I recently came across a reference to New Comprehensive Russian-English Dictionary (by D.I. Ermolovich and T.M. Krasavina, Moscow, Russky Yazyk Media, 2004). Has anyone seen it?

The R-E dictionary I currently have is Taube, Litvinova et al. 1987 (Russky Yazyk) which I quite like. Any recommendations? (don't bother to mention the Oxford ER/RE Dictionary) which I think is rather poor.

I otherwise use Ozhegov, of which the latest edition seems to be 2000.

Apologies if I have missed any posts. I am only an occasional reader of Russian and am not up to date with the latest resources.

Hi Barry Aug 11, 2005

I think that the most popular EnRu dictionaries are ABBYY Lingvo (the most recent version is 10) and Multilex (the newest version is 5):

The distributors of ABBYY software in UK:

The distributors of Multilex (unfortunately, no distributors in the UK):

Personally, I find Multitran to be superior to both Abbyy Lingvo and Multilex. It's true that Multitran is a compendium of sometimes unverified translator-submitted entries, but that makes for the most current and comprehensive resource of all terminology banks in Eng-Rus pair. And with a little translating common sense and internet-based references one can easily detect and avoid flops which Multitran sometimes proffers.

I find very usefull dictionaries on-line such as Yandex, Rambler.
Sometimes search via Google in the advanced seach+ Russian language can navigate you too.
Hope this helps.
