The distinctive feature of the Dictionary is that it is based on American English, although characteristic British usage, as well as forms typical of other varieties of English, have also been noted. The richness of lexical information, including not only everyday expressions, but also technical terminology, literary language, and archaic vocabulary, makes the dictionary an indispensable tool in the hands of both English and Polish speakers, irrespective of their degree of proficiency in the other language.
The present dictionary app is a new digital version of the revised New Kosciuszko Foundation English - Polish Dictionary, edited by Jacek Fisiak, Arleta Adamska-Salaciak, Piotr Gasiorowski and Michal Jankowski, and published in two volumes by the Kosciuszko Foundation (New York) and Universitas (Kraków) in 2003.
The following people, all associated with the Faculty of English of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan, have contributed to this edition: Arleta Adamska-Salaciak (editor-in-chief), Michal Jankowski (technical editor); and lexicographers: Agnieszka A. Apenuvor, Renata Budzynska, Marta Grochocka-Sidorowicz, Magdalena Perdek, Sylwia Wojciechowska, Malgorzata Zawilinska-Janas. The compilation of the Dictionary was financed principally from the funds of the Kosciuszko Foundation and a grant from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Poland.
Founded in 1925, the Kosciuszko Foundation promotes closer ties between Poland and the United States through educational, scientific and cultural exchanges. It awards up to $1 million annually in fellowships and grants to graduate students, scholars, scientists, professionals, and artists, and promotes Polish culture in America.
All proceeds from the sale of the Dictionary will be used to further the KF’s educational and cultural programs and activities.

Ratings and Reviews
After install I ran it on a Mac Pro using the latest El Capitan. It is remarkably unstable. It caused flickering in menus raised from the dock and the menus wouldn’t remain when the icon was released. Also, other apps would not start properly, or when started, couldn’t be shut down easily. I didn’t wait to see what other nasty surprises were there. Fortunately, I took a full clone of the system before install, and was able to resore to perfect condition. Stay away from this one!
By the way, the free version is pretty much useless - tiny word list of Polish to English only.
