On the august 2003 is a CD "Collins French-English English-French Talking Dictionary.

My partner is an Interpreter for a French Company and does not think this programme is very good. If anyone else has installed it and tried it please let me know. This is only my opinion.

with this pj123?

Perhaps Collins might be the best people to approach about it - they made the dictionary.

FE. Thanks for your response. I realise you are not responsible for the programmes on the Cover Disk. It's just that I typed in a common word "me" which should have returned "moi". but all it did was say "me". Not "moi". I would just like to know if anyone else has tried it and I am doing something wrong?

It is not really scientific to base an opinion on one word, especially a subjective that is difficult to translate unless it is in a full sentence. Try a few more words.

Yes, I know what you are saying, but it is supposed to be a dictionary. You know, look up one word it will tell you what it means? I have a English to French/French to English dictionary. If I look up "me" in the English section it tells me "moi".????

When i type in me is shows"moi on the second line after explaining about me"

Have i missed the point?

I don't know, that's why I have asked if anyone else has installed this programme, and what do they think of it?

Must be working, I typed in French and it came up with garlic crunching veto using cattle burning frogs....

My French is not the greatest but the English to French dictionary seems ok to me.I did not try the Talking bit - can not stand noise so speakers are off most of the time.

Must be me then? I will give it another go. I will drag some text from Word onto it. Thanks everyone.
