5.0 out of 5 stars The best short dictionary around 20 Jun 2003
By A Customer
I've bought or checked out quite a few Dutch dictionaries in the past year and this is easily the best. It's very up to date (just published back in January this year) with many modern terms. I noticed Van Dale quoted on the back so I wonder if Routledge get their source data from them. For those not familiar with Van Dale, they're the Dutch equivalent of the Oxford English Dictionary. More about the book. It's a paperback, smallish but with a lot of words. English-Dutch and Dutch-English. It describes whether nouns are het or de words, essential to beginners. There's lots of nice example uses of words, just like you get in Van Dale books although cut down a bit. I must confess to using it much more than my bigger Van Dales dictionaries. Overall, I'd say Buy It.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastisch! 29 Nov 2009
An excellent disctionary. There aren't many good*, cheap Dutch-English dictionaries out there. This is one of them.

*Good means that the dictionary; indicates the grammatical gender of a noun; indicates whether a verb is seperable or not and; gives examples of Dutch words in a sentence. Believe it or not, I previously bought a Dutch dictionary that didn't do this. Fortunately, this one does.

4.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the best Dutch dictionary on the market 17 Jun 2009
When I was living in Belgium, a Dutch speaking country, I needed a good Dutch dictionary. I initially tried the "Teach Yourself" Dutch dictionary but found it to be totally unsuitable, especially given my needs. I found this dictionary at a second hand book store in Brussels and found it easily to be the best. Given that there are not many Dutch dictionaries out there, I can recommend this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good all-round coverage 28 Feb 2006
By A Customer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a professional translator. My knowledge of Dutch is very sketchy, but on the basis of German plus this dictionary I can get an accurate and clear understanding over 95% of the time. A lot of dictionaries that are much larger don't give these sorts of results. Obviously is doesn't do that much technical stuff, but as a companion to normal everyday educated language it is excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very happy 9 Dec 2009
By Ali
I've been using this dictionary for just a few weeks now for a Dutch beginners course. I'm finding it meets my needs well, it is easy to use and has some great little extras that I find really handy. For example, for every object, it states if is 'Het' or 'De' and also states the plural form ('s' or 'en') - typical for dictionaries I presume but it's handy all the same.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good. Some missing words though! 26 Jun 2004
I know dutch is complex langauge so I can't really fault this book. Most of the words are there: but you need to know some dutch grammer before you can figure out a lot of them. But then some seem to missing: look up 'already' in English and it says the Dutch is 'reeds', but 'reeds' isn't listed in the Dutch end. I found this a bit annoying. But overall, very good dictionary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great comprehensive dictionary -- with IPA! 23 April 2014
I love this dictionary. It has every Dutch word I have ever looked up and most importantly,
not only does it have pronunciation for the words in both languages but it uses the IPA
to express them. These characteristics put it way above the other Dutch-English dictionaries I have
wasted my money on. With the IPA, it doesn't matter what dialect of English you speak,
whether RP for British English or GenAm for (general) American English -- or if you speak English
at all: the IPA will tell you how to pronounce the words in both Dutch and English
in this dictionary. The alternatives are to have no pronunciations given at all or else somebody's
idiosyncratic symbolic system which is explained by giving examples from some dialect of English
you may not speak. Thank goodness for the IPA. Search around on the web and you will find
recordings that illustrate the IPA symbols -- and accompany a wonderful official IPA book you can buy.
