Hi there,
about the bilingual dictionaries, do you find problems that might face translators when using bilingual dictionaries during the translation process. If so, what do you think the better way to overcome such deficiencies in the bilingual dictionaries?
O.k. go ahead,,,post your opinions...

Hi Nora...I c a problem in the bilingual dictionaries when they dont give examples to clarify the usage of the word. it makes it difficult for the translator or learner to decide which meaning to use
I'll come back when have sth in mind:)

I usually check with a native speaker when I do a translation. Bilingual dictionaries only cover so many examples. Word Reference is a good place to ask for opinions, but don't just take one.
