  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Idea For Chinese to make it work

    I suggest adding pinyin on the top of words

    The main problem with Chinese is that it has no alphabet
    Adding pinyin on the top to make it readable and then checking the meaning will make it work. Check out Pinyiner on Android then you will get what I mean.

  8. crowdsource translations and flashcards!

    I will be great if could share my flashcards and people could share theirs with me. because sometimes the translations isn't accurate, and I have to add images to it. it will be great if we all use common flashcards.

  9. 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?

  10. Add an additional exportable field "monolingual definition"

    I'd love to have both translation and monolingual definition fields in the word list - ideally with the option to connect both with custom dictionaries.

    The reason for this is that my Anki notes have both translation and monolingual definition fields. (My Spanish isn't advanced enough yet that I could always work with monolingual definitions, but starting to integrate them helps me get there.)

  12. Team up with duolingo! (or do a similar approach)

    This is probably one of the best language learning sites I've ran into. I couldn't find a single thing to complain about, and then I noticed something. Some features cost money, and I get it. You guys need money to maintain this site, but charging money from it's users would only hinder it.

    I'm sure you've guys have heard of duolingo. It one of the most well known language learning tools out there. Why? Because it's free!! Users on duolingo provide a service by translating the internet while learning a language for free. Everybody wins! I was thinking either you…

  13. The Hebrew dictionary you're using, Morfix, requires more width

    Morfix is excellent, but it requires more width, otherwise we've got an annoying horizontal scrollbar. For Hebrew, can you automatically open screens that use Morfix (like the flashcard editing screen) wider? Here's a short screen capture demonstrating the issue: http://screencast.com/t/MIN31f69x

  14. Allow users to suggest alternative translations

    Sometimes the translations suggested are a bit off the mark and could be improved on. It might be useful to allow users to suggest improved translations, in the same way that Google translate does.

  16. 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

  17. What if I want to practice the same words again?

    I've done my first 19 words, and now they're listed in the magic machine area. But, what if I want to practice them again? I go to Learn, and it doesn't offer me a flashcard quiz.

    I should be able to review flashcards whenever I want to.

    These words are now scheduled for the future (for tomorrow if this is your first time testing yourself). This is done according to a spaced repetition system designed to optimise your learning. Basically, it would probably be more beneficial to learn some new words now and come back to those words tomorrow.

    I can understand the desire to re-test yourself on words earlier than scheduled though and will consider adding this feature, thanks.

    (Note that it’s best to translate a lot more than 19 words, even if you don’t have time to test yourself on all of them. The reason is that Readlang prioritises based on the word frequency so it will try to show the most useful words first. If you have lots of words then you will never run out of words to practise on.)

  18. 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).

  19. Add the possibility to show only public library content with youtube video

    Add the possibility to filter the public content in order to only show content that has a youtube video. This would help those interested in improving the listening skills.

  20. add hotkey for browsing vs registering word

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