Format: Paperback
This is probably the best small Spanish-English dictionary around. The definitions cover many different uses of words, often with examples, and the information about irregular verbs is comprehnsive and understandable. "False friends" are clearly identified.

In the present edition, the cover has been changed from that used in most illustrations, including Amazon's but the content is the same.

This is an okay book but its main downfall is that it is really heavy to lift up. The speed of ordering was amazing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally a working Spanish Dictionary for the Kindle! 12 Oct. 2008
By George G. Olive - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
At the time of this review the bugs have been worked out and the Harrap's Dictionary is fully functional on the Kindle. At the Home page go to Settings, click on Dictionary, choose Harrap's, and you are ready to translate. It will not translate phrases - or at least I haven't learned how yet - but it is most satisfactory for individual words.

Update: while it can be installed it is not fully functional. The 'look up' function is seriously flawed. Hopefully these problems will be corrected and the book offered again.

New update - Dated 7/18/2010 - Finally it is actually working. No, really! It can now look up words and function as a Kindle dictionary. Like all of the other Kindle dictionaries, it has problems handling reflexive verbs. Changes in gender aren't always noted - it has abuelo but not abuela, for example. But overall it is currently my ebook dictionary of choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great dictionary for its price 22 Jun. 2010
By Gary J. Chidester - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is for the printed paperback version. To be honest I didn't research what was the best "pocket sized" Spanish-English dictionary. I simply found it at a used bookstore and once I started using it I found it really helpful. It contains a ton of words and most importantly words from both Spain and Latin America. Colloquial and even curse words from both continents are included, as are notes and reminders of "false friends" cognates.

Normally when I'm at home or have access to the internet I use the online dictionaries because there are just so many resources available. However when this is not possible or practical this dictionary suits my every translation need.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the purchase! 25 Dec. 2010
By tuco45 - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The hardcover copy of this dictionary is excellent! I bought it in Spain four years ago, and I use it all the time. The best part is it tells what phrases and words to use in different countries in both English and Spanish. This dictionary is pricey, but worth every penny.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great Idea Poorly Executed 6 Nov. 2008
By Thomas Hyatt - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I read a lot of books in Spanish. From the day I purchased my Kindle, I had been waiting for a Spanish English dictionary to appear for the Kindle where I could directly look up words right on the Kindle. It seemed so perfect - highlight a word that was mysterious and have the translation right on the screen in a second. No wasted time searching through a paperback dictionary or looking up the word on my PDA, losing my place in the story. It all seemed so, well....perfect and possible.

So when I saw this dictionary offered and discovered that you could set the Kindle to have this as the default dictionary, I was thrilled. However, it only took a few pages of Mitch Albom's "Por Un Dia Mas" and a few obscure Spanish words to put me in a Castillian funk.

First of all the Kindle technique for looking up a word is wacky. You go to the line of text, click on the line, choose lookup, and then the interface searches for the definition of every word on the line. Invariably, you get "un", "por" or some other common Spanish word that appears in the line of text you clicked on along with what you hope is the word you are actually looking for. And there is the rub. After waiting for the Kindle to grab the meanings of the 8 or so words in the line, (which takes way too long since it is looking up all the words you don't care a wit about also) you cross your fingers that the one you want will appear. But no....normally it doesn't. Most times, the reason you need to use a dictionary is because the word is not common or is "poco comun" as they say in Spanish. But even words that should be there don't seem to show up. Needless to say, I was very disappointed.

So here are my suggestions:

1) Find a way within the Kindle interface to just highlight the word you want so that the thing does not have to waste time showing you words you already know or don't care about.
2) Expand the number of words in the dictionary so that it improves on the perhaps 30% rate of return that it now has.
3) Improve the search algorithm so that conjugated words in the text can be referred back to the root verb in the dictionary. Most good electronic dictionaries do this.
4) And this is where I am totally confused (so someone help me with this if I have gotten this all wrong.) It appears that you can't just search the dictionary directly for words outside the look-up technique when you are reading a story. I have been able to page through the book,one page at a time, but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to jump to a particular word. The "search" feature of the Kindle consistently gives me a "no definitions found" message no matter what Spanish word I enter. Arrrggghh.

So, in summary, this is all very disappointing and makes me feel like an idea , so elegant - to be able just to click on a word in a story and immediately get its translation - has been so poorly implemented that I have given up using the product that had so much promise.
