Hi,
I apologize for the somewhat repetitive nature of this topic, but I'm looking for a dictionary Port>Eng, CD rom preferred. I've found good resources on the internet, but am taking a trip back to the states and wanted to purchase a CD rom or dictionary there. Anyone know a good foreign language bookstore in NY, or a good web site?
Thanks,
Lauren Hermele

Porto Editora Aug 8, 2003

If you use European Portuguese, «Porto Editora» is the best dictionary in CD (Port-Eng or Eng-Port).
You can purchase it by Internet: www.portoeditora.pt

site and store Aug 8, 2003

Hi Lauren,

A good website for translation dictionaries in the U.S. is i.b.d. ltd. at ibdltd.com. Freek Lankhof's main business is selling to translators.

I'm not sure if they carry Portuguese books or not, but a good place for Spanish books in NYC is Lectorum (think it's on 14th Street).

Stay away from Rockefeller Center... the French American (if that's what it's called) bookstore there carries lots of languages, but prices are absurd.

One of my translation students didn't follow my advice and bought a dictionary there for over $100, when Freek was charging $30 for the very same edition.

Have in NYC (I love New York - worked there for 20 years and still visit several times a month).

Just noticed you are in Spain... Aug 8, 2003

Hola,

Where are you based? If you are in Barcelona, Catalunya, you might want to try Alibri.

Aquest es situa al carrer Balmes (esq. Gran Vía).

Records,

JL

Portuguese > English dictionary Aug 10, 2003

I suggest the following dictionary on a CD-ROM
It is not very expensive and can be integrated into MSword if you want. The version that I am presently using was given away free by the IP UOL, on the CD-ROM they send to you in the mail to entice you to sign up for their service. It gives
Português - Espanhol, Português - Inglês, Inglês - Português, Espanhol - Português dictionaries and a verb conjugator in Português.

I also have the DIC MICHAELIS 2 IDIOMAS, but I used windows 95 when I bought it and now have to get the updates for windows 2000 so I can re-install it. The only thing I miss on not using it is the 'dicionário de sinônimos, antônimos e parônimos da língua portuguesa, e dicionário de informática e termos executivos'

DIC MICHAELIS 2 IDIOMAS
O mais pratico e completo dicionário para Inglês/Português e Português/Inglês do mercado. Inclui dicionário de sinônimos, antônimos e parônimos da língua portuguesa, e dicionário de informática e termos executivos.
Traz Conjugador Verbal para a língua portuguesa e oferece o recurso de pesquisa simultânea e pesquisa contextual nos principais subdicionários.
Interface nos idiomas: Português, Inglês e Espanhol
