When meeting colleagues in person, we invariably talk shop within seconds. Obviously that’s hardly surprising, yet I am often taken aback by just how quickly mention of Linguee can crop up in the conversation. For many it seems to be the first port of call when a term in their translation has them stumped. For me, however, even though my Google searches often return a number of Linguee hits, it’s a site I now largely ignore (and judging by a conversation I had on Twitter yesterday, I’m not alone). Perhaps Linguee is better for some language combinations than others (mine is Spanish to English), but since I discovered Reverso, I haven’t really looked back.
