I wonder does anybody know of a GOOD online Portuguese Portuguese dictionary please.

I use the Houaiss paper one, but it would be nice to have access to a good online one as well. I believe the Aurélio is available online to UOL subscribers, but unfortunately I am not a UOL subscriber.

Thank you in advance,

Colin.

Colin, if you're in Brazil, wander over to the nearest good bookstore and, if it's still published, buy the Dicionário Novo Aurélio da Língua Portuguesa Século XXI with CD-ROM. It's the large tome with a CD-ROM inside. I did that in Fortaleza in 2000 and continue to use the CD-ROM all the time. The version with CD-ROM costs maybe $50 U.S. more, but it's well worth it. My software even came with its own spell-checker that you can run with Microsoft Word (although if you're in Brazil I assume your version of Word already has spell-checking in Portuguese). Good luck.

Aurélio XXI Mar 19, 2006

I use the CD-ROM version for Aurélio XXI. It's pretty good and easy to use, very thorough also, but I can't hardly wait to get a paper version of either Aurélio or Houaiss so I can finally use it during the ATA test.

As far as online options, I unfortunately cannot refer you to any good sources. I sometimes use Priberam's, for curiosity only, not professional purposes, since I translate into Brazilian.

I have to say that there's a lot more linguistic content out there for Spanish than Portuguese. But there's always a possibility I'm looking in the wrong places, so I'll just keep an eye on this thread.

Good luck!

Porto editora Mar 19, 2006

I find this online dictionary excellent: http://www.infopedia.pt/

It is the site for Porto editora (which I have the hard-back of also)

The site offers you a free trial. However, if you are feeling naughty, you can keep renewing your subscription by changing log in names... I did that for a while, but was so happy with the service that I purchased the yearly subscription.

PS Needless to say, it also offers bi-lingual searches
