    Pipe organ construction

    I'm looking for a German/English speaking expert on organs and their construction to help with the terminology of a book I'm translating from German into English. It concerns the prototype of a new kind of "expressive" organ.

    Is there anyone out there who might be able to help?

    If so, please send me an email to: stringer.margot@wanadoo.fr

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Hello and welcome Magrot

    Might I suggest you post your questions in the pipe organ forum here as well, seeing as how they`re pipe organ-related? You might get more responses from organists there.

    welcome to Magle International Music Forums, Magrot!

    I hope to see you around. As rojo mentioned this post really belongs in the pipe organ forum, so I'm moving it there.

    Kind regards
    Frederik

    Organ Dictionary

    You might want to consider adding Wilfried Praet's Organ Dictionary to your library. It's a very extensive multi-language dictionary for the translation of organ terms.

    Messy website, but it's all there.

    Seconded: Praet's dictionary is a must for every serious organ translator.
