German import/export vocab

I'm beginning a German role in an import/export position. Need to brush up German and get a handle on the specialised vocab needed. Any recommended resources?

I know that the Goethe Institut has a business German class. While that doesn't specifically pertain to the inport/export business, it might deal with a few of the concept/vocabulary involved because a lot of the people needing to learn it may be involved with import/export. If you are not able to get to Düsseldorf or Freiburg to take advantage of this, perhaps you can ask them if they know of any Geothe-certified course givers in your area or perhaps you can get your hands on some of the materials used in the courses. Perhaps thay can give you some tips for your specific field as well.

There are also a few books at Amazon for business German skills.

The German translation forum at WordReference might be of help. Also, check out the Proz specialized glossaries: German to English, English to German.
