This review is from: French to English Dictionary (Collins Digital Dictionaries) (French Edition) (Kindle Edition)
I was excited when I found this for the Kindle - at last, no more leafing through a paper volume, or being chained to a computer to look words up on the internet.
I downloaded it in seconds, and it's worth every penny. I've read lots of French literature so smoothly from simply being able to touch a word (on the Kindle Touch) - and in an instant the definition appears in a small box over the text - if you want to go deeper you can go to the full definition. If it doesn't find a word listed there (unlikely - it's one of the best dictionaries out there), then the Kindle will simply default to the in-built monolingual French dictionary to see if it's there. It's had 99% of the words I've looked up - it does sometimes confuse words that look identical, but you can always go to the full definition to clear it up. It has lots of idioms, and will recognise conjugations of verbs, plurals, with the l' in front of a word.
It's basically excellent! And if you have a paper copy of a book in French, then you can still use Collins as an electronic dictionary on the Kindle - a small virtual keyboard appears for you to input the words!
Really great buy.
