Japanese-English Electronic Dictionaries

Welcome to Japanese/English Electronic Dictionaries! I am guessing you are here because you are buying or considering buying a Japanese/English electronic dictionary. Well you have come to the right place! Compared to 2000 when I started my initial search, today there is more information about electronic dictionaries available in the Internet. Still, I believe this site is the most complete and informative resource on the Internet on the specific subject of Japanese/English electronic dictionaries. The many questions I receive from readers have helped me add to this site and make it even better for the next reader! So if you have a question or suggestion, or just a comment, feel free to send me an email.

Check out "Let your fingers do the talking", an article about electronic dictionaries, in the Aug/Sept 2005 issue of J-Select (p56). The author uses BornPlayDie.com as a key reference, paraphrasing many points I have made over the years.
