Arabic -> English Dictionary

Postby Climacus » Mon Apr 15, 2013 3:09 am

Hi all,

Does anyone have a recommendation for an Arabic -> English dictionary, book [or e-book]? I have an English -> Arabic dictionary a friend gave me which is useful, but if I hear an Arabic word an Arabic -> English dictionary would be more helpful given I may have no idea what the word means!

I know I should probably embrace the Internet age and use Google Translate or similar, but I do like books. :D But my thanks to all at ArabicPod for your online dictionary which is very helpful; I am just looking for a larger, and paper, source.

Thanks all,
Ian.

But it can take a while until you understand how to use it if you are on a beginner-level in your arabic studies. Here is a guide: http://www.thearabicstudent.com/2009/12 ... onary.html
