Good evening everyone!

Premier Focus is currently beta-testing a new CAT tool. We are trying to add as many exciting and useful tools as we can think of, in order to assist translators and translation agencies in their daily work. We are considering to add several dictionaries to this tool. These dictionaries can either be dictionaries that could be purchased in a digital format or very comprehensive dictionaries that are available for free online.

We would be very grateful if you would share your best, most used dictionaries with us for your respective language pair. Please include dictionaries that you feel you and other translators can not work without and that have been extremely valuable and easy to use.

If you use dictionaries that you have purchased in a CD format, please give us the respective title, price and ordering information. If you are using online dictionaries, please send us the respective URLs. Paperback or hardcover dictionaries are not of interest to us – only dictionaries that can be bought on a CD or downloaded from online.

We would very much appreciate your assistance and thank you in advance for your responses!

Best regards,


Kerstin Kramer

Can you provide more information on the new CAT tool? In particular, will it run on Linux?

French/English dictionaries Sep 6, 2003

As a French/English translator of some 12 years' standing, I would say that the best general dictionaries for this pair (for UK English at any rate) are the Oxford Hachette French Ductionary and the Robert Collins French dictionary. I have no personal experience of the latter but the consensus is that it is excellent. I would certainly recommend the Oxford, especially as it is a brand new edition (August 2003), which is always a big plus. Both are available on CD-ROM. Details of Oxford Hachette available from www.oup.com. Price £38.25 excluding VAT. Do a Google search for the other one!

English>Portuguese Dictionary Sep 7, 2003

In my opinion the best English > Portuguese dictionary, not only in paper but also in CD is the Porto Editora one. It is available in the internet: http:/www.infopedia.pt but we need to pay a certain fee in order to have access to it.
