Mining: Click for a larger image of a placer mine owned by my father, Jim Phillips, in the early 1990s. That's a morning's yield--about $200 worth of Brazilian gold. Since then I have translated a significant fraction of all the mining legislation--particularly environmental and safety regulations--passed by Brazil's Congress. From dust abatement through blasting vibrations and water quality, I have the form, content and meaning at my fingertips.
And where will a translator find the specific terminology used by engineers, vendors, transporters and manufacturers?   There is no published mining industry glossary (in book format) for English and Portuguese. In order to keep on schedule with a large-scale bidding process, a technical translator must have customized glossaries prepared in advance--before the deadline starts ticking away.
