Language Notes

Text: English, German

From the Publisher

The 21ST Century German-English/English-German Dictionary is an invaluable reference source for today's students, business people and travelers, providing essential information in an easy-to-use format. It is one of four books in the new 21st Century line of foreign dictionaries, which also includes:

French-English/English-French

Italian-English/English-Italian

Spanish-English/English-Spanish

The dual format of these dictionaries eliminates the need to use two dictionaries. Students can use The 21st Century German-English/English-German Dictionary to find the English translation of an unfamiliar German word--and to discover the correct way to express a certain English phrase in German. Because each entry is listed in both German and English, this dictionary is useful for every situation, for business people checking the terms of a contract on an international deal, to foreign exchange students getting settled into a German dormitory, and to tourists trying to understand the items on a menu.

The 21st Century German/English-English/German Dictionary provides individual entries in a concise, easy-to-follow format, with clear pronunciation guides and succinct definitions. This is the most up-to-date, reliable German to English, English to German dictionary on the market, and will be an indispensible tool for every occasion.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I bought this dictionary for the express purpose of helping me (before I gain proficiency in German) read philosophical discourses which make use of untranslated words in German (these are very common). Sadly, this dictionary seems to have none of the words that I've needed. Even the simplest of expressions, like the Erlebnis, are wholly absent from this dictionary (as far as I can tell... unless this dictionary has a "secret compartment" where all its more useful words are waiting, somewhere beyond the ken of those of us trapped in a merely phenomenological existence...)
Perhaps it's useful for people who want quick reference while travelling through Germany... however I have doubts even about this as (in the English section) I couldn't even find words that I KNOW exist, like the equivalent of "good bye"...
In sort- it's frustrating. But maybe there are SOME that could make use of it, and so (since I'm a charitable sort) I'll give it 2 stars instead of 1...

This German-English dictionary has a substansial number of entries, however there are several areas where the dictionary is lacking in structure. There are many words which are only shown in one form, without additional conjugation. This makes it difficult to locate a word if you do not know the root word. I was dissapointed that this reference did not include many idioms and phrases which are useful in conversational German. The dictionary also lacks some of the newer technological entries, and does not specify when words are used by a particular field (medical, legal, scientific term, etc.)This dictionary is good for the occasional speaker of German to use as a reference book. However, for students of German or for those wishing to learn the language, this dictionary is not a complete enough reference source. After purchasing this book and becoming frustrated with its limitations, I donated it to my local library. I then bought Langenscheidt's yellow-cover Pocket German Dictionary, which I am very pleased with and would highly recommend.

This dictionary, though simple to use, is missing far too many necessary words to be of any use to even a beginning student of German. I showed the book to my German teacher, and he advised throwing it away.

By Jeff Barnes on April 2, 2002
Format: Mass Market Paperback
As other reviewers have mentioned, the most annoying problem with this dictionary is its limited vocabulary. The cover boasts 30,000 vocabulary entries, but they are most certainly not sufficient for anyone who wishes to communicate successfully in German. It is designed to be easy-to-read, with larger-than-normal print and plenty of white space, but I rather wish they had made the text a couple of sizes smaller and filled the extra space with useful vocabulary. It's also rather silly to give childish phonetic pronunciations for every word in the dictionary, since German is, in most cases, very phonetic and easy to pronounce in the first place. Conspicuously absent is some sort of section on irregular verb conjugation, such as can be found in many other similar dictionaries.

I don't find this dictionary even adequate. I spend more time having to get up and use my large hardback german dictionary kept across the room. This dictionary is missing even basic words. For example "fertig" and all its derivatives---not to be found. I'd say 2 out of 3 normal words I look up are not to be found. I'm throwing it away after I log out.
