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.

We couldn't add https://dicionario.priberam.org/ because it isn't "publicly" available

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

We added the first one but were not able to add the second due to some complexity issues.

We've added it as a link however it's using a mechanism that isn't compatible with what we have. It'll just open the dictionary and you'll need to type the word yourself.

I tested it earlier and noted that. Still better than nothing and the dictionary is comprehensive! Thanks for adding it.

I find it particulary useful for Turkish, Romanian, French and Italian.


Thanks!

Hey Leo, I've just found your great site but I'm still struggling with one thing. I like to read with context reverso dictionary, but I tested with one passage but it only appears 2 dictionaries(oxford and merriam). How could I change the dictionary? And another question, it's possible to open the dictionary as soon as I click on the word I want to see the translation? I'm not sure if I made myself clear. Other than that, I simply loved everything here.

I don't know why the context reverso English dictionary isn't appearing; I have written a ticket.

Yes, just make your preferred dictionary the default. Select a word>dictionary icon>default. To reset, got to settings>clear default dictionary selection.
