Has anyone found a free online Dutch-English dictionary? I find the online versions handier than a hard copy dictionary when I want to do a quick word check. For French-English and Spanish-English, I use www.WordReference.com, but I haven't found anything similar for Dutch-English. Any recommendations? TIA

Here's a couple... Apr 22, 2006

I've used these:

http://www-old.ectaco.com/online/diction.php3?refid=2579〈=23

Both can reverse from EN - NL to NL - EN.

I don't know how accurate they are, though, because Dutch is not one of my languages. I only use them when I chat with a Dutch friend and want to "impress" him with a few words

Good luck!

P.S.: Ok, I said "a couple", but I found more among my Favorites:

Websters might be a good one, but only the text box works, the index doesn't:

Next to that, you get often more source languages. The Dutch word huis, for instance, feels at home in more languages:

Language Expression English Translation or Definition
Afrikaans huis house.
Dutch huis house, family.
Flemish huis house.
French huis door.
Frisian huis house.

Some time ago, I posted some links on the Dutch forum:

You might want to check this site and add some of the links to your Favorites.


Next to that, due to the affinity between the Germanic languages the German-English-German (German-French-German as well) very often offers a solution for Dutch-English terminology questions, especially for words you don't find in any dictionary.

By the way, most Dutch-English dictionaries are available on CD-ROM.
I also love electronic dicos above paper ones
