SIERRA SORIANO, Ascensión. Translation of Military Vocabulary from French into Spanish: An Analysis for its Lexicographic Treatment. Rev. Cient. Gen. José María Córdova [online]. 2012, vol.10, n.10, pp.217-234. ISSN 1900-6586.

The incorporation of Spanish military forces in international operations has increased the need for translation services in order to achieve precise and indispensable communication between the members of different armies. While there exist a few dictionaries which translate military vocabulary from English into Spanish, there are none from French into Spanish.

In this paper we analyzed the lexicographic treatment given to military vocabulary in this kind of dictionary, its inclusion and translation, and we evaluated the proposed equivalences

Keywords : Translation; bilingual lexicography; military vocabulary.
