  1. Allows user to export current intervals.

    It would be great if users could export the current interval for their words. This way, the words can be moved to another system without losing their learning progress.

    In addition, it would be great to include any other learning data that Readlang, such as difficulty. However, since we can't see any of these fields, I don't know what other fields there are related to the spaced repetition algorithm.

  2. 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

  3. 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?

  4. 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.

  7. 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).

  8. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. Make a page with stats

    It would be really neat to have a place where I can see stats on my vocabulary words: when I made a flashcard, how many times I've practiced it, how often I've gotten a word right/wrong recently, when it's due... etc. so I can get a better idea of my progress.

  12. English to English translation

    Has it been implemented? i basically just want to learn new words, or keep phrases that I read. I would like to write one day, and that would be a great way to store useful words and phrases.

  13. Running readlang on Microsoft Edge browser

    I seem to have trouble running readlang on Edge, where the translations appear over words. Is there a way to run it?

  14. to add the possibility to import movie subtitles, e.g. in the srt format.

    Since subtitles to movies are available online for various languages it would be good to consider them seriously here as a useful source. It is indeed possible even now to import text subtitles, however, it would be nice to see only the text on the screen and not the time marks. It would be also useful to have the possibility to import subtitle for two languages (one you know and one you learn), and see the two at the same screen, one by one.

    And, a native Android application would be nice...

  15. Highlight unknown words

    It would be great to have the ability to highlight unknown words, as is done in LingQ. There is something very satisfying about seeing the amount of unknown words get smaller and smaller as I learn a language.

  16. to modify the spaced repetition algorithm

    I feel that the algorithm is too optimistic compared to my learning capacities. There's a flash card i reviewed recently : Got it wrong the first try because i didn't remember very well, than got it right the second try... Now the next review will be in 50 days !!! Almost two months !!! So my suggestion for the algorithm simply is to "punish" harder when you're wrong. Cut the next review delay in half for example when you failed putting the correct answer once. That's a nice tool anyway. Good job !

  17. Audio sync rather than only YouTube video

    My idea is basically to do an Assimil styled approach but be able to incorporate your flashcards (or Anki) with it in this way: 1) listen to the recording, 2) transcribe and sync, 3) review with flashcards and, of course, be able to click on a word to hear it individually (which I think you have as a premium already).

    So, if I could upload audio I could then use podcasts and other sources besides YT. I'd like to be able to import audio files (Mp3 would be the first choice) and sync them up just as your YT function…

    Implement auto-highlighting (http://blog.readlang.com/2015/03/17/auto-highlight-words.html) in the Web Reader to use when reading any web page.

  20. Ability to change the default CEFR designation

    Sometimes the CEFR designation seems off, probably because the text is short. I think it should be modifiable or allow the user to add another field with a subjective level.
