Dear colleagues,

I'm thinking of buying the Collins Robert, as a colleague just recommended it.
http://www.amazon.fr/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0000YG8M0/qid=1098814242/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_8_1/402-4920215-8888914

However, on browsing through amazon.fr, I also found this dictionary, which also seems to have been mentioned in the proz forums.
http://www.amazon.fr/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0000DBA53/qid=1098813991/ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i1_xgl/402-4920215-8888914

I'd like a dictionary that is as comprehensive as possible and, considering that both of them are under 100 EURO, they're pretty reasonably priced.

Unfortunately, I've only got a recommendation for the first dictionary and don't really know what the difference is between this one and the second link - Does anyone have any recommendations. I suspect, based on the price, that the second one is more comprehensive, but I'd kind of like some confirmation on that ...

Thanks in advance,

Sarah Downing

Robert-Collins Dictionary Oct 26, 2004

The Robert-Collins are good dictionaries. The English part is based on the Bank of English corpus. You'll want the most comprehensive one. Based on the cost and the name I think it is probably this one.

I hope this helps.

Sarah,

Désolée d'écrire en fr., mais je suis trop fatiguée pour écrire en anglais.

J'ai la version papier du Robert-Collins qui n'est pas mal pour le language général, mais je le trouve si encombrant que je ne m'en sers presque jamais.

Merci Geneviève pour ces sites très précieux ! Oct 27, 2004

Je connaissais l'Eurodicautom et le GDT mais pas les deux autres qui sont très pratiques.
