Collins has been making dictionaries for
over 175 years and is one of
Europe’s leading dictionary and language publishers.
Collins dictionaries provide the sharpest snapshot of today’s languages. Collins lexicographers are alerted the moment a new word takes its place in common vocabulary. Their extensive and unparalleled 2.5 billion word database monitors a constant flow of text from publications, websites and transcripts from around the world.
This pioneering stance is upheld by Collins’ new range of resources in digital formats, enabling you to have the power of a Collins dictionary on your desktop, mobile phone or handheld – giving you the choice of how you use it. There is also a range of Collins phrasebooks and language courses for mobiles and iPods.
