translation dictionary

Save This Word!

noun
a dictionary that translates words from one language to another, as a bilingual dictionary, or to several languages, as a multilingual dictionary. Bilingual dictionaries published as print books are often divided into two separate sections, one giving translations, for example, from French words to their English meanings and the other translating from English words to their French equivalents. Multilingual dictionaries tend to show translations into multiple languages across a two-page spread.
