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!

  1. problems with sign in

    I love your site and want to purchase but there is a problem with your sign in. I created an account to log in by email. When I go to sign on again is reads sign on through google and will not accept my password. I try to re-register but the system tells me someone is already using that email and pass word. I was going to pay today but not now until the sign in problem can be corrected.

  2. Show image hint in the pop-up for an auto-highlight word while in read mode.

    When the user clicks on an auto-highlighted word in read mode, it would be great if the pop-up showed the image hint (by the way, it is so awesome that GIFs work) that has been set up.

    It may be incredibly useful to have in lieu of a translation in monolingual mode.

  3. Feature Idea

    I'd love to have a feature that allows you to see how many words you already know in the language you're learning... like something similar to what lingq does...

  4. Note field on flashcards

    It would be great if a user could write a few lines of text about each flashcard for a mem (like memrise) or even a few translation notes. I know there's support for adding pictures, but my mems have always been text-based. I tried putting this in a new context field, but then my mem would appear above the card while I was trying to think of the translation.

    Same idea as http://readlang.uservoice.com/forums/192149-general/suggestions/5278506-extra-field-for-answer-side-of-flashcards, so repeating the comment I made there…

    There’s an “Alternatives” field that you could add this kind of information to.

    It is designed to accept alternative synonyms of the word when you type an answer, but apart from that it behaves as you are suggesting – it appears when you reveal the word in your target language.

    I suppose it would be nice to make a distinction between “alternative answer” and “notes”, but at the same time I don’t want to clutter the editing interface too much. What do you think?

  5. 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.

  6. Don't automatically show English translation for flashcards.

    When reviewing flashcards, I find that my eyes go straight to the English translation rather than the sentence context. It would be nice if there was an option to make it so that user has to click to show the English translation. That way, the default would be for the user to read the sentence and figure out what the appropriate word is and only clicks to see the english translation when it's too hard to tell from the context. The hope is that this may allow the user to stay in his/her target language more often.

    Thanks!

  7. Fix a bug that doesn't let me access my premium account

    I have paid for my premium account for several months, and this month my account says that I am on the free plan, even though my bank account is still being charged for the premium one. I do not have access to the premium features which I have paid for.

  8. Allow for more than 25 words selection

    Hi,

    Would it possible to select more than 25 words from the word list at a time. For example, I would like to select ALL of my starred words (more than 25) for practice yet the minute I hit the forward button to select more starred words, the ones I selected previously no longer show up for practice.

    It would be extremely helpful to be able to see/select more than 25 words at a time in the word list to create the flashcard study that I need.
    Thanks

  9. Web Reader extension for desktop Safari

    Create an extension for desktop Safari just like for Chrome.

    (Note, for now you can use the bookmarklet which functions identically, the only difference is that it's accessed via a link in your bookmarks instead of via a nice toolbar button: http://readlang.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/523289)

  10. Japanese word splitting (MECAB)

    Hi,

    Would it be possible to run any texts imported for Japanese through mecab? This would split up the words and while not 100% accurate would allow users to look up words without adding too many 'rubbish' words by mistake when they highlight fragments / don't know where the word breaks are.

    Any mistakes by mecab can be corrected quite easily by the user editing text. Also if you could add some sort of way to show/hide spaces then more advanced students/ those that dislike the spaces could just hide them.

    Cheers

  11. Proper tokenization for Korean

    Korean has tons of particles, verb endings, etc. so there are a lot of words recognized as different on here that are really the same word just with different grammatical implications. For example, 학교에서, 학교에, 학교까지, 학교가, 학교를, and more are all just the word for school. I think with more accurate tokenization of those to just 학교 along with the same for other nouns, verbs, and such that the single-word dictionary lookup and flashcards for Korean would be much more useful.

    I don't know how your backend is written but there is a pretty good Korean tokenizer written in…

    Sorry but the http://steamcommunity.com/ website has a security policy that stops any external scripts from running. This includes the Readlang Web Reader. The same problem happens with Facebook.

    There may be a way I can work around this for Chrome Extension users but I would need to investigate further.

  15. make it easier to add your own translation straightaway

    Other similar apps/software allow you to write in your own definition of a word or phrase immediately without having to click (in Readlang's case) several times on the word/phrase or navigate to a different panel. This would be a really helpful addition to Readlang for me (especially when reading Latin) as - at the moment - the automatic translations are often not sufficient and the current method for adding your own translation is quite time-consuming (compared to just having the word pop up in the side panel and being able to input translation immediately).

  17. 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).

  20. Adding flashcards

    Hi - I love the flashcards generated from readlang but I sometimes encounter words and phrases elsewhere and would love to manually add them to my readlang flashcards - can this be done or is it an easy update? I know I could export all my readlang flashcards to Anki and add to that but I prefer everything in one place, and readlang is where I do 80% of my reading.
