Does anything bug you about using Readlang? Add or vote on suggestions to improve it!

NOTE: Readlang is run by just one person, me, Steve. Even entire software development teams can't implement all the great ideas that they come up with, and this is doubly true in my case since I'm just a single person. So although I read all the ideas posted here, I can't possibly implement most of them. The feedback definitely helps inform my product decisions though, so please keep posting!

  2. add field for context translation?

    Readlang is already great!

    The flashcards have fields for the word, the translation of the word, and the context sentence that the word was originally found in, etc. It might be nice if there was yet another field where I could also put in a translation of the whole context sentence. Maybe the Explain-bot in the side panel could provide it? (It already does sometimes, I think)

    Thanks for reading and thanks for all the work you've put into the app already!

    Thanks for the suggestion! I'll consider this, but at the same time I want to be wary of adding too many fields which make the app feel overly complicated. It's tough to strike the right balance!

  3. Add Ancient Greek

    I've been interested in Ancient Greek for a long time now, and I'd love to use your website for continuing to learn it. I'm already impressed by what I can do on your site through playing around with your Spanish and Irish language materials and flashcard system. Any possibility that Ancient Greek could be added to your website?

    I'm afraid Google Translate (used for the translations which appear above words you click on) doesn't have an Ancient Greek option, so I can't add this right now.


    You could try uploading an Ancient Greek text with your learning language set to Greek to see how that works. The Explain feature is also available for Greek so if the translation gloss above the word doesn't look convincing you can check to see if the explanation in the sidebar (provided by ChatGPT) is better.


    If you try this, I'd love to hear how it goes!

  4. allow Summary option to toggle between learning/native language

    I really like the new summary feature!

    Right now, it gives the summary in the language that I'm learning, but it would be nice if I could toggle the summaries back and forth between English and Spanish, etc.

  5. in practice in mobile view, clicking a word in the context box does not show a translation

    This is about what happens when I click a word in the context of the tested word, during practice.

    On desktop, the word is underlined and it's translation appears above it, just like in reading mode.

    On mobile, the word is only underlined. I can send a screenshot of it's not clear.

    In both cases, the word is added to the word list, so it's probably just a display issue.

  6. Add Interlinear Text Option to support Bilingual Text

    Hi,

    Would it be possible to add in a premium option to make an interlinear text of the current page or the whole reading? Right now, I spend a lot of time curating my word list, because it creates a card from every translation that I do. An interlinear text will allow me to see the full sentence translations without creating cards and select the phrase or word that I want to turn into a card. This would also partially address some of the other ideas for bilingual texts.

    I've started converting text to be interlinear and entering it into…

  10. Please add an option to automatically translate whole page or text

    I find having a translation above each word extremely useful. For languages that I'm a beginner, I have to translate almost every word on each page. I'd find it very useful to be able to select an option that does this automatically, and displays a translation for every word.

    I'm speaking about word by word translation, like interlinear texts, and not about whole phrases. In my opinion, phrases should still be translated by being selected, just like now, but the interlinear word by word translation would make this app even more unique, there's no other app out there that does…

  11. Allow correction of a mistyped answer (simple typo's)

    there is no way to correct a minor typo after an answer was checked and found wrong. one can only go to the next card.

    why not leave the card in unanswered/edit mode again...

    If you got the card wrong, it will resurface later within the same flashcard session, giving you a chance to test yourself again and try to get it correct without the typo. Do you think this is OK?

  12. Pop Up translation without shifting the text

    Please, add a pop up translation, when the word is highlighted or underlined but does not shift the text. The text shifting is crazy annoying especially on mobile devices. Overall the service is great, thank you! :)

  13. Fix highlighting when it includes markdown/italicized text

    At the moment, highlighting a phrase for translation fails when it includes both regular text and formatted text. If a sentence says, e.g., "I can't believe it was her idea" (raw text: I can't believe it was *her idea*), trying to select the whole phrase won't work.

  14. Use "Enhanced" and "Premium" built-in macOS voices when available

    In macOS it's possible to download additional voices through the settings. Those voices offer a much more natural pronunciation compared to the basic versions at the cost of a larger file size. Even when those voices are downloaded, they are not available in the Readlang settings for premium users. If you could make those somehow available, it would mean a massive QoL improvement.

    When available (not the case for all voices), the names of those voices are the name of the basic variant with " (Enhanced)" or " (Premium)" added to it, e.g. "Thomas (Enhanced)" or "Amélie (Premium)". Thanks!

    Thanks for the suggestion! I've just tried this and I managed to get the enhanced version of the Spanish voice Monica to show up in Google Chrome and Firefox, but for some reason not on Safari.


    I also tried the installing the Spanish Siri voice but couldn't get that to show up in any browser.


    Sorry I'm not sure exactly why this is the case, but I agree that offering a choice of more high quality voices would be good!

  15. Twitter scroll not working

    The chrome extension does not appear to work well on Twitter. It does initially but if you scroll, the new tweets will not have the plugin working. I've tried scrolling first and then enabling the plugin but that does not work very well either.

  16. Auto-highlight words for Japanese

    The Auto-highlight feature is working for e.g. German, but absent for Japanese. Is this intentional? It seems a relatively language-independent feature to implement, so I was wondering if it was possible to add. Thanks!

  17. slight edits of the context

    Sometimes I want to slightly edit the context on the flashcard, but then the link to the original document is lost.

    I think changes that:
    - shorten the context
    - lengthen the context (choose a longer piece of text than originally automatically selected)
    - change whitespace and punctuation
    - possibly also correct typos (have small Levenstein distance)

    should not break the link to the text they were taken from.

    I've tested this and for me the link to the text remains even after editing the context. Please can you explain the steps you took to edit the context which led to this link being broken. Thanks!

  19. In freshcards, "enter" key can be a choice of left clicking "yes(I remember the word)"

    In freshcards, wish to make the function that pressing "enter" key can be a choice of left clicking "yes(I remember the word)" by a mouse, which might be more efficient to review words.

    You can currently use the number keys "1" (Not at all), "2" (Almost), and "3" (Yes) to give feedback on whether you remembered a word. That way you can progress through a whole flashcard session without using the mouse at all.

  20. automatically active

    I want it to be automatically active on the page we specify.
