Excellent resource., March 12, 2004
Reviewer: A reader
This is unsurpassed for a pocket dictionary. I have found few English/Croatian dictionaries to be as accurately translated or as in depth. Not perfect, but highly recommended -- and easy to carry around with you.

Excellent Pocket Size Traveler, August 12, 2003

Reviewer: A reader (Australia)

I also was in the region as a earlier poster puts it. With this Croatian or Hrvatski dictionary if you please. Firstly this Croatian dictionary is not favored to Serbian, this is blatantly untrue. As well as the fact that the official script/text for Serbian is Cyrillic. The earlier given example of bread as sensitive, which I checked in this Croatian dictionary, clearly shows the word "Kruh" ,which is the correct Croatian word for bread. In regards to lacking several words and explanation of others, I also suspect this to be untrue, because the earlier poster would be able to provide specific examples and clearly failed to provide evidence of this. I found this Croatian dictionary extremely thorough for its handy pocket size with over 30,000 entries.

Insensitive presentation, February 9, 2002
Reviewer: A reader
Since the breakup of Yugoslavia, the trend of Serbian and Croatian, or Serbo-Croatian, if you please, has been conscious differentiation. The lexicon is sensitive: words like "bread" "hleb" vs "kruh" are ethnically charged. This dictionary has no accounting for that whatsoever and can place the user in awkward positions. (As I experienced first-hand while travelling in the area.) The dictionary favors the Serb variations. Furthermore, the dictionary lacks several words and explanations of others. This is a great brand for Western Languages, but is not at all thorough enough for the sensitive speaker of Serbian and Croatian.

So-so, September 24, 2000

Reviewer: K. Gillies "kateling" (Columbus, MI United States)

This book is good for translating basic words and phrases. It is difficult to learn conversational Bosnian from this book, but I can pick out words. I work with a dozen or so Bosnians and they have helped me with my pronunciation. Bosnian-Croatian-Sebian languages are difficult to learn on your own. This book is convenient, my copy is very beat up from carrying it around in my pocket forever. It would be in your best interests to partner this book with a native speaker if available.

A Handy Reference, June 22, 2000

Reviewer: Stephanie Radawiec (Michigan)

This is a very small, but very useful book. It contains basic words for everyday communication. It also contains some short phrases/idioms.
