lang: EN, FR,DE,IT, ES - should all be able to be cross-referenced
kwd: huge number of technical fields, patent classifications, patents
src: D'Agostini - active in the patent businesscorrugated cardboard cmt: Contains what is presumably the entire WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) IPC classification in 5 languages, therefore covering a huge variety of technical subject matter - chemistry, physics, engineering, construction, etc. etc., although you may have to dig deep to find it.  Note that there are a number of typos on the entry page, which does not inspire total confidence in the accuracy of the rest of the site.

DE>DE, EN>EN Legal Glossary, Trademarks
lang: EN>EN, DE>DE
kwd: patents, trademarks, legal
cmt: If it were French, I'd suggest that you visit the WIPO/OHIM sites mentioned in the DPMA link and cross-reference the French and English pages, but I'm not sure how many of them will be in German - certainly it's not an official language for WIPO.  You might have more luck with OHIM, or the DPMA site, which I'd hope has English pages by now.

American trademarks and consumer products
Wer sich intensiv mit der amerikanischen Kultur beschäftigt, kann besonders bei Talkshows beobachten, daß ständig Namen von bekannten Produkten des US-Alltags auftauchen, mit denen der deutsche Zuschauer praktisch nichts anfangen kann. Markennamen wie "Weed Whacker", "The Club", "Slurpee", "Baked Lay´s", "Duct Tape", "Nerf Ball" oder auch Kurioses wie "Roto-Rooter" oder "SlimJim" können hierbei mir nichts, dir nichts in jedem zwanglosen Gespräch unter Amerikanern auftauchen. Traditionelle Wörtebücher helfen hier - außer bei einigen wenigen gebräuchlichen Markennamen - gewöhnlich nicht weiter. Dieses Glossar soll Übersetzern, Dolmetschern oder einfach jedem, der mit der amerikanischen Kultur zu tun hat, helfen, diese Wissenslücke zu schließen.
