How can the English/French Nucleus help me?

The English French Nucleus is a technical dictionary with Thesaurus and lots of examples.

Have you ever wanted to know what circumstance beyond our control or armour plated side is in French?
Did you ever encountered terms as ARMA, or IACS, AWD-OD - all wheel drive on demand ? or idioms as by opening the media package, you accept these terms...?
Have you seen French terms as cavalier intérieur de réglage? or expressions as compte débiteur de comptabilité commerciale? what does SEM mean in French? or what is INS?
Have you ever needed to be assisted during a technical translation?

The English French Nucleus is a bi-directional database. It will give you the answers. It is a very comprehensive English/French terminology glossary. I created this database day after day, year after year since 1990. I constantly update, maintain, and extend it.

After installation of the executable and of the Nucleus File System on your machine, search for the following examples, or as many other as you want, you will notice that the Nucleus is a great source of information and can really support you when you create your own databases.

Each record of the Nucleus is composed of three fields of information:
the English field, the general information field as gender, tense..., and the French field.
