  1. Words' Categories

    Hi,
    I think that Readlang is the best app I have ever bumped in.
    My world list is becoming longer as the time passes so it would be very useful to give the chance of creating categories so to study it more specifically.
    Moreover I didn't succeed in installing Reading in my tablet...the info's given seem to be unuseful.
    Bye and thank you

    • Make it compatible with Aljazeera.net

      Hi,
      It seems absurd that your plugin isn't compatible with the most important Arabic newspaper online, Aljazeera. I bought a subscription to Readlang to learn Arabic exclusively, and I cannot use it with Aljazeera? Now I am forced to read BBC.com/arabic which isn't nearly as great.

          • Support bilingual texts for word count and CEFR level

            Human translations are still more accurate than Google Translate. So I like to upload texts like https://readlang.com/library/5bbb6a4c143b89000758ad5d/from/548 , with the original text plus the human translated version.

            Clearly this throws off the word count and readability index.

            Could you please support some sort of markup that we can use in uploaded text files, that will ignore the specified portions of the texts?

            • Track estimated known words

              Could you add a dashboard and stats that include your estimated vocabulary size. You could do this by by unique word count per page minus lookups that haven't been passed in SRS (like lingq.com does it).

              • Import Word List between different account.

                I really appreciate if you can develop this feature.

                Account 1 -> Export words list as .csv format

                Account 2 -> Import Account 1 word list into his account.

                • Open Source Readlang

                  Now that you are working for Duolingo (congrats by the way!) and have declared Readlang has been declared "feature complete", have you considered open sourcing Readlang? I understand that you don't have the time to devote to new features, but I'm sure there are developers out there in your user base (like me) who would be more than happy to contribute to the project (even if you get the money for operating the service). There's so many good feature requests on here that I'd love to see implemented, and I think open sourcing and embracing community contributions would be a…

                      • Add an audio player with keyboard controls (play, pause, skip back, slow-down)

                        Similar to the one used by http://otranscribe.com/

                        Could be used to play .mp3 or .ogg files, would be ideal for podcasts or audio-books

                        • Option NOT to save words, only translate.

                          Too much trash goes to magic word mashine, so they are saved only when they are starred(favorite).

                            I’ll think about adding an option for this in future because it’s been suggested a couple of times, but I actually prefer the way it works now. Let me explain.

                            If you click on a word or phrase, it means you don’t know what it means, or at least weren’t sure what it means. Therefore you should work on learning it in the “Learn” section, or if you made a mistake and accidentally clicked a word you already know, or it’s not useful to you, just delete it as soon as you encounter it in the “Learn” section.

                            I don’t like the idea of an extra click to favourite each word as you are reading because one of the key motivations of the site is to make reading as distraction free as possible, adding only tools that help you understand the text and then get out of the way. This…

                          • Add some stats/reports

                            Hello,

                            One more idea - it would be nice to be able to see statistics eg how many words read/ hours spent / words studied etc. I find this kind of info quite motivating , not sure if others do as well.

                            Thanks

                                    • No suggestion, just a word of praise

                                      I recently had to allow my subscription to Readlang to expire, but I wanted to let you know that it isn't due to any problem with the service.

                                      Unfortunately I'm suffering a condition that doctors cannot figure out which causes incredible fatigue and insomnia. This has made language learning very difficult. Then the medication I was prescribed a few months ago has actually made it worse to the point that I cannot do any language learning activities. After the period on the medication has run its course and probably failed to produce results, I will hopefully be able to return…

                                      • monitor and review your articles for accuracy, in content and skill level.

                                        You have many articles listed as A1 but include passages from Kipling, Twain, and many political and religious texts. These are not suited for anyone below a B (or even occasionally C) level skills. It also looks like many texts are written by non native speakers and contain many errors which do not help the learner to learn the language correctly.
