The "Birkh�user Dictionary of Human Biology" is one of the most
comprehensive German-English/English-German dictionaries on the
international market. More than 60.000 entries and subentries with
some 150.000 translations and an extent appendix with abbreviations,
terminologia anatomica and important figures provide users with an
excellent coverage of medical, biological and related bioscientific
areas. The dictionary excels through a harmonios synthesis of
biomedical and general bilingual dictionaries, making it the ideal
choice for users from both scientific and linguistic
fields.Furthermore the "Birkh�user Dictionary of Human Biology" is
marked by a first class linguistic and lexicographic treatment and
offers additional features, such as syllabification and
pronounciation, that help in achieving a very high user friendliness
and user satisfaction. Since 1989 the authors have built up the most
comprehensive medical and scientific bilingual database. Peter and
Christine Reuter, a physician and a translator by profession, lived
and worked in the United Kingdom for ten years, before moving to
Florida, USA. They have already published more than a dozen
dictionaries and CD-ROMs. Reviews of these dictionaries in German and
international journals have been outstanding ("Reuter/Reuter volumes
will prove indispensible for medical translators ..." Per N. Dohler,
American Translators Association, Chronicle) and it is certain that
the new "Birkh�user Dictionary of Human Biology" will be the standard
for all bilingual biomedical dictionaries.
