May I remind all those who have such problems, that there exists
one _Bibliografia di Informatica Umanistica_ (ed. Giovanni
Adamo, Roma 1994). E.g., you can find under the nn. 890, 2800,
4407, 5272, 5365, items which fit Willard's request.

Also, in the web page of CISADU you find the "catalogo" of
the Biblioteca di Informatica Umanistica, with on-line
interrogation by subject (e.g. see Informatica generale,
Dizionari e enciclopedie).

Cordialmente, Tito Orlandi

I used to have a couple of printed dictionaries (or, more precisely, I
still have them but they fell off the edge of my desk, so to speak), none
too useful. Since these things age so quickly, and since I very rarely
(read never) have to translate computerese *from* German (sometimes
*into*, though), I haven't bought anything in that department for several
years. I know there are several on-line dictionaries some of which might
have a computer focus, but again, I'm not terribly au courant regarding
these either. Possible starting points might be these two (rather
slow-loading) lists:



A friend [Andreas] keeps a subscription to a surprisingly meaty German
computer mag [sorry, the name escapes me due to a momentary neuron
blackout], and that's where I usually turn when I need info about
up-to-date Teutonic compuspeak.
