Hello, everyone! could you recommend a good English-Russian technical dictionary which you can buy on-line? It should be big volume and concise. Price does not matter. Thanks

Why to buy? Nov 18, 2010

You can use Multitran.ru (free online dictionary)
In addition, buy Lingvo.ru online (it contains at least 2 technical dictionaries).

+ some online glossaries (depending on your specialism)

Paid versions - more opportunities :) Nov 18, 2010

Both above mentioned dictionaries are also possible to buy. Besides, you may additionally buy a more specialised dictionary (at least for Lingvo) according to your needs.

Just jumping into this discussion late Mar 1, 2011

I've been researching the topic and narrowed my choices (I'm not sure there are any more on disk) to Polyglossum and Lingvo (now that the latter is available for the Macintosh platform).

I'll go with the latter but Polyglossum has a lot of specialized dictionaries available for download (the program itself is free; they make their money off the dictionaries).

However, Lingvo's (ABBYY's) web page is much more professional and Polyglossum's (which has errors in English, as does the program documentation, making you wonder how good the dictionaries are!)
