Try www.babylon.com. You can find there lots of dictionaries and glossaries, including military. The problem is I don't know if they are free (anyway, trial version can be used). Good luck!

Technical dictionary Dec 2, 2003

This is a very vast field. So it depends on what type of weapon you are interested in.

I generally find the Marolli very helpful:
Dizionario tecnico IN-IT/IT-IN
di Giorgio Marolli
HOEPLI editore.

Brassey's Multilingual Military Dictionary (Paperback) Dec 2, 2003

Greetings.

You might try this handy reference:

Brassey's Multilingual Military Dictionary (Paperback edition)

Should be available from < amazon.com >, or you can find it via a web search.

The US distributor for Brassey's (UK publisher) is located in Virginia, as I recall.

As another poster kindly mentioned, you might be more specific about mentioning particular subjects of your interest, as the generic category of "military" is very large and diversified.

HTH.

TOPIC STARTER
thanks Dec 3, 2003

thanks, everybody!
The reason why I wasn't as precise as I should have been, is that it is a friend of mine who needs this military dictionary/glossary. She asked me, and since I didn't know... I asked you. But I don't know much about what it is that she actually needs. She's translating some stuff about women in armed forces and the text contains lots of acronyms and words indicating ranks and stuff like that.
Thanks again!
