Whether you’re doing your homework or need some help with translating, it’s nice to have an online dictionary to help you. There are plenty of dictionary out there on the internet so it’s important to have one or two that you think works best for you. 
            Personally I’ve tried many dictionaries, but not all of them where good enough for me. Here are the three dictionaries I use when I need some help with translating :
·         Google Translate

When I have problems with translating by myself, or I wonder what something is in Spanish I use a dictionary that’s called EasyTrans. I can honestly say that EasyTrans is the best Spanish dictionary that I’ve ever used. Not only can it easily translate single words, but it can also show you how you conjugate verbs, which is very helpful when you for example have a Spanish test which contains conjugation of verbs. It’s also very precise, something that’s important for me.

Here you can see how EasyTrans looks like. I took the verb hacer\ to do to show you how it looks like. is an online Polish-Norwegian dictionary. I don’t use it so often but when I need some help with my Norwegian I use this one. I like it because it looks nice and it’s not complicated. It also translates quite well. Earlier I’ve used Google Translate as my Polish-Norwegian dictionary but it didn’t work at all. Don’t get me wrong, it worked for simple words such as dog, house or girl. But when I tried to translate something more difficult it was just pure nonsense.

 And finally, good old Google Translate. I only use Google Translate when I want to translate something from Norwegian\Polish to English, and vice versa. It’s very simple to use and performs very well. Nothing more, nothing less. 
It also have a little speaker icon where you can click to hear the right pronunciation.


  1. Well structured post about using dictionaries. I'm a little puzzled by the end thought. Do you use Google Translator or not? Because I agree with you, when you translate longer text it ends up pretty strange sometimes. The other dictionaries are good, I agree with you there.

  2. Great post! As Ann states, the post is well structured. I do also use Google Translate for french lesson. I really like the background too!
