I have found a dictionary about Mathematics; however, it goes from Chinese to English. I have tried different bookstores in my city, but they don't have an English to Chinese dictionary.

I have looked on 淘宝, but I'd like to find something of good/great quality, as I don't really trust the reviews that I have seen on there.

  • Maoyiyi, and everyone, I reopened this because someone else asked for the same thing. And I think it'd be ok to add this to the Chinese Resources question.

What you have is 汉英数学词典 and what you are looking for is 英汉数学词典. If you google 英汉数学词典, you can find a few sources for downloading. You can also search book-selling websites, and you will get a few choices.

  • do you know of any good math (college level) websites in Chinese?

An excellent way to translate technical vocabulary:

  1. Find the term in English on Wikipedia.

  2. Go to the "Languages" list in the left sidebar and find 中文

Not all articles have a Chinese translation (and sometimes they do, but they're not properly linked together), but when they do, it's a very reliable way to translate technical terms.
