Don't forget, with all Latin modules you can read texts and translations side by side and look up words in the Oxford Latin Dictionary --the leading Latin dictionary exclusive to OSEO. If you want to focus only on the Latin texts then you can access the classics wing through a convenient side door at, which restricts all searches to the Latin content.
