What are the best resources for professional Hebrew-English translators? Dictionaries, word lists, machine translation programs, etc. Online, offline, dead-tree all fine.

Do you mean modern or biblical Hebrew or both?

Best answer: Here is a word list by frequency that is pretty handy. You can limit the retrieval in various ways.

Also, I have to give a hearty second vote for the Morfix website mentioned above. For one thing, if you enter a verb in any form, it will figure out what verb you're looking for, rather than you having to figure out the root and hunt it down like you would in most print dictionaries. It's really awesome.

For a print dictionary, I use Alcalay.
