Shogakukan Robert Grand French-Japanese Dictionary contains a total of 120,000 entries, including 60,000 general terms, 40,000 technical terms, neologisms, abbreviations, colloquialisms and jargon. While words no longer in use today are excluded, neologisms and new definitions are substantially expanded. For technical terms, specialists in various fields are consulted to provide accurate translation and commentary.
This Dictionary also uses diverse sources such as topical articles from newspapers and magazines to provide the most appropriate, contextual usage examples regardless of their length. At the linguistic level, not only “standard” French but colloquialisms, abbreviations and verlan words are included.
The JapanKnowledge edition is especially prepared to render the information easy to understand for the user. Parts of speech and technical terms are fully written out instead of abbreviated. Each usage example is shown on its own line. Audio pronunciation is also provided for about 4,800 heading words. Idiomatic phrases and compound words can be searched as heading words.
