Kunnskapsforlaget's English Comprehensive Dictionary
The dictionary is indisputably the largest and most advanced dictionary to and from English for Android devices in the Norwegian market. The Norwegian-English dictionary contains more than 95,000 headwords and phrases and 204,000 translations. The English-Norwegian dictionary contains 124,000 headwords and phrases and 320,000 translations. It contains British English as well as American English.
About 40,000 of the English words contain pronunciation, so that you can hear the word simply by touching the loudspeaker icon. The pronunciations have been recorded by English native speakers.
In spite of its size the dictionary performs searches promptly, and the word you type emerges on a list as you gradually are keying in the letters. As the word you are searching for appears in the word list, you can immediately see the translation.
If the word has several meanings, or you would like to see more details about it, you can touch the word and see all the details - e.g. other possible translations, phrases and text examples, inflected forms etc.
You can search with wildcards: ? for an arbitrary letter; * for 0 or more arbitrary letters.
Also see the screen dumps, which show examples of the many different types of information you get in the dictionary.
Note: The download is done in two stages. The download time depends on the speed of your Internet connection.
