Since the publication of the first edition in 1983, the Shogakukan Italian-Japanese Dictionary, 2nd Edition, one of the largest and most complete Italian-Japanese dictionaries available on the market, has been fully revised for use in today’s rapidly-changing global environment.
The dictionary contains the latest terms and expressions from a wide range of fields, including politics, the economy, medicine, environmental issues, computers, soccer, and fashion. For important terms, this new edition has generous features that aid learning, such as supplementing corresponding English terms to facilitate comprehension of the meaning of Italian terms, and displaying related articles and specialist vocabulary in separate informative articles.
The JK edition also includes audio data for approximately 11,000 words. While it is naturally possible to make headword, full text and idiomatic phrase searches, it is also possible to make searches for important terms from the corresponding English term.
This is an authoritative Italian-Japanese dictionary that is unreservedly recommended for all people who have an interest in learning Italian.
