An Italian dictionary for my Kindle - excellent, I thought. Then I found you need to buy two because each one goes in one direction only.

The main trouble though is that a lot of words you'd expect aren't there, and when there are alternative Italian words given you don't always get a guide as to the difference in meaning between them. So overall, this is very basic.

Unfortunately, it has few competitors. If you want Italian to English then An Electronic Italian Dictionary (Electronic Dictionaries) is good. But for English to Italian ENGLISH-ITALIAN Dictionary With Transcriptions isn't very efficient, nor that comprehensive (it's intended for Italian speakers to look up occasional English words).

There are plenty of adequate Italian phrase books and language guides on Kindle, but as yet not a dictionary, and you're still better of taking a copy of the Collins Gem Collins Gem Italian Dictionary, the Oxford Mini Oxford Italian Mini Dictionary or (if you can find one) Langenscheidt pocket Italian Langenscheidt Pocket Dictionary (Langenscheidt Dictionaries). Let's hope that one of those gets kindle-ised soon.

Although I have little good to say about the Italian English version of this dictionary (too little vocabulary to help me read Italian literature), out of the meager choice of English Italian dictionaries, this is about the best you'll get to date. It has a big virtue over some of the rather eccentric dictionaries available in being accurate.

For English speakers wanting to express themselves in Italian, this will help you with the more common words (though don't expect to be able to wax eloquent). Its plus side is that it gives you indicators of which of a choice of words to use. It also contains examples of some of the words in use with a few handy phrases. Idiomatic examples are particularly welcome. When it doesn't give alternative translations for a word, it does choose the most used one It will certainly prove a big help if you are visiting Italy.

Italian speakers will like the pronunciation guide for the English words but will probably find it too limited to help them read all but the simplest English text.

It is best used with the Merriam Webster Italian English dictionary which does contain the genders of the Italian words and their pronunciation, something not included in this dictionary.

There is still a big gap in the market for a really good Kindle English/Italian dictionary and if Collins can produce one of the quality of their English/German dictionaryCollins Concise English-German Dictionary (Collins Concise German Dictionary), this one will become redundant but it's worth buying for now.

Reviewers please note: e-dictionaries CAN only translate in one direction. Otherwise how would they know, in French for example, whether you wanted to find the French for 'chat' (causer) or the English for 'chat' (cat). So let's not go on being silly, eh?

I used this dictionary on my I-phone when in Italy. My Italian is reasonably good and I only used it when necessary, however I found it OK but not comprehensive enough for me. I could usually get over this problem. It sufficed. For the average visitor to Italy I think it would be sufficient. For students of the Italian language a larger volume would be necessary.
