I know that there are numerous users of Oxford SuperLex out there. I\'ve been to the Oxford University Press site, but I\'m at a loss as to how to order this resource. All I can find there is technical support information.



Howe does one buy this product? I\'m in the United States, by the way.



Many thanks to anyone who can help.

I couldn't find any "superlex" on the OUP website Dec 27, 2002

You mentioned SuperLex, is it the same as the \"Oxford 3-in-1 Bilingual Dictionary on CD-Rom\"?



I found this page

https://www.oup-usa.org/search/jsp/docread.jsp?k2dockey=http://www.oup-usa.org/isbn/0192683322.html@oup&querytext=spanish%20AND%20dictionary



If this is what you\'re looking for, just simply click on the \"buy\" button on the left of the screen. Then it\'ll take you to the order page.



Good luck!

Limitations of Superlex Dec 28, 2002

The first reply tells you how to get Oxford online dictionaries. I use the Russian version and find it excellent. However, it is quite old, and works best with Word 6.



The hot key (where you click on a word and the dictionary pops up with the entry) only works in Word 6, and you can\'t paste a word into the dictionary from Word 97 or later. This is almost certainly because of the unicode encoding used for Cyrillic, and may not apply to Western European languages.



So - try and check out the functions before you buy!
