We bought the Franklin 'Pons' English/German electronic dictionary and have found it very good and easy to use.

Re: English/German Electironic Dictionary...

I had a Franklin PONS English German dictionary, which I found slow but very comprehensive. These days I have the PONS English German dictionary on my iPhone, so if you have an iPhone or an iPod touch you can download from the applestore for about 30CHF. It's also possible that other smartphone platforms have an equivalent dictionaries available for download.

If however you want to buy a stand alone electronic dictionary I would budget for at least 250-300CHF for it. The cheaper ones are really not as comprehensive, and often are multi-language which limits the dictionaries even further with some offering only single word translations.

Hi Trova

I got a Casio Ex-word EW-G3500 a few years back. It was in the CHF 200 to 300 price range as I recall but has proved worth the expense. I wanted one that would take me from beginners to advanced level German studies and useage.

Here's the link to the Casio website for their range of electronic dictionaries - http://www.ex-word.de/de/ (in German only).

You could also try contacting the excellent Orelli Füssli English bookshop in Zurich for help and advice on choosing the right make / model for you. They carry a range of different brands - http://books.ch/shop/action/magazine...07790&nav=5853 - the staff speak English and I have always found them to be extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

I ran 3 searches on the Orell Füssli website and got the following different results:

1) "electronische wörterbuch" - http://books.ch/shop/action/quickSea...archSubmit.y=0

2) "electronic dictionary" - http://books.ch/shop/action/quickSea...archSubmit.y=7

3) "casio ex-word" - http://books.ch/shop/action/quickSea...archSubmit.y=0

Hope this helps.

All the best

Re: English/German Electironic Dictionary...

I'm not sure how advanced you need? I use the Collins English-German dictionary app on my iPhone and it's pretty good.

I love my Franklin model LDE-1680!
Easy, intuitive, and contains loads of information.

Hi,

as long as you don't need to carry it around all the time, or have internet access on your mobile, you might want to try this link:

http://dict.tu-chemnitz.de/

It's a free online dictionary which I consult regularly and it's never let me down (as far as I know).
