What is the best Pt-En-Pt dictionary out there?

Postby sursiks » 2010-12-15, 7:08

I would definitely prefer a dictionary (in physical form) that includes Brazilian vocabulary, although I wouldn't mind getting one that includes both Br and Pt words. I hope no thread like that exists yet.. I did skim the forum before making this one! :whistle:

The Michaelis is the most known brand over here, it's really reliable and it's available in physical form. However, I don't know where exactly you can find a vendor that exports.
I've never seen a dictionary with European and Brazilian words. Personally, I would rather have one for each variation, as it would cover all rare discrepancies of each portuguese variation.

The Michaelis is really the most traditional and reliable dictionary of this kind. But you must understand that to compile such a dictionary as you want is a hard (very hard) task. It takes lots of time, effort, talent, and, of course, money. That's why they're so scarce.
