Has been a constant and very reliable companion throughout my studies so far. Very comprehensive, clearly laid out and easy to use. Very pleased with this purchase. If you want a Swedish - English dictionary that will do the job to the expected standard, look no further. You will not be disappointed,

HASH(0x8f6f17d4) out of 5 stars Prisma's Swedish-English Dictionary-A Great Investment 16 Dec. 2000
By Todd C. - Published on Amazon.com
The first time I saw this book was when I decided to buy it,being that there is a great lack of useful Swedish Dictionaries published in the English language. However, when I received this dictionary it well out-did itself. Not only does it have a section on Swedish pronunciation, noun endings, and other grammatical features at the beginning, it gives numerous phrases and other helpful words associated with most every word you look up. Beware, that if you think this book is Swedish-English, English-Swedish (as I mistakingly did), you're in for a surprise. However, if you do decide to buy the complement edition to this book-the English-Swedish version-you are once again in for a treat, as it presents the same quality as this book, only for English-Swedish translations.
This really was a great investment, and I urge anyone interested in the Swedish language to pick this (as well as the companion volume) up, along with either Routledge's Comprehensive Swedish Grammar (if you're really serious), Routledge's Essential Swedish Grammar (if you're just interested or need a small review)in addition to a good Swedish course (Colloquial Swedish-with the cassettes of course-is a good beginner's course).

HASH(0x9cbc8d5c) out of 5 stars Read Item Carefully! 29 Nov. 2011
By Brian Lange. - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
All of these reviews seem to be incorrectly grouped for both the English-Swedish and the Swedish-English versions. If you go to either book, you will see the exact same reviews despite there being different ISBN numbers. I hope amazon figures this out and corrects it.

That being said, I did get "fooled" into buying this because it is listed as "English and Swedish" version, which I assumed to mean that you could look up either language and get the translation. Nope. It's just a one way street. I have the Swedish-English version (yellow cover) and it is very thick with lots of words, but I just realized as I wanted to know a word... I couldn't even look it up because I don't know what it is!

Basically you'll have to get both books (which will be pricy), but there don't seem to be a lot of options, either. Try holding out, maybe Langenschidt will release a new Swedish version of their dictionaries, which are awesome.

Other than that it seems very comprehensive, the spine being over an inch thick. If you have both, great for desk work... not great for travelling.

HASH(0x9cbc7db0) out of 5 stars Great set of dictionaries 4 Jan. 2007
By Kenneth W. Potter - Published on Amazon.com
This set of dictionaries has helped tremendously with my translation of Swedish text. I'm studying Swedish political documents and this dictionary has been invaluable.

HASH(0x9cbca828) out of 5 stars An Absolute Necessity 12 Aug. 2008
By Filiz - Published on Amazon.com
I find myself getting absorbed in this book every time I look up a word! There are many useful idiomatic phrases for the word, along with the various related prepositions, endings and assorted definitions. Just browsing through this dictionary is a substantial language lesson. I will get the English-Swedish volume also but am glad the two books are not in one volume, as that would be too much to handle. Readers should go through the notes at the beginning of the book, to get full advantage from how the entries are presented. I highly recommend.
