Duden Online May 6, 2011

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

German translators, rejoice! Since early May Duden has put its Duden Rechtschreibung and Deutsches Universalwörterbuch online for us to use – free of charge at www.duden.de. If you want to look up a word, check its correct spelling, or learn more about its meaning or etymology the Duden is the reference work of choice. It is one of Germany’s most respected line of grammar books. The Duden was first published by Konrad Duden in 1880. The Duden is updated regularly, with new editions appearing every four or five years. It is currently in its 25th edition and published in 12 volumes, covering different aspects of grammar like spelling, foreign words, pronunciation, synonyms, quotes and idioms (those are just the volumes I own).

That’s awesome; thanks for sharing. I have the CD-Rom version, but this is a great resource for sure.

Thank you, Jill. I don’t officially translate to/from German, but it is my mother tongue and now and then my siblings will ask to me to translate something for them. And occasionally, I will attempt to write an e-mail to a friend or relative (my written German ain’t what it used to be!)

yeah finally!

i’ve always had to look in my overdated hard copy of the Duden when i did german translations – possible yes but awkward as well 😉
