The home of living language, with access to dictionary, thesaurus, grammar and video resources
Collins online dictionary and reference resources draw on the wealth of information about language that is part of Collins’ heritage. True to the innovative and pioneering spirit of the founder William Collins, Collins books are packed with inspiration, innovation and practical expertise. Having been publishing educational and informative books for over 200 years, Collins is a major publisher of Educational, Language and Geographic content. Collins offer reliable and authoritative information about language, thanks to the extensive use of our corpora - vast databases of language - both in English and in other languages. These databases allow experienced Collins lexicographers to analyse how language is really used, and monitor how language changes around the world. With the benefit of these corpora, our language specialists can be sure that they reflect accurate and authentic language throughout Collins dictionary and reference titles.
By keeping these pioneering values at the core of our publishing in print and in digital form, and by ensuring our monolingual and bilingual dictionaries, as well as our reference titles reflect language as it is used today, Collins remains the favourite choice amongst students, teachers and translators.
