This translator is based on the
Late Proto-Indo-European Etymological Lexicon
by Fernando López-Menchero. The work contains correct usage of Late Proto-Indo-European words - with emphasis on North-West Indo-European lexicon-,

Pokorny's Indo-European Etymological
Dictionary is also available for reference as dictionary-translator.
The database was prepared as part of Academia Prisca's Indo-European Network
by Carlos Quiles
