Hello everyone, this is an important announcement so please read. People who join Language Tools on or after June 1, 2020 will have to pay $5/month for a premium membership to use the Reading Tool in its fullest capacity. Current members, and those who join before June 1, will be free premium members for life. So please tell your friends, especially those who have been considering joining, that this is the best time.


Free members who join after June 1 and use the Reading Tool will still be able to read the text and listen to the audio, but won’t be able to use the mouse-over dictionary, get definitions by clicking words, import/export vocabulary, etc. 


Not only is the reading tool extremely convenient for reading any article you want to upload, but we also have lots of material in the library, and it grows daily. Non-members can now browse the library without having to join: https://languagetools.io/reading


Thanks for being part of Language Tools!

I support all of these changes. The account wall made a lot of potential users angry on reddit and discord, and the 5 USD fee is still a fraction of many language apps! Thanks for growing the library! I hope in the future we get added mobile support! Great work Leo.

 I don't use the paid functions but thank you for the free account. 

My thoughts.

People should be able to test the system for free.

An option to freeze payment and account would be great (once a year or for the number of months you paid in the last 12 months).

I don't like the idea to pay forever. Maybe an option to purchase an unlimited account after 50 paid months or something.

Good luck.

First things first, I'm new to the site. I was confused by the announcement, because it seems that all you need to do is create your account before June 1st, 2020? Is this what is intended by:


So please tell your friends, especially those who have been considering joining, that this is the best time.

Is there more nuance other than creating an account (I guess people just use the tools anonymously?) ?

Welcome CA! Yes, that's all you needed to do - you are free lifetime premium user of the reading tool now. (edit - I added the word "premium" to the first post to clarify)
