Specialized Bilingual Dictionaries

Compiled by Craig Schroer

This bibliography offers a cross-section of bilingual dictionaries devoted to specific subjects or to those with special features (such as pictorial dictionaries) with a focus on those which are most up-to-date. In a few cases the items listed may not be recent but are deemed of significant value for other reasons (e.g., authoritative reference works which have not been updated). Bilingual dictionaries of a general nature are not included but may be located by searching the online catalog by subject under "Spanish language-Dictionaries-English;" "English language-Dictionaries-Portuguese;" etc.
