Transportation Dictionary

Language has always been a crucial part of life. The ability of humans to create and use complex language systems makes us to a unique species. However, if we do not speak the same language this can lead to a number of problems. This is most true when we speak with people who use words that we do not know, whether in private or in business. This is one of the reasons why the Austrian Research Agency for Roads, Railways and Transport has prepared a dictionary, which undoubtedly can be regarded as the most comprehensive German language dictionary of transportation terms. It is available as both a print book and e-book, and also provides a database supported search for terms leading to related fields via links.
