Dear Finnish language experts

I am trying to find an English-Finnish dictionary for my colleagues in Finland. I have no idea which dictionaries are popular in Finland, so I was hoping to get some help in here.

As the dictionary will be used in a professional context it is, of course, important that it provides high-quality translations and covers a broad range of subject areas.

Thanks, Petri.

What about useful electronic or online dictionaries? Physical dictionaries just wouldn't work in an organisation of our size.

Best regards,
Barbara

Online dictionaries by Kielikone Nov 6, 2012

Here you can find a good range of online dictionaries http://www.kielikone.fi/en/
These are popular among Finnish translators and have proven to be relatively good. I do prefer using the specilised subject matter dictionaries along side the "general" dictionary.

Hi!

If you can settle with free online dictionaries, I can recommend these three:
glosbe.com/, www.eudict.com/ and www.iate.europa.eu.

All of them have a professional approach and you can find a lot of goodies; general, technical as well as medical terms in all of them.

Regards/ Paul
