A Portuguese-English Dictionary

My view: This dictionary offers translation into English of thousands of words, with pronunciation tips, and some useful examples of when to use certain words. It has a very helpful pronunciation guide, as well as a list of verb conjugations which is very useful as well. This is a great reference, which is in between basic pocket dictionaries and native Portuguese dictionaries. It does not translate from English into Portuguese though.
