Bonjour mes amis! C'est mon premier fil de discussion et je suis très heureux d'être
ici. Parce que mon français n'est pas très bien et ce sujet est un peu compliqué, je
vais écrire en anglais.

On this website and other language websites I visit, I notice there is not a general
consensus for the best dictionary to use. Obviously Google Translate is not good at all
- often times it even forgets to put le/la in front of a word, or gives literal
translations of abstract topic.

However, in school we were taught to use a website called "wordreference.com", and I
think you'll find that this dictionary is extensive and very much in-depth. I believe
it is edited by the community so it is fairly well up to date. Easy to search, example
sentences, everything. Also, if anyone is interested, I have figured out a way to
search any word on the computer incredibly fast - roughly 2-3 seconds. If someone is
interested and this hasn't been said before, I can make a quick tutoring to give back
to the community - I feel it is only appropriate considering how useful this site has
been to me so far :).

Has anyone else had a better experience with a dictionary, be it online or in paper?

Wordreference.com m'est très utile, mais mon site préféré est Linguee.com. Là, je peux voir des traductions professionnelles d'une expression dans le contexte original. Et souvent, c'est clair qu'il n'y a aucune traduction simple.

J'aime Linguee.com aussi. C'est un site magnifique! On y trouve beaucoup d'exemples pour chaque phrase ou mot.

Ah, Linguee est très bien, merci pour le lien. Est-il sûr que tous les traductions sont
correct? Si c'est la cas, on peut l'utiliser avec Anki facilement.

When I encounter a word I completely don't know I first check REVERSO to get an English translation. After that, or when I have a word which meaning I can guess, I move to Linguee. There are plenty of examples there, they can't be all wrong. That's my thinking. Most of the time I just look at the French section really, because by the time I'm on that site I more less know what the word means. From looking at the examples I see how it is used. Out of curiosity I check the translations, but they're not the reason I like Linguee so much. The reason is the French sentences.

Je préfère linguee.fr, mais de toute façon, il faut faire gaffe, et veiller à ce que la source soit fiable. Il y a beaucoup de très mauvaises traductions. Parmi les sources les plus fiables se trouvent les nombreux sites web multilingues des institutions européennes (eur-lex, etc.), qui, en règle général, sont très bien traduits.

Linguee est le meilleur que je connaisse. Attention aux traductions approximatives cependant (elles sont marquées par un point d'exclamation).

J'utilise word reference et je le trouve très utile, mais maintenant que je viens de voir linguee, je pense que je vais
utiliser les deux! Il faut noter aussi qu'il y a un forum sur word reference où on peut poser des questions pour
vérifier les traductions/les expressions idiomatiques/etc.
