Question
Hello Mr. Gary,

WOuld you mind telling me an authentic online dictionary and translator for the russian language. or any cool related W.sites ?

Of course I'm aware of the fact that it can't replace a real professional translator because I'm a musician! A robot can't replace a pianist
Thanks in advance,

armin

Answer
The main problem with online dictionaries is that their content is user-supplied. Nevertheless, I use them at times
because I think I can choose the best possible definition from among the choices given.

I have loads of printed (thus, edited) dictionaries, and use them.

That said, I like http://www.multitran.ru/c/m.exe?a=1&SHL=2 and

http://www.lingvo-online.ru/ru

Regards,
Gary
