How about Oxford or Merriam's dictionary... They are the ones I usually used.

For Japanese people typically use edict based dictionaries such as https://jisho.org/


I would love to know what dictionaries Spanish learners prefer.

For Spanish, I suggest adding both:


http://dle.rae.es/

http://www.wordreference.com/


Reason: For reading literature, a dictionary including advanced words is needed to avoid the annoyance of 'translation not found'. Also, it is very important to include dictionaries that would work for intermediate or advanced reading material. Hence the RAE. I would also add wordreference as I see it as highly accurate and almost indispensible. https://es.thefreedictionary.com/ is another good option that seems to pull from RAE but also includes some bilingual synonyms.

I always use this for Spanish (especially when looking up phrases rather than words).

I find it extremely useful for seeing not only translations but how often a word is used in a given context and also if word has another common useage.

Hi there. I’ve noticed there are no supported dictionaries for German at the moment. I would recommend these to start with:


https://dict.leo.org/german-english

https://en.pons.com/

https://tureng.com/en/german-english/

I also suggest: https://www.english-corpora.org/coca/. Corpora are a great tool for speaking/writing native-like. They are based on deep research regarding the spoken language, so they are, most of times, more trustful than the ordinary dictionaries, I mean, when you consider Use of English skills.

While this is a useful resource, it isn't a dictionary or at least it's not the type that will work in the reading tool.

Glosbe is a good multilingual corpus but corpora have their own problems, even if they did work in the tool, I'm not sure I'd recommend them just for the fact that they're prone to some idiosyncratic usages and errors. We can always keep our own dict open in pop up form for it I reckon so if we did want to use a corpus, we could! :D Maybe a list of corpora is due in the near future for advanced users.

Can we add 

  • Glosbe (https://glosbe/tr/ru/{word} , https://glosbe/tr/en/{word} , etc)
  • Tureng (https://tureng.com/en/turkish-english/{word}

for Turkish?


P.S. Glosbe is really good, for all languages I've seen - German/Russian/English too.


UPD. Glosbe has x-frame check (that is, it refuses to open in an iframe), but it is possible to use an addon to remove these x-frame headers in the HTTP request. For example "Ignore X-Frame headers". Note, that it is dangerous per se (you should totally understand what you are doing, 146%), but it is possible.

Thanks!


May be it is possible to allow users to add their own dictionaries, say, like in readlang? Or is it too diificult, dangerous, or counterintuitive?

It would be too dangerous as it is. It is just JavaScript ran on the servers to compute the urls so it could easily be abused. We can add them quickly however.

Can you please fix the text direction? When I read Hebrew texts numbers or random English words like BBC are right to left.
