business dictionary

This bilingual dictionary (English-Macedonian, Macedonian-English) is the first of its kind in
the form of a mobile application. Its easy-to- use interface, functionality, and visually-appealing
nature make it an invaluable tool not only for translators but also for students and any person
involved in the business sphere. It requires Internet access. There are over 11.000 dictionary
entries, including collocations, phrases, national and international institutions and associations
(and their acronyms), and currencies. The coverage of fields is broad: accounting, auditing,
banking, finance, human resources, insurance, investments, management, marketing, sales,
statistics, and transport, among others, with the inclusion of legal terminology as well. This
dictionary is constantly being updated with additional entries and further enhancements. Its
creator is involved in the practical application of such vocabulary, through translating, as well as
in the educational aspect of it, through teaching Business English to University students.
