This is the best portable and up-to-date Arabic-English/English-Arabic dictionary I have been able to find in recent years. Yes, there are better dictionaries, but they are quite large (al Mawrid) and not practical to carry around in a backpack. The Hans Wehr is excellent but only goes from Arabic to English. I give this 4 stars for portability, modernity, and versatility. ( )
