    Muy recomendable

    Es un buen diccionario, pero.. pero hay que tomar en cuenta las siguientes experiencias que he vivido especialmente cuando instale el CD-ROM en mi Laptop. En mi Laptop tengo instalado Windows 7, pero como uds sabran la Microsoft tuvo un problema en su sistema y por esa razon algunos hackers podian atacar las computadoras. Actualmente Microsoft ha resuelto el problema eficientemente. Pero precisamente en ese intervalo vivi una experiencia que se las quiero compartir. Estuve muy contento cuando instale el Oxford Spanish Dictionary (OSD) en mi Laptop. Todo funcionaba a las mil maravillas. Ademas tengo en mi Lap instalado el Antivirus NORTON 360. Cuando en uno de esos dias, antes de que la Microsoft corrigiera el programa, me entro un virus a mi Lap. Y borro el OSD y el The Chambers Dictionary que tambien tengo instalado en mi Lap. El Merriam Webster Dictionary que tambien tengo instalado, permanecio intacto. Pero los dos (02) Diccionarios de Ingles que he mencionado fueron BARRIDOS de mi Laptop. Entonces pense: No hay problema! Porque tengo el CD-ROM y lo vuelvo a instalar, y resuelto el problema. PERO NO FUE ASI.... Pues cuando quise otra vez instalar el OSD, se instalaba, PERO CUANDO LE DABA OPEN FILE... NO RESPONDIA Y NO ABRIA. Desinstale, y volvi a instalarlo. PERO SUCEDIA SIEMPRE LO MISMO: SE INSTALABA EN EL DISCO DURO, PERO NO SE ABRIA, CUANDO LE DABA LA ORDEN: OPEN. Cansado de toda esta situacion, me vi forzado a escribir al Customer Service de la Oxford en Inglaterra. Me respondieron y me trataron muy amablemente, y luego de unos dias, me enviaron desde Inglaterra un archivo que tuve que instalar, y al fin pudo correr el OSD. Desde aqui, quiero tambien expresar mi GRATITUD PARA CON LA OSD, QUE ME TRATO AMABLEMENTE, Y ME RESOLVIO EL PROBLEMA. A todos mis amigos lectores, les planteo que antes que compren un programa como el Oxford, se pongan en la situacion, de que pasaria si a uno de Uds les entra un Virus en su compu, y se ven forzados a volver instalar el programa... funcionara??? En mi disco duro tambien tengo instalado el diccionario bilingüe de "Collins Spanish Unabridged Dictionary", y este diccionario asi como el Merriam Webster Dictionary pudieron soportar el ataque del Virus. Desde aqui mis felicitaciones para esas compañias. Si uds usan el OSD y tienen como idioma materno el ingles, este diccionario es muy excelente, porque les da la traduccion y ADEMAS LA FORMA COMO SE PRONUNCIA UNA PALABRA EN ESPAÑOL. Pero si Ud es una persona que tiene como idioma materno el español, pues la traduccion escrita la va a tener cuando ud busca una palabra en ingles y desea ver su traduccion en ingles. PERO EN INGLES ES MUY IMPORTANTE SABER COMO SE PRONUNCIA UNA PALABRA, PORQUE EN INGLES SE ESCRIBE DE UNA MANERA Y SE PRONUNCIA DE OTRA. Y ESTA BONANZA NO SE HALLA PARA LOS USUARIOS QUE TIENEN COMO LENGUA MATERNA: ESPAÑOL. En este aspecto creo que el programa instalado del diccionario bilingüe de "Collins Spanish Unabridged Dictionary", es mucho mejor, puesto que brinda la pronunciacion de una palabra tanto en ingles como en español. Otro detalle tambien muy importante a tomar en cuenta, es el siguiente. Si Uds trabajan un documento en Word, o algun programa en texto, y tienen activo el OSD en una ventana, y por algun motivo, presionan las teclas para copiar algo: <CTRL> + <C>... despues que levantan los dedos, se evoca automaticamen

    I could not learn Spanish without this very handy reference CD

    This is the perfect dictionary, which I use EVERYDAY as I am learning Spanish. It is the computer CD version of the GIGANTIC Oxford Spanish Dictionary. The book probably weighs 10 pounds! The CD has everything the book has and more. You install the program and you instantly have a great reference. It translates both ways, English to Spanish, Spanish to English. You can easily get the pronunciation of a word by simply right-clicking on it. It gives definitions and example sentences. It has part of the program called "Real Speak" where you can type in a sentence or paragraph, and a very pleasing female voice recites your words so that you can hear the proper pronunciation. I could not learn this language without it!!!!!

    I Also Recommend:

    Indispensable/Imprescindible. Double your speed looking up words. Easy to understand which word to choose. ¡Doble su velocidad en buscar palabras! Fácil para decidir que palabra escoger.

    The speed for looking up words in incredible. Everything is very clear. Also indispensable is the DLE of the RAE (Diccionario de la Lengua Española of the Real Academia Española) on CD-ROM on one's computer (together with a monolingual dictionary in English). When one begins typing in a word, both dictionaries offer suggestions. The online DLE does not.

    La velocidad por buscar palabras es increíble. Todo es muy nítido. También es imprescindible el DLE de la RAE (Diccionario de la Lengua Española de la Real Academia Española) en CD-ROM en su computadora (juntos con un diccionario monolingüe de lengua inglesa). Cuando uno comienza a dar entrada a una palabra, los dos diccionarios le ofrecen sugerencias. La DLE en línea no se las ofrece.
