William Kirkpatrick was a 18th-century officer in the East India Company. He lived and served many years in India where he became fluent in Persian and Arabic languages. In fact, his understanding of Persian earned him the military role of interpreter to Giles Stibbert, the Bengal commander. In 1782, Kirkpatrick began publishing translations of Persian military works which propelled him to publish a vocabulary of Persian and Arabic grammar. This book was supported and financed by the East India Company – a book which became popular in the Middle East, India, and in England.
