Dictionaries are important and necessary resources for translators, but translators nevertheless have mixed feelings particularly about bilingual dictionaries. While on the one hand they cannot really work without them, bilingual dictionaries on the other hand often give translators little or no help. It also appears that bilingual dictionaries are an insufficient resource for professional translators when translating idioms. The translation of idioms entails more than just the translation of single words. In this article, a possible model is presented to help improve the treatment of idioms in bilingual dictionaries.

Woordeboeke is belangrike en noodsaaklike hulpmiddels vir vertalers, maar tog het baie vertalers gemengde gevoelens veral oor tweetalige woordeboeke. Terwyl hulle aan die een kant nie werklik daarsonder kan werk nie, bied tweetalige woordeboeke aan die ander kant dikwels vir vertalers min of geen leiding nie. Dit blyk ook dat tweetalige woordeboeke 'n onvoldoende hulpmiddel vir professionele vertalers by die vertaling van idiome is. Die vertaling van idiome behels meer as net die vertaling van enkelwoorde. In hierdie artikel word 'n moontlike model aangebied om die bewerking van idiome in tweetalige woordeboeke te help verbeter.
