This second edition of A Comprehensive Indonesian-English Dictionary brings the highly successful first edition up to date with hundreds of new entries in business, law, and finance, as well as specialized terminology in the fields of technology, engineering, mining, and construction.

Based on five years of research, including input from users, this new edition offers readers the most current information on names of political parties, acronyms for government offices, Islamic terms, colloquial pronunciations, and abbreviated forms used in blogs and e-mail. As with the original edition, the dictionary is designed to be as user-friendly as possible. Root words, meanings, proverbs, idioms, compounds that begin with the root word, and derivatives are given. Thousands of sample sentences from primary sources illustrate meaning and usage; no sentences are invented, ensuring complete authenticity and reliability. The new edition, accompanied by a CD-ROM, is essential for reference libraries, as well as students and scholars of Indonesian.
