Wordreference or professional

June 12, 2017

Wordreference is another of those useful resources for translators and language workers.

It offers a complete online dictionary in many languages, backed by a forum for the terms that don’t appear in its listings.

It can often be lacking in technical terms, where a more robust term search might be more useful, but as a starting point for idiom and day-to-day terms used it can be very useful. As there is little context it can be hard to be certain of which meaning should be used, but overall it’s a very useful tool for a quick check.

As with Linguee, adblocking works well to improve the site’s loading speed and to remove potential tracking of your internet activity, but as it is one of the site’s leading revenue generators, that choice should be made on an individual basis.
