Linguee: bilingual dictionary and search engine

Linguee: bilingual dictionary and search engine | Learning technologies for EFL | Scoop.it

Linguee is a unique translation tool combining an editorial dictionary and a search engine with which you can search hundreds of millions of bilingual texts for words and expressions.

The Linguee search results are divided into two sections. On the left hand side you see results from our reliable editorial dictionary. This provides you with a quick overview of various translations of your search term. On the right hand side, you see example sentences from other sources to give you an idea of how your search term has been translated in context.

Compared to traditional online dictionaries, Linguee contains about 1,000 times more translated texts, which are displayed in full sentences. Linguee shows translations for expressions such as "strong evidence", "strong relationship" or "strong opinion", and even for rare expressions or specific technical terms.

Shona Whyte's curator insight, March 14, 10:57 AM

Just using this to translate an abstract from English to French - a great addition to a regular bilingual dictionary and thesaurus, and available from English to a good number of Romance and Slavic languages.

OneLook Reverse Dictionary

OneLook Reverse Dictionary | Learning technologies for EFL | Scoop.it

Nik Peachey:

The OneLook reverse dictionary is a great tool to get students thinking about how they explain what words mean. Unlike most dictionaries which gives you the meaning of a word, this one will give you the word as long as you can give the correct maning. This is a great skill to develop as a language learner.

Linguee

Linguee | Learning technologies for EFL | Scoop.it
Great dictionary for language learners: see your word or expression in a number of different sentences, translated into French, German, Spanish or Portuguese.

Often the problem for learners is not so much finding a translation as deciding which is most appropriate. Linguee should help with this.

A great dictionary/translation tool

A great dictionary/translation tool | Learning technologies for EFL | Scoop.it

Dan Frost says: "This site basically trawls the net for your word/term and sees how other folk have translated it. I've found it better than Google and things like Wordreference's forums for going further than a normal dictionary."
