Professor Erich Gruen, Chair of the Ancient History and Mediterranean Archaeology Graduate Program at the University of California at Berkeley, had praised the much smaller pre-Web German-English Dictionary in 1993 as "an impressive piece of work" and "a valuable tool for the training of Egyptologists". Four other professors of the interdisciplinary program coming from the Classics and Near Eastern Studies Departments agreed.

Feedback needed

Access to the dictionaries is free but it would be helpful to know which dictionary you are using, what books or articles you are translating and/or what topic, time period, country you are researching. The feedback is used only to determine the vocabulary to be included in the future and what works will be translated. Questions and comments are welcome as well as recommendations for public domain books or articles that should be translated into English. Please send an e-mail to Andrea at archydictionaries@att.net.
