I am looking for a very large Italian to English dictionary, intended for a professional translator, on a CD. Something like French-English Termium, which has 3 million entries, and much larger than the 2,300 page Harper Collins Sansoni I have in form of a book. Does anything like this exist and if so, where can I buy it? I would appreciate your recommendations

Picchi (Hoepli) Sep 20, 2005

Currently the most complete Italian-English-Italian general dictionary on CD available is Fernando Picchi's, published by Hoepli:

You can try Picchi online:

The EN-IT part is excellent. I have never heard of anything comparable to Termium though.

Hoepli (the bookshop) recommended Garzanti! Sep 20, 2005

The reason was that I wanted a dictionary to install rather than having to insert and consult the CD. One year ago, they told me in via Hoepli that Garzanti was the only one. I'm always on the look out for a better one, though.

There are programs that permit you to do that Sep 20, 2005

You'll need to search in past threads, but sugThere are programs (I think one of them is called Virtual CD - I'm not sure because I don't use them myself) that permit to install CD's that are not designed to be installed.

If search on past threads, you should be able to find something: I recall several discussions and suggestions about such programs.

If you want to compare Picchi's to Garzanti, Garzanti's dictionary can be used online, too:
