Question:

Is there anybody I can ask ashkenazi words brought down in commentators of shulhan aruj etc & they are written in Hebrew e.g. The word שווי״ג brought down by one of the commentators of ש״ע יו״ד ס׳קטו סק״ב it seems to be a place or something to do with the making of cheese

Answer:

There are two seforim written to translate the French words found in Rashi in Tanach and gemorah. One is called La’azei Rashi B’tanach, by a Yosef Elchonon Greenberg, and Otzar La’azei Rashi by a Moshe Katan, on Tanach and gemora. Unfortunately both of these seforim are not specifically on the Shulchan Aruch. Otherwise maybe try a French– English Dictionary, or some other means of translating from French.
