Summary
The Oxford-Hachette Franch Dictionary is the first bilingual dictionary to be compiled entirely from electronic databases of current language, making it the most comprehensive, reliable, and up-to-date reference available. The new edition provides the most recent vocabulary for both French and English, as well as additional new supplementary material, most notably, a new encyclopedic supplement that provides a wealth of information on French society and culture, including famous places, regions, acronyms, institutions, film, politics, much more.
Of course, the Hachette still provides the most comprehensive coverage available of the general, scientific, and technical vocabulary of contemporary French and English--with 355,000 words and phrases and over 540,000 translations. As an aid to students of French literature, the dictionary provides excellent coverage of vocabulary used by writers such as Zola, Dumas, Proust, and Hugo. There is also over 90 pages of practical guidance for those who plan to reside in France, including over 100 model letters and postcards, help in writing job applications and CVs, and a completely new section on using the telephone in France.
With more words and phrases than any other single-volume French dictionary, plus special features designed to help both students and travelers, the new edition of The Oxford Hachette French Dictionary remains the first choice in bilingual dictionaries.
