      Dear colleagues,

      I am very new to this forum, and I have only recently taken up Czech
      as a working language again. I used to translate mainly Czech >
      German from 1985 to 2000, but since I have moved to Australia, I have
      been specialising in German <> English. In that combination, the
      Internet offers absolutely phantastic support, through Google and
      other search engines, as well as through free dictionaries such as
      www.dict.cc and associated forums.

      I wonder whether there is at least one Internet-based dictionary
      available for Czech <> English, too. Can you give me a hint?

      The only tool that I currently have to support my work is the "Velký
      anglicko-èeský slovník (Academia Praha 1993)", which I don't find
      very satisfactory.

      I will be grateful for any advice.

      Regards,
      Romana

        Hi Romana,

        I think the new contender for the crown on best Cz<>EN dictionary is http://slovnik.seznam.cz
        . I found too many errors in www.slovnik.cz. I also keep on a hand a
        copy of Fronek, and a few other specialized dictionaries for legal,
        business and EU terms.

        regards,
        jennifer

          Hi Romana,
          there is a new dictonary site at http://www.e-slovniky.cz , but only the general dictionaries are free and you have to pay for access to technical dictionaries.

          Hope this helps,

            I sometimes use the dictionary at http://web.volny.cz

            However, I find myself using http://www.slovnik.cz much more often
            now, partly because its results are much less surrealistic than the
            ones at Volny, and also because it allows lookups without using carky
            and hacky, so I don't have to keep switching keyboards to go from my
            English translation to the dictionary.

              I've come to prefer http://slovnik.seznam.cz/, but also use Centrum.cz
              Slovníky - vyhledávání <http://slovniky.centrum.cz/search.php>,
              http://web.volny.cz/najdito/slovnik/, and
              http://www.websters-online-dictionary.org/translation/Czech/index.html.

              I agree with Jamie's comments: ALL the online-dictionaries should be used
              with EXTREME CAUTION!!! The nonsense in the Czech to English component is
              mind-boggling. If you're Czech check!
