From time to time I translate legal documents from German into English or English into German. Usually I rely on my one and only "Rechtsenglisch" dictionary, but more often than not I can't find exactly what I'm looking for. That's when the terminology database of the German Bundestag come in handy. It offers political, legal, and scientific translations for from German into English, French, and the other way around. Once you are on the main page select in the upper right corner the language combination and continue on the following page with an entry of the search term. The search screen appears rudimentary but once I tried it I was surprised by the depth of it.
