I saw the question posted about a French-English technical dictionary . I am collecting dictionaries as I am sitting the Institute of Linguists exam in January, and am not able to connect to Internet for the exam, is there a site or place where second-hand bilingual dictionaries are sold, dictionaries that are no longer needed by translators for example?

Post a request under the "Exchange " tab Nov 18, 2004

Hi transanne,
You can post your request right here at ProZ.com!
Go to the community tab, select Exchange > Books> Request
and enter your item.

http://www.proz.com/?sp=exchange&viewPage=view_requests&outer_page=books

It seems, however, that not many people use (or maybe know about) this feature, but it's certainly worth a try. You could also post a request in your language specific forum.

Bonne chance,
johanna

Thank you Nov 18, 2004

Hi Johanna,

I just wanted to thank you for pointing out the Exchange area on this site, which I admit had escaped my notice. You're right though, it doesn't look like it gets used much but at least now I know it's there for future reference.

Thanks again,

Ebay Jan 29, 2005

Ebay is a fantastic source of used paper and electronic dictionaries. Check out ebay.fr or ebay.co.uk and type in whatever you may be looking for. I have nearly always found what I was looking for and usually got it cheaper than I would have elsewhere.

Thanks for your replies Jan 29, 2005

I will have a look on E-bay.fr, I often look on e-bay.uk but have never really thought about France, thanks of your input.
