Merged: dictionary recommendation

I have just started learning Polish. Can you please recommend a good Polish-English English-Polish paperback dictionary? Also any other language tools that would be helpful on a trip to Poland outside the major cities.

Dziekuje
Shahama

Handy to have this PDF on your PC but I would think twice before printing it off !

polish.slavic.pitt.edu/dictionary.pdf

It is quite a large file - maybe not what you would want to take on your travels and is only PL - Eng.

there is a good online translator called poltran.com as far as the dictionary goes the oxford, english-polish and polish-english is the best

hope it helps

There are quite a lot of good dictionaries on the market though I am not sure if there are many soft back-if that is an important thing. I have got a Slownik Angielsko-Polski Polko-Angielski printed by Buchman printed in Warszawa in 2005. I have many but I mention this one as it is not too complicated to use and I picked up this copy for £3 in a charity shop in Leatherhead. Sometims, even at car boots you may pick something up.

I have the Langenscheidt Pocket Dictionary (Polish) which was quite useful, you can have if you like I dont use it anymore

Langenscheidt

The lurid yellow of Langenshite. You poor thing Amy you have my sympathy. For me and it's all subjective vicar naturally the best was Pons or Hueber with quite appropriately Langenshite bringing up the rear. :)

I couldnt agree more Mr H...hence the reason Im giving it away that and the fact Polish might as well have been Chinese as far Im concerened, I blame it on the numbers I was quite enjoying it until I was told there were up to four spellings of certain numbers...I struggle with just the one in English :)

ling.pl is also very good, some words you search, sometimes answer back in the phrases they are most commonly used in.

Merged:What's the best English - Polish Dictionary?

Dzień dobry! I am trying to learn some Polish so I can communicate with my new friend in his own language. (His English is perfect, but I'm really enjoying learning...) I have the Teach Yourself Polish course and a collins gem dictionary so far, however he's intentionally giving me words I need to research, and will probably not find in my dictionary... (fun, but frustrating...)

For instance, I'm guessing signing off with "Do przeczytania" doesn't have anything to do with przeczytac - "reading a book from cover to cover" (d'oh), or maybe it does... (You see the level I'm at...) If anyone can recommend a thorough and comprehensive dictionary I can invest in, I'd appreciate it....

Dziękuję.

A look around this section should give you what you want, dont be deterred by a slow response but this question seems to get asked a couple of times a week!

This thread has some good stuff in it, did you mean online or an actual book?

polish.slavic.pitt.edu/dictionary.pdf
This is a very good PDF dictionary for your PC, its not comprehensive but its a good start and easy to use.

Some online dictionary/translation tools:

dict.pl/dict_iso
polish-dictionary.com
tranexp.com:2000/Translate/result.shtml]Inter-Tran

A guide to letters and words on video. (a lot of hard work done by someone on here, nuff respec!)

polish.slavic.pitt.edu - A much praised site that should help with everything else.

I started with the Pimsleur audio program, good for your MP3 player to learn anytime/anywhere and will get you started on the basics and with pronunciation.

It isnt cheap... unless you find it in a torrent somewhere.... *innocence-whistles*

I've only been learning for a couple of months in the precious little time i have to spare, but last night i had a great chance to test myself and it felt great to be able to communicate! (albeit on a very basic level so far!) Good encouragement to carry on.

Of all the links i give above, i have found the best place to come is here!

powodzenia!

There's a good free (yes FREE) pdf dictionary here: polish.slavic.pitt.edu

Click on the dictionary link to download. It's PL-ENG, but using Acrobat's search function you can look up english words also.
