Some other online German-English dictionaries June 20, 2008

Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in Tools, Translation Sites.

In addition to Leo and dict.cc, I sometimes use FreeDic.net, TU Chemnitz’s BEOLINGUS, Grimms Deutsches Wörterbuch, the Digitale Wörterbuch der deutschen Sprache des 20. Jahrhunderts, the University of Leipzig’s Wortschatz, and the dictionaries at wissen.de (which I’ve created a TinyURL for).

And of course no translator’s browser toolbar should be without a link to Refdesk.com or Webster’s Online Dictionary. This is just the tip of my Bookmarks iceberg, but they are the ones I use most frequently. What are your favorite online dictionaries?

Hi Jill,

One of my firm favourites is the EU’s multilingual term base, Inter Active Terminology for Europe (http://iate.europa.eu/). I translate quite a lot of texts related to EU policy so I find it to be a real treasure trove for the kind of work I do.

Hi Abigail,

I really like that one too. I forgot to include that. Then again, I don’t translate EU texts that often anymore. Thanks for adding that one!
