Over 350 million people worldwide speak Spanish. A growing number of research and industrial chemistry projects are being conducted undertaken in association with Spanish-speaking countries and the often complex chemical terminologies can pose a serious problem to these projects. In North America, the free trade agreement has opened up Mexico to the chemical industry and in the future, as South America continues to develop, the audience for an accurate, comprehensive, and current chemical translation dictionary will only grow. Written by a best-selling Wiley author with considerable expertise in technical translations and who has taught chemistry in Spanish speaking territories, this work is ideal for those who wish to increase their interaction with the international chemical community.
