Translator Dictionary + Thesaurus Phrasal verbs + Idioms Italian false friends

Sometimes an Italian word can be correctly translated by looking for similarities with English words, but in many cases the word has a different meaning.

False friends are Italian words which seem similar to an English word but have a different meaning. Some false friends have more than one translation between Italian and English, and so it is very important to recognise the different possible meanings of some English words compared to their Italian 'friend'.

This glossary lists the most problematic words and common false friends, and includes a section for feedback and comments.
