Sanskrit Dictionaries and Materials

Persian Dictionaries:

  • Steingass (Persian to English). I recommend typing in Perso-Arabic script.
  • Dehkhoda (Persian to Persian) is the largest Persian dictionary ever published. He often also gives poetic examples of particular words (also here).

There's an App for that!

  • Living as we do in an age of amazing technology, there are an increasing number of apps that can help you with Sanskrit, Persian, and many other languages. A few favorites here--
  • Sanskrit--iphone: Sanskrit Dictionary that includes Apte, Macdonell and Monier-Williams
  • Sanskrit--all platforms: Stardict
