This is linked to my other question there: https://japanese.stackexchange.com/questions/62852/meaning-of-鑑定士-in-english-or-french
I'm trying to translate the word Japanese word "Kanteishi" in English.
The person I have in mind is the one that this an expert about a type of goods (e.g. brand bags, diamonds, luxury watches), and is able to recognize and value them. He often use his knowledge in pawn shops or in auctions of such goods.
The term "appraiser" seems close enough, but I have the feeling it has a different nuance.
** EDIT **
I was afraid that appraiser is a kind of obsolete words, but it looks it isn't.
Does it designate a person that owns a very specific diploma, such as lawyers, or is it a broader term? I'm looking for a broad term.
