Add or vote on suggestions to improve Readlang.

Note: I’m not adding new features for now, since I’m busy working for Duolingo. But don’t worry, I’ll continue to fix bugs and keep the site running smoothly.

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Integrated dictionaries no longer seem to work with arabic script

    The default dictionary for arabic no longer seems to work, and my attempts to add others haven't proven fruitful so far (e.g. http://www.almaany.com/en/dict/ar-en/{{query}}).

    Any idea what might be wrong?

    Thanks for the amazing site!

    • Please add a dictionary form to the flashcards

      For example I'm learning German. Nouns in German have one of three genders and to be able to use the word correctly, one has to know its gender. So when I'm learning words I need to learn their gender as well.

          Please check that:

          1. You have the correct language selected. Go to http://readlang.com and check the “I’m learning…” language selector at the top of the page is set appropriately.

          2. You are signed in to the correct account. You can check this by visiting http://readlang.com and clicking your user avatar in the top right corner.

        • Another ways to recall

          This is a real good app, but It`s difficult to me enter everytime you send me an email I mean that it would be easier if i can select and set up the time for example; every 15.30 or 60 minutes and so that It appears in my screen a small popùp In the lower right corner to remind me it

              • Let us edit definitions

                Some definitions are misleading or missing, for example 電話 means both phone and phonecall but the translator says only "phone". It'd be fantastic if we could edit the definitions and add in our own usage notes or whatever.

                  You can review and edit translations for all your words and phrases on the Word List page: http://readlang.com/words

                  If a word can have two different translations I either:

                  - Add both translations separated by a slash – e.g. “phone / phonecall”

                  or:

                  - Add a minimal amount of surrounding context to the original word to make it a short phrase which is then less ambiguous and can have just one translation.

                  Hope that helps.

                • to help learning ... an option to gradually unveil words one letter at a time

                  I hope this header is sufficient to describe the idea. I presume that this is a 'valid' learning technique?

                  • Correct typos on your site

                    This was written in the settings section:

                    "a translation appears above each clicked word, and the dictinary shows additional translations into English"

                    Notice anything wrong there. It doesn't give me a lot of confidence in your product when something that would be flagged in any spellchecker is left on your site.

                    • Learn the difference between å, ä and a

                      When I am trying to do Swedish your program seems to think these are all the same letters. They are not.

                      For instance, Readlang gives the same definition for håll as for hall. These are two different words.

                      If the A1 lessons are so wrong how can I trust anything more difficult.

                        • 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)

                              To improve the website I think that would be great to have the cover for our ebooks or the possibility to add a picture.

                              • option to re-order word list

                                It would be helpful to be able to re-order the word list in chronological or reverse chronological (or alpha) order, so we could review the words in the order we first saw them in the text, or to reverse that order. On bank statements, for example, you can click the header of a date column to do this.

                                  You can actually do this from the Words page by changing the dropdown that says “Recently Modified” to either:

                                  “Oldest”: Chronological order
                                  “Recently Added”: Reverse chronological order

                                  Although -icx- (-iĉ-) isn't official, many people use it, and it would be helpful if readlang somehow recognized this suffix and provided a translation for words that use it.

                                        Hey Steve!

                                        Would love it if we could (un)star words while in Flashcard mode.

                                        Readlang rocks!

                                        All the best,

                                        Sean

                                        • add a group field for the flashcards

                                          When I want to study the flashcards, they are grouped according to the website or article from which I added the words. It would be great if I could create my own groups, so that I could choose the flashcards I wanted to study, for example if I am reading an article or book that is not online. As it stands, I have only the choices mentioned or all of the words I have added.
