English/Afrikaans - Afrikaans/English Dictionary of Space Terminology, Published 2011. 230 pages. This dictionary is the first IAA multilingual dictionary of space terminology for an African language and contains translations for over 3500 terms in common use in the space industry. The publication of an Afrikaans Space Dictionary is a natural consequence of the maturity of South Africa as a space-faring nation. The editorial team preparing this book was South African. The words contained in this book were extracted from a large database of terms translated by a large group of international specialists to 20 languages. The work was validated and sponsored by the main concerned space agencies in the world. This homogenous system of terms is covering various fields of astronautics like space science, technology, medicine, law etc. General and common terms have been ignored. This book is intended to help the work of decision-makers, scientists, engineers, commercial and experts in charge of contracts, translators and librarians. The South African Space Agency and the South African Astronomical Observatory sponsored the initial data base work and the publication of the book. Terminology is a key issue for developing international cooperation and for a better understanding among people using various language. 55€ shipping included.
