The present study is intended to address the various aspects related to the use of dictionaries as an essential part of both a technical translator’s work and of a specialist’s research activities. After comparing different types of technical dictionaries available for these professional categories, the study offers several suggestions for improving the quality of these indispensable linguistic instruments (dictionaries and glossaries) and for encouraging lexicographers to invest energy in creating better and well-conceived specialized technical dictionaries and glossaries which today’s specialists dearly need.
