Help us write our French-English dictionary

The French-English Collaborative Dictionary gives you access to words and phrases added by users. In the general dictionary, provided by the world-famous publisher Collins, you will find common words and expressions, while the Collaborative Dictionary also features slang terms, technical translations, colloquial words and expressions, or regionalisms that are difficult to find in traditional online dictionaries.

A wide-ranging dictionary lookup tool

Using a single interface, you can display results from both the general and collaborative dictionaries! To make it easy for you to translate French words and expressions into English, you can search for the synonyms of a word, conjugate it, see its pronunciation, or even add another meaning to the French-English dictionary. All this by just clicking on the word.
