Grand Dictionnaire Terminologique

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Danielle Trudeau (Faculty), Feb 12, 2002
Comment: This online version of the OLF famous bilingual technical dictionary (from
Quebec) is an important resource for courses dealing with technical or
specialized vocabulary. I use it mainly in advanced and graduate courses in
translation and multimedia resources. One may search for words in English or in
French. The search engine retrieves the fields or domains of application of the
words, provides translations, closely related words and "expressions to be
avoided" - which are often literal translations. Comments on usage show how French Canadian usage differs from metropolitan French usage. For an example see the discussion on "mel" and "courriel".
