It contains nearly 142,000 headwords, 109,000 idioms and phrases and 439,000 translations.

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, Polish-English Dictionary, edited by Jacek Fisiak, Arleta Adamska-Sałaciak, Piotr Gąsiorowski and Michał Jankowski, and published in two volumes by the Kosciuszko Foundation (New York) and Universitas (Krakow) in 2003. That Dictionary, in turn, was a much-awaited new incarnation of The Kosciuszko Foundation Dictionary, authored by Kazimierz Bulas, Francis J. Whitfield and Lawrence L. Thomas, and published almost half a century earlier (1959 English-Polish volume; 1961 Polish-English volume).

The Kosciuszko Foundation is located at 15 East 65th Street, New York, NY 10065
