Responses from Oxford University Press 


Dear Mr. Bach:

For your files, copies of correspondence from Ruth Langley and Mike Clark of the Oxford University Press, in response to my letters of complaint re: lack of entry for "Croatia-Kroatien" in their English-German dictionary, and their entry of "Serbo-Croatian culture" under Dubrovnik in theirencyclopedia. 

Kind regards,
Allen Milcic

Dear Mr Milcic

Many thanks for your email of the 8th May concerning the entry on Dubrovnik
in the on-line World Encyclopedia. 

We are aware that this text is now out of date ( It wasnever correct, regardless of a date - Nenad Bach Op-ed) and in places erroneous, andhave therefore ceased publishing the print version and cancelled any future production of the online version. However, it seems that some old copies of
the online version surface on the market occasionally, despite our best
efforts.

We are currently in the process of producing a new edition of the
encyclopaedia and I will ensure that such entries are considered more
carefully in this revised work.
Please accept my sincere apologies for any
offence that this entry has caused and rest assured that we are doing
everything in our power to put it right.


Yours sincerely

Ruth Langley

Dear Mr Milcic

Many thanks for your email of 10 May concerning the lack of an entry for
Croatia or Kroatien in the IFinger version of the Concise Oxford-Duden
German Dictionary. 

Their absence is indeed an unfortunate oversight for which I must apologize.
Kroatien is in fact also missing from the print version of the dictionary,
but Croatia is certainly in the printed book and we are therefore puzzled as
to why there is no entry for it in the IFinger version and are investigating
urgently. I can assure you that there are entries for both Croatia and
Kroatien in all the other dictionaries in our Oxford-Duden German range,
including the smaller Pocket Oxford-Duden German Dictionary. We will of
course take the first opportunity to correct their omission from the IFinger
Concise. 

Please accept my sincere apologies for any offence that the absence of these
entries has caused and rest assured that we will be doing everything in our
power to put it right.

Yours sincerely

Mike Clark
