Wiley's website states in the current and previous description of this dictionary:    
        "For over 30 years, this resource (previously The Simon & Schuster International Spanish Dictionary) has been widely recognized as the most respected Spanish-English dictionary, with greater authority than ever. For almost 25 years, Webster''s New World International Spanish Dictionary has been known and respected throughout the world as the most complete and up-to-date bilingual dictionary of the Spanish and English languages. Now reissued as Webster’s New World International Spanish—English Dictionary, it contains over 210,000 up-to-date entries covering the latest technical and scientific terminology and featuring a rich selection of idioms and slang from 21 Spanish and six English regional variants.
        To the rich base of over 200,000 entries have been added almost 10,000 new words and phrases that reflect changes in the political world, technology, business, and society. Every dictionary entry has been reviewed and many have been revised to reflect both classical and current usage in the written and spoken vocabulary. The result is a new bilingual dictionary that exceeds some unabridged monolingual dictionaries in the completeness of its entry selection and definitions. Here, in thousands of words, phrases, examples, and idioms is the diversity of history, literature, tradition, and temperament of two worlds. The most exact equivalents and definitions given in a bilingual dictionary. The latest technical and scientific terminology. The richest, most extensive treatment of idioms, colloquialisms, and slang.
        Comprehensive treatment of Latin-American, Iberian, North American, and British variants and regionalisms. Precise transposition of both languages, with thousands of usage examples from history and literature. Encyclopedic entries in the fields of history, politics, religion, mythology, science, technology, and the arts. Extensive coverage of notable people and places, including all countries and their capitals. Chemistry symbols, acronyms, and abbreviations.
        Outline of English and Spanish grammars, and a complete table of irregular Spanish verbs and their conjugation. English pronunciation in the universally recognized International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) in each entry, and a guide to Spanish pronunciation. Large, clear type on pages designed for maximum readability and ease in locating entries. Webster's New World International Spanish Dictionary is an indispensable reference for students, teachers, translators, interpreters, and professionals-a must for schools and libraries."

US $90.00

    The Wiley Dictionary of Civil Engineering and Construction: English-Spanish/Spanish-English offers the first bilingual update of civil engineering terminology in forty years. With more than 50,000 entries in each language, it provides comprehensive coverage of a broad range of industrial disciplines, including architecture, engineering, surveying, building, heavy construction, and municipal engineering.

    Entries include technical terms and phrases not found in any general translation dictionary—many of these are taken directly from The Contractor's Dictionary by L. F. Webster, official publications, engineering specifications, and engineering textbooks. Virtually all terms and their functions were supplied by working professionals and experts in each field. Each translation has been confirmed by teams of reviewers in the United States and Latin America to ensure accuracy and reflect a wide range of Spanish dialects. Since there is considerable overlap among engineering disciplines, many of the terms in this book are also applicable to electrical, mechanical, and structural engineering.

    The Wiley Dictionary of Civil Engineering and Construction: English-Spanish/Spanish-English is an indispensable resource for civil engineers and contractors, translating correspondence, specifications, and working drawings; marketers for engineering firms, preparing bids and proposals for international contracts; and engineering students, struggling to understand complex course textbooks in a foreign language. It is the only source for accurate, reliable, up-to-date translations of the entire spectrum of engineering and construction terminology.
