Online woordenboeken

Post by Crecker » Wed Jun 25, 2014 3:19 pm

Hallo allemaal!

As helping material I use online dictionaries. I usually use Google Translate (which is not a dictionary, of course! But always useful...), VanDale.com and Mijnwoordenboek.nl.
The last one that I mentioned is very, very, very nice! But it doesn't seem to work anymore (I can't open it, can you?)! :( And VanDale.com is very restrictive...
So I wonder if you know any other online dictionaries which provide a large quantity of words and examples.

Thank you! :)

Unfortunately, I can't open it either. I hope it's just a temporary phenomenon, maybe they are just working on the site.
The other option, Van Dale Gratis Woordenboek simply freezes my computer so I'm not very happy these days...
Earlier I could use both dictionaries.

Er is ook een schat aan gegevens in het WNT, bijvoorbeeld http://www.wnt.inl.nl/iWDB/search?wdb=M ... L&id=17788 onderdeel van http://www.inl.nl/

En er is WikiWoordenboek, bijvoorbeeld https://nl.wiktionary.org/wiki/verslechteren

I hope that! That's a pity! Mijnwoordenboek.nl is a very good dictionary! :(

I can't understand how the first one works :( I should spend more time to understand maybe! :P The wiktionary is not exactly what I am looking for!

The option given by BurtallyFrank is very considerable! I have also found an Android app which works quite fine!

Anyway, thank you everybody for your help! :)
