Reference: Sources of terms for sailing/maritime gear

Reference information:
There is a good choice of bilingual dictionaries available for translators who are unfamiliar with nautical terms, but it is often worthwhile to visit the bilingual sites of suppliers of deck gear etc.
In the present case, Harken and Goïot supply travellers/cars (both terms can be used) and have detailed EN and FR catalogues.
More generally, sites such as Plastimo (http://www.plastimo.com) have a wide range of equipment and are a useful source of terms/descriptions in both languages.
It can be a useful exercise to d/load the EN and FR versions of relevant pages and align them using Trados ....
