Russian to English dictionary

Does anybody know any good online Russian to English dictionaries? Sometimes I get stuck on some words and unfortunately I don't have one.

    I usually use Yandex Dictionaries. However, they're aimed at Russian speakers so they might be not very convenient for learners (for example, the user is expected to know the declinations of the Russian words, so these are not marked in any way).

    I use the Wiktionary (https://en.wiktionary.org/); also to look up declensions, conjugations and the like.

    *I regularly use Google Translate. It's great because you can translate whole sentences in it. But it's not always very accurate:

    https://translate.google.com/

    *Lingvo is another good option. It enables you to look up the words and returns a very detailed translation. It also gives some examples for word usage: http://www.lingvo-online.ru/en/Examples/en-ru

    You might try www.dictionaryboss.com. I have found it very useful. It is an extension for Google and is cleared by my Norton virus checker.

    I usually write down the words in a notebook, and then when there is a special something to it (like masculine or feminine), I write that down once I got the word, and the translated part.

    Yes, I usually have a notebook around and write new words with their translation, and after an hour or two I arrange them in tables

    Lingov is good. Note: I am familiar with a commercial copy of this dictionary, but this online version seems to work fine.

    For when you use other sites you may want to add a browser extension that translates individual words when you click on them. The one I like for the Chrome browser (for me it is more convenient than what is provided by Lingvo) is called TransOver. It is about as accurate as Google Translate--not great but good enough 80-85% of the time.

    Beside wiktionary that was already mentioned, I really like The Free Dictionary (thefreedictionary.com) and I used to use Forvo (forvo.com). They both have pronunciation records for each word and are multilingual. Really useful.

    I started to learn Greek. And Yes, the translation was the problem for me too. But I was advised to buy Abbyy Lingvo. This dictionary is very convenient because it allows you to immediately see the different forms of the word and when you work, you only need to put the mouse to the word on the Internet, in pdf, in Word and you will see the translation immediately.
