First of its kind published by Oxford, it draws upon the Press's rich and varied tradition of publishing trusted dictionaries throughout the world.All Oxford bilingual dictionaries are thoughtfully designed in order to facilitate a greater understanding of the English language through the language in which the translated definitions are given.
