I am looking a bilingual French-English dictionary that I can use on my Amazon Kindle Paperwhite. I try to read the French newspaper Le Monde on my Kindle, but there are words that I don't understand. I have a French monolingual dictionary, but I don't always understand the definitions. Furthermore, it doesn't find inflected forms (especially verbs) or contractions.

So I'm looking for a French-English dictionary for the Kindle which:

  • can be used conveniently while reading a newspaper;
  • has entries for inflected forms.

This question came from our site for students, teachers, and linguists wanting to discuss the finer points of the French language.

That would be tough considering the constraints of the Kindle. What device are you using? – Patrick Sebastien May 22 '14 at 12:07
Merci! J'ai une Kindle Paperwhite. – KSUM May 23 '14 at 1:33
Les logiciels sont hors sujet ici, même si ils ont un vague rapport avec la langue française. Le sujet du site French Language, c'est la langue française. Je migre cette question vers un site où elle est acceptable, à condition de traduire en anglais. – Gilles Jun 21 '14 at 18:14
@Gilles Btw you are welcome to cast your opinion on Are dictionaries off-topic? – Franck Dernoncourt Jun 21 '14 at 19:38

The Collins French to English Dictionary looks good. You can set it as the default dictionary, this way you'll be able to see definitions while you're reading something. You can also browse it like a normal dictionary.
