    Hi everybody,

    Over the next couple of weeks, I will be making a number of changes in the dictionaries on WR. After a few good years, we are losing the Oxford dictionaries. In their place, we are promoting WR's own dictionaries to the top where applicable and adding Collins' excellent dictionaries. Actually, we are adding them back. We had Collins dictionaries for a number of years before they stopped licensing them to us in 2004.

    We are still in the middle of the transition. You can already see the new format in the (English to) French and Italian dictionaries. By the end of this week, I think everything will be in good shape. Specifically, I need to add in a couple of features: IPA pronunciation symbols at the top of the WR dictionaries, and a way to choose to see the Collins dictionaries first instead of the WR dictionaries.

    Once we are done with our transition this week, please let me know of any errors or other problems you see through the Contact Us form.
