The International Maritime Dictionary - IMD is a Maritime English Dictionary about navigation, engineering, safety, communication, inland navigation, chartering, insurance and logistics.
The IMD provides translations of English maritime-related idioms and expressions into the five languages most frequently used in the international seafaring world:

In the world of international logistics it will form a new and formidable tool that will enhance the quality of communication and safety in the maritime industry, particularly for shipboard practices on board vessels that have multi-lingual crews.
