Can people suggest

a) online bookstores having a wide variety of French dictionaries that can be purchased?


b) specifically, must-have hard-copy (or CDROM-based) specialized French dictionaries useful in a variety of fields (law, patents, information technology, finance etc.)

You may want to check the catalogues from "La maison du dictionnaire" at http://www.lmdd.com.

There is also Grant & Cutler (http://www.grantandcutler.com) which offers a wide collection of specialized dictonaries.


Thanks Doru for spotting the typo in the URL

Some recommendations Jul 4, 2003

I find the following very useful:
Technical: Ernst/Dictionnaire Général de la Technique Industrielle tome IX Français-Anglais. [this is expensive but worth the money, in my view]

Legal: Bridge/ The Council of Europe French-English Dictionary

IT: Ginguay/Dictionnaire d'informatique français/anglais

- all are available from Grant & Cutler.
