I would be grateful to anyone who could recommend, from personal experience, a reliable online dictionary (hopefully similar to Termium, Grand-Dictionnaire and so on) which has German and/or Spanish as one of its languages.

Many thanks in advance!

Following a request for clarification by Nacho: I am not looking for monolingual sources, but for bi/multilingual source that have ANY combination containing Spanish and/or German and/or French, and/or English. Hope this is a little clearer, sorry about the confusion.

Many thanks! Dan

Could you please clarify if you're looking for bilingual or monolingual dictionaries? Or are you looking for an online German/Spanish general dictionary?

Hi Dan,

If you're looking for specialised on-line terminology databases, I'm sure you're aware of Iate.

If you're looking for general bilingual dictionaries, my favourite is Pons. Here you can set many language combinations and directions between ES, GE, FR and EN, and more languages. For German/Spanish it is one of the best free on-line general dictionaries I've come across.

Hope it helps.
