"I have written research reports for several publishers, including Oxford University Press, Collins, Cengage in the US, and of course, Pearson, on the future of dictionaries in the electronic world. I have a lot of experience in doing research with users, and a lot of experience negotiating contracts with handheld and online companies. Drawing on my contacts in Japan, consumer and educational groups were researched using questionnaires and focus groups in Japan and the UK. We were able to compare their preferences for online, handheld, and DVD dictionary formats as opposed to traditional paper dictionaries, which produced some interesting findings." Della
"I cannot imagine that there is anything that Della does not know about dictionaries. I worked with her on contractual matters and always found her to be an excellent client to work with. Now she is an independent consultant in the field of dictionaries, I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone who needs her vast experience and expertise."
