David A. Phaires, Editor in Chief
For more than sixty years, The University of Chicago Spanish–English Dictionary has set the standard for concise bilingual dictionaries. Now thoroughly revised to reflect the most current vocabulary and usage, the 6th edition of this bestselling dictionary enables users to find the precise equivalents of the words and phrases they seek. Completely bilingual, the dictionary focuses on two contemporary international languages, American English and a worldwide Spanish rooted in both Latin American and Iberian sources.

The sixth edition has been updated with six thousand new words and meanings selected for their frequency of use, rising popularity, and situational necessity. In order to best represent the dynamic and increasingly connected cultures of three continents, this edition features enhanced coverage of four areas of global importance: medicine, business, digital technology, and sports.

And, coming soon, the Spanish-English Dictionary app for iPhone® and iPod® touch—a precise and practical app created from the sixth edition of the University of Chicago Spanish-English Dictionary. Browse or search the full contents, build your vocabulary by creating word lists, review terms you need to master with flash cards, and test yourself with multiple choice quizzes. Whether you are preparing for next week’s class or upcoming international travel, this app is the essential on-the-go reference. It will be available for download for $9.99 from the App Store SM in mid-October.

Whether on your shelf or on the go, The University of Chicago Spanish–English Dictionary is the essential reference for students, travelers, businesspeople, and everyone interested in building their linguistic proficiency in both Spanish and English.
