The hard work over the last few months by lexicool.com's staff has paid off... the directory has increased in size, and now contains over 3000 bilingual dictionaries and glossaries!
There are several new features at the site, the most notable being the addition of a directory of post-graduate translation and interpreting courses. This directory already contains information from eight countries and other countries will be added over the next few months. If you are a course provider and wish to have your course details included, please contact us.
The directory of post-graduate translation and interpreting courses can be found at: http://www.lexicool.com/courses.asp
Have you created a bilingual glossary that you would like to make available to other translators? Lexicool.com can compile and publish your glossary at no cost to you as part of the LEXIK (freeware) collection (see: http://www.lexicool.com/soft_lexik.asp). For further information, please contact us.
Below are a few particularly interesting dictionaries that we have added to the directory recently
