I am a Masters student in Translation Studies and I am currently doing some research into online dictionary facilities that translators make use of in day-to-day translation. I am particularly interested in dictionaries, thesauri etc. relating to English, German or a combination of these (such as Leo.de), as well as any multilingual resources (wordreference.com, for example) you find useful or would recommend in particular.

German <-> English Dictionaries at lexicool.com Dec 15, 2009

The listing of German English dictionaries at lexicool.com is the best that I have found on the web (over 1000 online dictionaries and glossaries listed).

http://www.lexicool.com/online-dictionary.asp?FSP=A09B13

You can refine the listing if you select a category and/or keyword. For example, the url for German English sports dictionares is:
