing style.
http://www.bartleby.com/64/
The plan for the second edition of the classic reference work The King's English
was dictated by the following considerations: (1) to pass by all rules, of whatever
absolute importance, that are shown by observation to be seldom or never broken;
and (2) to illustrate by living examples, with the name of a reputable authority
attached to each, all blunders that observation shows to be common.
http://www.bartleby.com/116/
Asserting that one must first know the rules to break them, this classic reference
book is a must-have for any student and conscientious writer. Intended for use in
which the practice of composition is combined with the study of literature, it gives in
brief space the principal requirements of plain English style and concentrates
attention on the rules of usage and principles of composition most commonly
violated.
http://www.bartleby.com/141/
This classic was written to clarify the discrepancies between British and American
English and to define the distinguishing characteristics of American English.
Mencken's groundbreaking study was undoubtedly the most scientific linguistic
work on the American language to date and continues to serve as a definitive
resource in the field.

which covers all countries and cultures between Mauritania in the west and Iran in
the east, Turkey in the north and Sudan in south. The Encyclopaedia contains
original material, what you read here is written for this publication, only. The
content is updated on a weekly basis, and as long as the world does not change to
quickly for our small staff, you will always find the freshest information here. The
Encyclopaedia of the Orient has articles, which aim at both the high school- level
and university- level student, who needs a good resource of reference material. It
will therefore never be the most comprehensive on all subjects, but it will hopefully
be able to help anyone to find just the right information he or she needs within few
minutes. North Africa and the Middle East are still far too unfairly treated in the
world press. This might not be a problem for an audience who knows the region
well already, but all too many get little information on this region beyond the media
image of wars and poverty."

Bookworm search - literature, literary, characters, books, plot points. [From the
Researchbuzz newsletter] "Wow, what an engine. Allreaders
( http://www.allreaders.com ) allows you to search for book information through
several different elements, including plot, main character, main adversary,
plotelements, etc. The site divides the books into several genres (literature, sci-fi,
romance, etc.). The site covers several authors but it's not comprehensive. You
can list the authors in each author or go straight to the search form. The search
form for the detailed search asks a number of questions about a book, including
plot points, etc. When you use the detailed
search form, a lot of your choices will cause the page to reload. Don't worry about
that. For example, you may choose an "animal story" plot point. Once you've
chosen that, the page will reload and give you more options (in this case, you'll be
able to specify what kind of animal.) You can answer as many or as few questions
as you like in the detailed search. The search results page will give you book
name, author name, and number of matches. Click on a book name and you'll be
taken to the book summary pages. The summary pages contain book review
summaries, and summary details (basically information about the book presented
in the same way as the detailed search form requests it.) The elements that match
your search are highlighted. At the bottom of the page are the top ten books in the
AllReaders search engine that match the summarized book's characteristics. I was
tickled to see that Atlas Shrugged was such a close match to Alice in Wonderland.
Who knew? The detailed search form will seem overwhelming at first, but it's worth
the time to play with it and see what you can get out of it. Maybe some new
reading recommendations. Worth a look."

the majority of the cases there is no equivalence in other languages and when

Mini-med school - "provide their students with information that aspiring doctors
typically learn during the first two years of medical school". It sounds like
something that might be useful for translators with a non medical background who
are interested in doing medical translation.
What is mini-med school?
Mini-med schools are public education programs now offered by more than 70
medical schools, universities, research institutions, and hospitals across the nation.
(Plus one each in Ireland and Malta!) The program is typically a lecture series that
meets once a week and provides "mini-med students" information on some of the
same subjects studied by "real" medical students. You need not have a science
background to attend. Some mini-med schools augment the lectures with
laboratory tours, hands-on demonstrations, videos, and more.

Film terms glossary EN>EN - film making, negative cutting, film production,
blimped camera, clapboard, insert shot, gaffer's tape, movie set jargon: "May be
printed out for personal use only. Printing and distribution as a course handout, for
sale, or for any other reason, without permission and acknowledgment is strictly
forbidden." Joel Schlemowitz, New School University Media Studies Department.
"Filmmaking is an art with a very complex, and in some ways confusing,
vocabulary of terms. To communicate with labs, negative cutters and with your
crew it is best to know the right term to use. The terms can often be used against
someone not familiar with them. An old story goes that a P.A. was asked to bring
over a “half-apple” and returned with a sliced-up piece of fruit. Use this glossary to
keep those who would try to intimidate you with the lingo from doing so, but
remember too, where you started from and do not use this glossary to become one
of those
intimidators."

commodity terms were developed. The preferred term will be the only term
