The Great English-Polish Dictionary has been prepared by a team of linguists from the largest online dictionary, ling.pl, lead by Prof. Marcin Milkowski, Ph.D. and Prof. Dariusz Jemielniak, Ph.D. It is the largest English-Polish dictionary ever published. It contains over 1.8 million words, covering hundreds of thousands of meanings in over two hundred thousand definitions, includign abbreviations, synonyms, antonyms, et al. Its range is over 20% wider than in the case of any dictionary published before.
It is also the first English-Polish dictionary developed in the 21st century, basing on actual English language usage and frequencies (based on corpora of American, British, and Canadian English), covering not only general vocabulary, but also terminology and idioms typical for business, finance, law, medicine, the sciences and technology, including over 150 disciplines! It is the first English-Polish dictionary including words such as QWERTY, screenager, smartphone, tablet or boccia, with their proper pronunciation.
The dictionary can replace the standard Kindle e-reader dictionary, to allow one-click lookups (please, note that this functionality is typical for all Kindle e-readers, but not necessarily a tablet).

I read in English a lot and I've been in need of a good English-Polish dictionary for a while. This one is fantastic! Rarely any word is missing, and the definitions provided give not just the simplest meanings, but also the advanced ones (ok, I admit I am too lazy to click for "more" from the first screen most of the time, but when I do, I am really glad I did). One thing that would be really cool would be the possibility to save searched words and review them in a form of flashcards...
Comprehensive and broad English-Polish dictionary, perfect for non native English speakers. I am currently reading a quite technical, but at the same time colloquial book about motorcycles, written by a journalist. The dictionary helps me to understand the technical terms related to a motorcycle's behavior on the road as well as the less serious expressions related to some bikers' behavior and thoughts ;) If an expression is not obvious, I can easily switch to the monolingual Oxford dictionary and check the other meanings of these words, but apparently the list of terms in this English-Polish dictionary is exhaustive - this wasn't necessary so far.
Definitely the best English-Polish dictionary for Kindle there is. Very useful when dealing with vague or ambiguous definition often found in monolingual dictionaries. Congrats to the editors and two thumbs up!
