The Galician Shipbuilding Dictionary

Although not in english, this is a boating related collaborative project that have just seen the light. I want to share and promote it.

http://dicionarionavalgalego.ingenierosnavales.com/

It is a " Galician Shipbuilding Dictionary" written in the Galician language (of course), and including translations to spanish, portuguese and english.

The Dictionary has a Creative Commons licence and can be freely downloaded from:
http://dicionarionavalgalego.ingenie...nario/?lang=gl

It is posssible to make contributions to the Dictionary by using the form at:
http://dicionarionavalgalego.ingenie...denos/?lang=gl

As the Chairman of the Galician Branch of the Naval Architects and Marine Engineers Spanish Institutions (COIN and AINE), I promoted & coordinated the dictionary. I have also collaborated with the technical checking.

I hope it will contribute to broaden the use of the Galician language among the boat and shipbuilding professionals and aficionados, as well as serve as a tool for all those interested in this language of Kings-poets and the maritime culture.

Cheers.

Congratulation Guillermo. I unfortunatly do not speak the Galician, my boatyard and office was in the Cataluna part of Spain, close to Barcelona.
With great shame, I didn't know that the Galician was a modern language still in use. I apologize for my ignorance. Fortunatly, reading your post I learn a valuable lesson.
Cheers
Daniel

Thanks, Guillermo. I always look for new ways to learn new words, especially in Spanish or dialects of it, in order to better communicate with various Spanish speaking people in my area.
I will download this Galician// Dictionary and spend time broadening my knowledge.
Muito obrigado!
Sorry, no inverted exclamation marks on my keyboard.

It reminds me of being a kid and working as an apprentice to a gallego shipwright, Manolo.

When the computer crashed, this dictionary was one of the data files lost. Now I am grateful I could recover it. As for the meds I think it was another's undoing.
