As with most decent Kindle dictionaries this is a one-way only dictionary - English to German - though for this price you should easily be able to afford the excellent The Big German-English Dictionary With 400 000 Word Pairs (German Edition) by the same author.

This is properly indexed as a dictionary (as you type a word in the Search dictionary box, a word list appears).

Word pairs is a bit of a humble description for this dictionary, it actually gives a number of alternative translations. It contains translations for word groups too. I'd been looking for some time for a dictionary that contained the correct phrase for 'Food and Drink Industries'. It has some handy idiomatic phrases too (e.g.'I am at my wit's end', 'in a bad temper'). It's got some very useful business phrases eg. Shipping addresses - Lieferadressen, invoice at cost - nach Aufwand verrechnen, exempt from duty - abgabenfrei and medical ones 'attention deficit' - 'Aufmerksamkeitsschwäche'

Some of the phrases are a bit unusual - more like example phrases. One entry,'In 2005 he came to the attention of police' - is neatly translated as '2005 trat er polizeilich (mit einer Straftat) in Erscheinung'. However, if I wanted to look up 'Come to someone's attention' rather than looking up 'in', I would look up 'attention' expecting to find an entry 'attention, to come to s.o' or I'd look under 'come' however I would not find 'in Erscheinung treten' there. And unfortunately, although you can get to the Kindle's Find function (highlight word, press Space bar, then left on the 5-way button) it won't find anything.

I downloaded this to my Kindle prior to a visit to my in-laws in Germany. It was useful when I was at a loss for a German word - it's 17 yrs since I was last there and many of the older people do not speak English - also it is polite to try and speak the language. Definitely helped me cut down on weight and easy to carry around. Obviously being just word pairs could have limitations but it did what it claimed.

It is something that you cannot easily use, I did not even look up one word it just kept scrolling across the pages with sayings ie ( the high school) giving German underneath and that was all that was on that page, totally useless for a Kindle and I paid for this, I would like to get my money back too, I have deleted off now.
