He received his education at Berlin and Breslau, and was chiefly occupied in teaching until 1870, when he retired in order to devote himself to his literary pursuits. Besides classical school-books and some works on philology, he compiled an elaborate Latin dictionary in 4 volumes, the Wörterbuch der Lateinischen Sprache (1834–45), which has been the basis of the standard English-Latin dictionaries in the 19th century. It was translated into English by Ethan Allen Andrews in 1850 and revised (with Freund's own assistance) as the basis for Lewis and Short's A Latin Dictionary. He also wrote:
- Wie studiert man Philologie (sixth edition by Dieter, Stuttgart, 1903).
- Tafeln der Litteraturgeschichte (1877).
- Triennium Philologicum (third edition, 1906 et seq.).
- Präparationen zu den griechischen und römischen Klassikern, (a long work beginning in 1859)
- Wanderungen auf klassischem Boden (1889–92).
