About the Author

H.E. Philippsborn


@qu:The book certainly deserves a place in technical libraries large and small, irrespective of the amount of Portuguese literature handled; it will also be a valuable addition to the armoury of the translator, both in Europe and South America. @source:The Year in Reference @qu:This work is the product of a specialist translator developed from his own experience, and that experience gives this work enormous added value. It will serve well in collections where either the subject and/or the languages covered are important factors. @source:Reference Reviews
