This review article deals with a specialised dictionary recently introduced to the Danish market. It covers traditional business subjects and is designed for semi-experts and laypeople. Through Danish definitions and English, French and German equivalents, it aims at fulfilling the functions text reception, text production, translation and knowledge acquisition. The main aspects addressed are presentation of lemmata, structure and presentation of definitions, grammatical information and diasystematic labelling and their relation to the functions of the dictionary. The general impression is that the lexicographic work leaves much to be desired, and that the dictionary can be recommended for text reception and knowledge acquisition, whereas it cannot be recommended for text production and translation.
