LID Nougat Dictionary

The LID Nougat Dictionary is a terminological dictionary containing more than 500 alphabetically ordered entries, with Spanish as the starting point and basis for describing the terminology of the nougat industry. Nougat is one of the oldest and most traditional sweets in our country. Hence the need for a work that defines the terms used in this field.

The inclusion of equivalents in Catalan, English, Russian, Mandarin and Arabic make this work an effective multilingual tool for translation and for facilitating commercial and cultural exchanges, providing a documented and exhaustive explanation of both the product – turron in its different varieties and current forms of commercial presentation – and the production process used to obtain it. Many of the terms refer to concepts involving the raw materials; for example, the almond, an essential element for obtaining nougat, described in its different varieties. The nutritional and organoleptic properties of the raw materials are another of the conceptual subdomains taken into account. The LID Nougat Dictionary is a pioneering initiative that deals in detail with the different existing nougat products, their production processes, raw materials and machinery used, as well as the professionals involved in this industry.

The aim of this compilation of terms is to fill the gap that currently exists in an area of knowledge that is an important hallmark of Spain’s identity. The aim of the work is to respond to the terminological needs of this field, to lay the foundations of these concepts and to provide the equivalents in the languages of the main foreign markets to which the nougat industry exports. This reference work is a very useful tool for manufacturers, distributors, translators and all those professionals related to the nougat sector.
