German Dictionary Hoepli

Entirely reworked and updated on the basis of the historical volume created by the Sansoni Lexicographic Center led by Vladimiro Macchi, this app provide a dictionary that responds to the need to follow the continuous evolution of the German language. As well as being a comprehensive and up-to-date German-Italian dictionary as far as specialist scientific terminology is concerned, it also provides a record of the linguistic heritage of both languages, including that of the forms of German spoken in Austria and Switzerland.

This new edition compiled by Edigeo has been expanded with a vast number of neologisms and idiomatic expressions. The dictionary meets the current needs of students and translators while preserving the terminology required for understanding literary classics and texts of the past. The work conforms to the rules of the 2006 spelling reform, but in the German-Italian section old spellings are also given, cross-referenced to the new spellings.
