Counter Wiley's English-German German-English Business Dictionary This easy-to-use bilingual dictionary contains 16,000 business terms that are essential to today's global marketplace. By focusing on the words and phrases most frequently used in international business dealings, Wiley's English-German, German-English Business Dictionary is more practical and accessible than a standard reference. To determine which words and phrases to include, the authors, native German speakers who have taught business German for more than twenty years, conducted a word frequency study at the American Graduate School of International Management (AGSIM). Their sources ranged from texts used in the teaching of international business to documents supplied by AGSIM alumni currently working in international business management, and the materials were divided into five categories: international economics, international banking and finance, international management, international marketing, and international accounting and statistics. American sources provided the English text samples so that German terminology would be translated into American, rather than British, English. Two separate data banks--one English, one German--were then compiled to measure frequency of usage, and two criteria were established to select appropriate business terms: (1) words describing a concept, practice, procedure, or activity associated with the conduct of business; and (2) words that are mainly used in a general context but have a secondary meaning--and occur frequently--in business contexts. After translating both the English and the German, the authors combined their extensive lists into this unique dictionary. The result is an authoritative compendium of the words and phrases most important for today's businesspeople to understand. The most complete, accessible, and up-to-date German business dictionary available. Compiled by native German speakers who have taught business German for more than twenty years, this unique bilingual dictionary is an invaluable tool for business success. Authoritative and easy to use, it contains: 16,000 English-German, German-English business words and phrases Essential terms used in all aspects of international business--economics, banking and finance, management, marketing, accounting, and statistics Quick access to the terms now required for doing business internationally Clear, concise translations that make it easy to absorb new words and phrases, and to use them with complete confidence Ein vollständiges, leicht zugängliches undaktuelles englisch-deutsch, deutsch-englisches Wörterbuch der Wirtschaft.
