Question
Is there an English Latin Dictionary available? Is there Latin videos available with English subtitles on DVD?

Answer
Hello,

As an English Latin Dictionary, where you  can find essential vocabulary, clear translations, usage and grammar help, I could  suggest the Pocket Oxford Latin Dictionary edited by James Morwood.
It is a shorter, more accessible and less expensive dictionary of the Oxford Latin Dictionary which  is the world's most authoritative dictionary of classical Latin, with comprehensive coverage of the language from its beginnings until AD 200.
See http://www.amazon.it/Pocket-Oxford-Latin-Dictionary-Morwood/dp/019861005X/ref=sr


Also, there is an online dictionary, i.e. William Whitaker's Words, with Latin to English and English to Latin sections.
See http://archives.nd.edu/words.html


Another online dictionary  is Charlton T. Lewis, Charles Short, A Latin Dictionary, where you must type in a single Latin word  in order to have the English translation, but you cannot type in a single  English word  in order to have the Latin translation.
See http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/resolveform?redirect=true&lang=Latin


As for Latin videos with English subtitles on DVD, Iím sorry, but there is none which could be trustworthy.

Best regards,
