http://dictionary.reference.com/
It is an English dictionary which I personally use daily and has proven to be a really good help. With every result it also gives synonyms, related searches and words, nearby words, origin and thoroughly explains the word itself.
I also use a little Estonian-English-Estonian dictionary http://www.tomahook.net/ but sometimes it does not give the search results.

http://www.thefreedictionary.com/ It is an good dictionary in cases to define a word. It gives usually different kinds of definitions, and don´t forget the variety of uses. On this dictionary page there is also a separated dictionary to explain medical, legal and financial words as well as there´s also separated pages to find acronyms, idioms and enclycopedia. This is very useful when you have a certain word or an intended use of it in your mind and you want to chek something about it. And, there is also possible to listen how each word is pronounceh :) I found this page newly, but I think it can be useful!

http://www.sanakirja.org/search.php?q=phylum&l=3 is a Finnish language based dictionary, which is from the teachers list "online dictionaries". On my opinion, this online dictionary is very easy to use and it gives all the different variances of one word. You can also verify the words meaning when you click your chosen translate variant. It gives you again more choices in English, so this dictionary may be helpful, when you need to precisely specify one word.
This online dictionary gives examples of phrases, where the word can be used, different forms of the word and also different definitions. I think this online dictionary is very helpful.

A comment on http://dictionary.cambridge.org/.

Explaining the words in English, this dictionary contains enormous amount of words and also offers British and American pronunciation, synonyms and related words. It provides examples and help with grammar as well. In case the searched word is not spelled correctly, the program finds out similar words. I consider it to be fast and convenient to use!

http://www.latin-dictionary.org/JM-Latin-English-Dictionary/
This dictionary translates Latin terms to English. On the same page there is links to other Latin-English dictionaries and you can expand your search process through them too. Mainly this site provides cultural and linguistic terms but there are also included many anatomical terms. I found it easy to use because of the possibility to a letter list.

http://www.medterms.com/script/main/hp.asp
This dictionary is for medical terms so it's a good for specific use. It gives your multiple choices for one term when you use search and that's why it is good. I'ts also relaiable. You can find term both in english and in latin. If you misspell some word, it gives you options what the word could be.

I would like to comment www.kaannos.com added by Marie Münster. I found finnish-english useful in everyday language but it is very limited in medical vocabulary. Also estonian-english was helpful but a little bit narrower than the finnish-english.

I'll comment the digtionary "vetmed.wsu" added by Sanna Männistö. The dictionary explanes english medical words. It's very simple to use, you can see all the words on the front page alphabetically. The words are explaned clearly and shortly. The digtionary is quite comprehensive. Negativ thing is that the dictionary doesn't translate the words, it only explanes them. And some of words are explaned in a quite difficult way and someone might need to use some other dictionary in order to understand the meaning of the word.

I would like to comment the dictionary added by Roosa Hentunen and Katariina Haukijärvi (http://www.medterms.com/script/main/hp.asp). I havent seen this page before. When testing this page now, I thought it could be useful during studies. It was easy to use. There was several options given, so you can self decide wich one would be best for your use.

Dictionary http://www.thefreedictionary.com/ added by Nina Höglund. Its easy to use. There is different category for medicine etc. Words are not translated, but explanations are given. Its pleasant that by one click you can check word or phrase out in Google or Bing.

Julia Permikangas
November 11, 2011

The dictionary I use the most is http://translate.google.fi/ even though when using it you really need to be careful. All the options the dictionary gives aren't useful. I usually check some basic things like spelling and for that Google's translator works well. It has different language options. I like to use some other online dictionaries together with it like sanakirja.org.

Dagni-Alice Viidu
November 11, 2011

Dictionary added by Nina Höglund: http://www.thefreedictionary.com/ . Although it is English-English dictionary, it was the most helpful one from the dictionaries I looked through. In the medical section you can easily find a meaning for a medical word or phrase, listen to its pronunciation and see the latin word it derives from.
There are also other interesting specialised sections, e.g. financial dictionary.

http://www.tohtori.fi/laakarikirja/ A medical dictionary that has finnish-english, finnish-swedish, and finnish-latin translations. I find it usefull not only because of the translations, but also because every term has a small description containing the main issues if it is other than just a bone, for example.

Roosa Tervonen
November 12, 2011

http://webcgi.oulu.fi/kielikeskus/o/medic/ It is a medical dictionary that has translations from English to Finnish. You can also check pronunciation of the word from the page. It is useful if you have to translate English into Finnish and it is also very easy to use.

Olli Saalasti

Medical dictionary that Paavo added (http://www.tohtori.fi/laakarikirja/ A medical dictionary) is very usefull because of the latin-finnish translations and descriptions. I find out that dictionary is also quite large so it is quite easy to find inforamtion.

Pillerin Paukson

English dictionary that Grete added (http://dictionary.reference.com/) is very useful because it explaines different meaning of the word and also gives examples of phrases where the word can be used. It is helpful that you can also listen correct pronounciation of the word.

Dictionary that was added by Roosa and Katariina (http://www.medterms.com/script/main/hp.asp) seems very good for us who have just started learning latin and anatomy. There are many options given and it is almost impossible not to find what you need. Also those explanations are easy to understand.

It`s a useful multilingual dictionary. I`ve used it for a long time and like it for its simplicity in use. It is very convenient that the dictionary gives examples of fixed expressions and sentences. Moreover, you can listen to the pronunciation of some difficult English words. This dictionary is very useful for Russian-speaking students.

Comment on onelook.com. A very good english-english dictionary in my oppinion, which I have used for a few years myself. Includes lots of general dictionaries as well as specific ones on Art, Business, Computing, Medicine, Religion, Science, Slang, Sports, Technology. Also possible to use a reverse dictionary function, when one knows the definition of a word but not the word itself.

Comment on the Medical Dictionary added by Sini (http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/mplusdictionary.html)
This is a great English-English dictionary which can be used not for translation but for understanding the meanings of certain medical terms. This could be useful if someone is doing a research or just reading medical materials in English. It is easy to use it and the paraphrases given are short and exact and the dictionary also shows you terms related to the one(s) you have entered.

Comment on medical dictionary: http://www.merriam-webster.com/medlineplus/. The purpose is to give accurate meaning to main medical words by explaining in clear english language. In addition you can listen to the pronunciation and take a look to the illustration, wich i find is significant surplus value. Web-page is very clear and clean, no ads or any other distractions.

I would like to post a comment on the dictionary added by Anne-Mari Ahola-Olli and Anna-Reeta Aalto. The dictionary seems really versatile even when looking for medical terms. The great little detail on it is that you do not have to determine the languages, the dictionary will find all the matching words for your word from both languages.The only con is that the languages are only finnish and english, it would be great to have this kind of dictionary on many other languages too!

I found this dictionary that is actually a place where you can find free online dictionaries for all languages. It is a little hard to use at first, but once you search a little and get used to it, it seems like a very useful website to look for translations or online dictionaries. It is called "The free dictionaries project" and that is seems to be :)

Wolfram Alpha is not a common dictionary. It's more of an online encyclopedia(very good for Maths, Chemistry etc), but it's very good for defining even very rare words. The definitions are in English, but I think they are not difficult to understand.

But commonly the translation is inaccurate.

I really enjoy using this dictionary. I have used it many times before. It's mainly an English-English expounding dictionary, but there are few other languages available. I like that this dictionary excplains what the word meant in different contexts, how to pronounce it (you can hear it), where this word comes from and so on. It's very informative dictionary.
