Providing the richest coverage of Spanish from around the world, this major edition of the Oxford Spanish Dictionary now covers over 300,000 words and phrases, and more than 500,000 translations. This special combined book and CD-ROM set allows you to obtain the maximum benefits from the text. Oxford's expert teams of lexicographers have used the latest technology to search millions of words of web-based text and identify all the most recent additions to both Spanish and English. Over 20,000 new entries have been added to the dictionary from all aspects of life today - business, IT, science, the media, the environment, the Internet, and social life. Hundreds of special entries now give information on life and culture in the Spanish-speaking world, and in-text notes give extra help with grammar and usage. The dictionary also includes an extended guide to effective communication, including a wealth of example letters, offering help with a wide range of topics, from writing a job application or a CV to booking a hotel room. With a new, easy-access color design to make consultation even quicker, this is the most complete and up-to-date reference tool for anyone studying Spanish in senior school or at university, or for translators and other language professionals. In addition, the CD-ROM is packed full of great features which help you to find the information you need in seconds, plus the cutting edge technology of the new text to speech facility allows you to hear the text you have typed or cut and pasted spoken back to you in either European or Mexican Spanish.

From School Library Journal:
Beatriz Galimberti Jarman, Roy Russell, Carol Styles Carvajal, and Jane Horwood are expert bilingual lexicographers who have led a team of Spanish, Latin American, British, and American editors throughout this project.
Grade 7 Up--When the Oxford University Press produced the expanded second edition of its Spanish dictionary in 2001, it was broadened to include 275,000 words and phrases and contained 450,000 translations. The hefty tome covered both European and Mexican Spanish. This edition expands the second by 25,000 words (about half on each side of the dictionary) and 50,000 translations. To catch contemporary words and usages, a combination of Web-based technology and vetting by native speakers was employed, resulting in the addition of technological and business vocabulary, as well as slang and buzz words. Covering all 24 varieties of regional Spanish, the dictionary also sports a new layout, with words in blue and definitions in a clean, though small, black type. Cultural notes as well as boxes containing information on grammar and usage--such as phrasal verb forms--extend the coverage of the work. [...] Collections with the second edition of the Oxford or with other unabridged dictionaries such as the Collins Spanish-English, English-Spanish Dictionary (HarperCollins, 1997) may not need to add the third Oxford. However, given the comprehensive coverage, it is worth consideration for most libraries.--Ann Welton, Grant Elementary School, Tacoma, WA
