Oxford Language Dictionaries Online has new content and new functionality:
NEW LANGUAGES: RUSSIAN AND CHINESE
The wait is over! Russian and Chinese are both now available as a part of your Oxford Language Dictionaries Online subscription, meaning that you now have access to over 4 million words, translations and phrases as part of this outstanding service. Learners of Russian and Chinese can now take advantage of a full suite of learning support materials and OLDO’s acclaimed functionality – including the virtual keyboard, mouse-over pronunciations, and more!
Oxford is also delighted to announce the launch of native speaker audio pronunciation, allowing users to hear how words actually sound with correct stress and intonation. Pronunciation is available for headwords in every language (available for French, German, Italian, Russian, Chinese, British English, American English and Mexican Spanish), including Chinese and Russian. To access the pronunciations simply click on the loudspeaker icon next to the appropriate word on the entry page. (Click here for an example.) If you are having trouble hearing the audio files, please consult Help to ensure that your browser is configured correctly.
No action is necessary on your part to receive access to Russian, Chinese, or the audio pronunciation - it has been made available automatically as part of your existing subscription. When you login to Oxford Language Dictionaries Online you will now see Russian and Chinese available next to French, Italian, Spanish, and German, and the loudspeaker icon will automatically appear within entry text.
