Translations of Film/Video terminology?

Hi!
I'm looking for a publication that would offer translations of film / video terminology between English and Spanish. A multi-language version, including German and French would even be better.

Call sheet - Orden - Dispo - Feuille de travail

Something like that.

Anyone? Thanks!

Dan.

Thanks Robert, I will check out the Madrid shop when I'm in town, but it's not down the road (400 miles).
Meanwhile I found the Diccionario de Cine y Video español-ingles (y vv) by Augusto García Fernández-Balbuena - ediciones Tayo (Madrid) in the local library.

But I'm trying to figure out a budget proposal from a lighting-rental company and there are tons of words that are not in the a.m. dictionary. It's probably old, since it sports "script-girl" as one of the lemmas.
Yes: it's from 1988.

Sadly, "script girl" is still the only understood term in some circles, especially in Europe (specifically France).
