Books - enginner


I'm from Poland and I'm learning technical english. I'm an engineer of Civil engineering ang I search a books which I could have known a technical words and compare my knowledge in both countries. Could You tell me about popular books (for example: building manager guide)?

Other than I search a books in sanitary industry.

Sorry for my english.  

RE: Books - enginner


welcome to the site . . .  i will tell you that your English writing skills are good and easy to understand . . .  so, no apologies needed . . .

as far as books you seek, i suggest looking for international building code books such as those listed at this website:


remember, the building codes depend upon the jurisdiction having authority and they are not the same for every country.  so,the design criteria may be different.

as far as books or resources on technical words in the building industry, i suggest you use the online dictionaries and translators available.  access a site, enter the word in Polish, and translate to other languages you seek.

of course, you can also ask your question here and someone will likely provide you an answer . . .

I hope this helps you and good luck!!
