Last month I wrote a post about the new French - Interlingua dictionary that is quite huge, with a total of 50,000 entries. now has a notice that the dictionary is going to be available in paper format as well, for 30€.

I'm of the opinion that publishing works on actual paper is very important for an international auxiliary language that wants to be taken seriously, because there's a certain gravitas to a real book that you can't get any other way, and it's often the only way to impress those who have any real influence (=generally pretty old people). Here's what the notice says with my translation below:

Le grande dictionario francese-interlingua con quasi 52.000 entratas non solmente existe in un version electronic ci in On pote anque comprar lo como un libro sur papiro.
The large French-Interlingua dictionary with almost 52,000 entries doesn't just exist in an electronic version here on One can also buy is as a book on paper.

Le dictionario es le plus grande publicate usque hodie in francese, e illo anque es inter le plus grande dictionarios de interlingua del toto. Illo contine 325 paginas in formato A4 con texto in tres columnas. Illo va haber un copertura colorate e plastificate e un dorso anellate. Le precio es 30 euros plus le porto postal.
