《现代汉语词典》是中国第一部中大型汉语工具书,以确定词汇规范为目的,以推广普通话、促进汉语规范化为宗旨。这部现代汉语规范词典曾获第一届国家图书奖,至今发行已逾五千万册,以规范性、科学性和实用性为突出特点,在海内外享有盛誉。而《现代汉语词典(汉英双语版)》则根据母本《现代汉语词典2002年增补本》逐字翻译而成。汉英双语对照是本词典最大的特色之一。《现代汉语词典(汉英双语版)》收录的词条涵盖中国文化的各个方面,包括中国地理、中国文学、民俗、方言、典故、成语等等,配以恰当的英文对应词和解释,为中西方文化交流架设起又一座文化沟通的桥梁。

《现代汉语词典》除了在收词、释义、举例方面举世公认的权威性和几近完美的编纂体系之外,其他优点也不胜枚举,并在双语版中得以完整、创新地体现。例如,《现代汉语词典》对成语、掌故,不仅释义,而且注明其在古典著作中的出处,提供不常见的文言文原文,如今配上信达通畅的译文,使这个特点更加鲜明。利用有限的空间对词语加以尽可能详细的注释,是《现代汉语词典(汉英双语版)》成为意趣盎然、具有很高可读性的百科类词典。本词典具有一书二用的功能,既可充当一本汉语的《现代汉语词典》使用,又可作为一本汉英双语词典翻阅,无论你从事何种工作,它都会成为你的好帮手。
