Hello everyone,

I would like to purchase just German English handheld dictionary. I have been researching on the internet but have only found dictionaries geared more for travelers than translators ("universal" translators, phrasebooks, etc).

I am looking for a handheld version of any popular German English dictionary, such as Langenscheidt, HarperCollins, PONS, Oxford). Does anyone own such a device (or another similar device)? Perhaps there is even a handheld dictionary geared for translators (i.e. with specialized dictionaries).

Thanks in advance for all of your help !

Some time ago I used to use Roadlingua on a Palm OS device to carry some of my large custom glossaries (other tools are supported, that just happens to be what I used). AbsoluteWord offers a number of DE/EN dictionaries for this platform:
