    • Sometimes I do not get a translation but the very same word. Even so you know the translation. Looks strange to me

      I often get the same word as a translation as the English word, for example "kerfuffle".
      But If I look up your word list and scroll down, I can find the correct translation. So I think, there must be an error somewhere.

      • Custom Flashcards

        As it is, I have to use Anki to make custom flashcards for the books I read, and Readland to remember my digital translations. Can we create our own custom flashcard sets so it can happen on one platform? Thanks.

        • add British pronounciation to the flashcards and word lists

          good afteenoon,
          I am learning English with your tool. Very great. Unfortunately in the flashcards mode the pronounciation is American by default and i cannot change it to British. Also the sounds on the word list are American. the only way to hear the british pronounciation is to click on every single word in the word list and click on the speaker in the WordReference window, which is time consuming in the long term.

          is there any chance it could be looked at please?

          I really want to keep using your tool but I right pronounciation is key.

          thank you…

          • Allow words to be separated at apostrophes

            I'd like to be able to split words at apostrophes instead of just spaces. In Welsh, for instance, 'r is often tacked on at the end of words for "the" in front of the next word. For example: Dw i'n hoffi'r gath = I like the cat. There should be an option for "hoffi" to be its own word in those situations, instead of "hoffi'r".

            • Right single quote = Apostrophe

              Right now the index cards count

              U+2019 : RIGHT SINGLE QUOTATION MARK {single comma quotation mark}

              and

              U+0027 : APOSTROPHE {APL quote}

              as separate characters. For whatever reason, some of the books I've uploaded use U+2019 instead of U+0027 as apostrophes, so it gets really annoying to have to add a "correction" for every word that has an apostrophe.

              • Support mutations for Celtic languages

                Oftentimes Celtic languages, such as Welsh and Irish, will have the same word with different starting letters. I would like the option to combine contexts for the same word with different mutations.

                For example: Mae'r gath yn ddu = The cat is black,
                Mae cath gyda fi = I have a cat

                  • add hotkey for browsing vs registering word

                    For example, Shift+Click for actually clicking through a link rather than registering the word clicked on.

                      • Include the Title in the "body" of an article.

                        When importing an article from the web, the importer does a good job of distinguishing the body of the article from the title. The only catch is, we can't actually "readlang" the title! The title needs to be just as interactive as the body text. Thanks. :)

                        • Option to switch off the video and only read

                          Currently, if the text has video, the video plays along with the text. But if I want to read the text only, it is difficult. I can pause the video and read, but if I click any text for translation, the video will start from that place. An option to disable the video would be great.

                          • the Japanese language course.

                            It appears so far--with the one I've tried-- to translate the English words into English and the pinyin words into the same pinyin words which really isn't of much help. Perhaps having an English to pinyin and Pinyin to English translation instead?

                            • Words with more added contexts go first in reviewing flashcards

                              We know that words with higher frequency appear first when reviewing flashcards. But it would be more useful and intelligent to use the number of added contexts to a word and you review words that have more added contexts first. Because here is the thing. I read material on topics I'm interested in, and some vocabulary I see more often. And that vocabulary is essential to me more than the other, maybe with higher general frequency.

                                I know I can reload the page to allow "unsafe" scipts but it's annoying having to do this every time. I searched for a way to allow Readlang always to load these windows but it's looks like it has to be resolved on the website's end rather than the user's. It wasn't a problem when I first started using the site, so I'm not sure what changed, but it's definitely negatively effected my usage of the site. Thanks for reading.

                                  I wonder if this is due to the external dictionary on the edit word panel?

                                  Please let me know which language are you learning. And whether you have edited the default external dictionary.

                                  When instructions are written, we can proceed at our own pace. We can easily go back and review a bit that we didn't get first time. We can consult any part of it at our leisure.

                                  Videos just drone on and on. We cannot easily review any particular section. And they are boring.

                                  • Options to separate selected phrases

                                    Sometimes I don't understand a phrase but I want each word in the phrase to be a separate flash card. Could it be possible, if a phrase is selected, to cycle through the options of selecting the whole phrase, having each word as a separate selection and deselecting all, as currently when you select a word followed by another word and then tap again it switches to a single word selection again. Also a selection delay of say 3 seconds before saving a flashcard so it doesn't save duplicates because you have been trying to select a phrase?

                                      • The option to edit a translation direcltly when reading

                                        and give more than one translation to choose from judging on context.

                                        Also the translations are often not in the right verb tense or conjugated properly in the english (spanish to english)

                                          Love your site. Would it be possible for you to add the option of changing the format of the flash cards so that that definition and word are both on the front of the card? in my previous experience in learning another language the traditional format of answer on the back is too taxing and ineffective and unrewarding . I can't believe they made us make flash cards in this format during compulsory education
