5.0 out of 5 stars A blessing for lazy French students everywhere..., September 23, 2005
This review is from: Pop-up Oxford-Hachette French Dictionary: Windows Individual User Version 2.0 (CD-ROM)
Oxford University Press's bilingual dictionary software would have to be one of the most useful language-learning products ever invented. It's extremely user-friendly - just double click on a word in English or French and the definition (if available) will pop up in a window. It also works for words that are part of a hyperlink - if you hold your mouse pointer over the word without clicking, it will appear in the program's little rectangular search box and you can click the search icon to look it up.

Compared to non-pop-up dictionaries on CD, this type of software saves a lot of time as there's no need to change windows or type words in to look them up, so your concentration isn't broken every time you meet an unfamiliar word or phrase. It's great for composition as well as reading the online French news, as you can use it in Word to help translate English into French. My only complaint is that it's only available in a heavily abridged, "concise" version - the back of my box says 175,000 words and 270,000 translations, compared to 360,000 words and phrases and more than 542,000 translations in the unabridged Oxford-Hachette.
