This dictionary lists over 8000 headwords on each side, totalling about 16,000 words. Because the series concentrates on the needs of travellers, the dictionary includes vocabulary of practical use to people travelling, staying, or living outside their native land. The author focuses on tourists, emigrants, and business people when compiling this list, but kept the employee of government and international organisations in mind as well. As a phonetic aid to the reader, pronunciation is facilitated using a simple transliteration system for both directions at once. The feminine and the neuter endings are listed in addition to the masculine ones.
