Council of Europe French-English Legal Dictionary

For anyone who has recently starting working in the language pair French to English, or those who might not already have heard of it, the Council of Europe French-English Legal dictionary by F.H.S. Bridge, published in 1998, is a well-known and highly regarded resource.

The dictionary contains some 11,000 entries. One of the best things about it from my point of view is the layout – most words are given as a kind of heading showing words below that often collocate with it, as you can see from the image below – just click to enlarge.

All that’s needed now is an electronic version!! However, according to the last news I had, there are no plans to do that for the moment.

It is available from the Council of Europe online bookshop here.
