New Latin Lati-English and English-Latin dictionaries

Postby Radek » Mon Feb 09, 2004 12:49 pm

I want to ask you: Are there any Latin-English and English-Latin good dictionaries.
But don`t to ancient latin but modern.
I read sometimes new latin from internet for example from GREX, but sometimes I have problems because some words aren`t in my dictionary.
The same problem I have when I want to write in latin. Old wards are in many exelent dictionaries, but modern?

I'm told that the best one is published by the Vatican, but I can't remember the title of it right now. Of course, it is Latin-Italian, which could pose a problem for those of us who don't know Italian!

The best lexica for neo-Latin with English translations are online.
If you want a real book, there is no good one published yet, there are a few periodics which give some words at the end.


The best online lexicon is the one of Florus;

There are also lits of computer terms in Latin etc. but I think you already know these sites.

Cassell's is a handy dictionary, but Perseus is better (if you are at your computer).
