I would like some recommendations on good hard copy computer/ internet dictionaries/glossaries for both French and Portuguese to English. Thanks for any advice

harrap's bilingual software dictionary Jul 12, 2006

I bought this in March. I used to work with a regular hard-copy dictionary, and this one has been great. It goes much faster, and the terms, especially expressions, are far easier to find. I p lan to buy the Robert & Collins one as well (about 60 euros, I believe) as it will skip straight to the expression you're looking for. (I tested them both out at the Salon du livre here in Paris.)
Another favorite of mine is the Council of Law dictionary for law (don't know if it's online or on software though) and online, my all-time fave is eurodicautom, which I'm sure you know is the database for the European Commission (or some big institution like that).
: )
Best of luck!
