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. Support for PDFs on Goethe Institute and Other Access Controlled PDF Readers

    Goethe Institute, Hoopla, and other free access libraries have a ton of content for language learners. But the browser extension doesn't work in these PDF readers.

    I would love to see the browser extension offer support for these kinds of PDFs.

  5. Possibilities to create decks similar to anki

    Hello, I wish there was an option to create decks for different types instead of just "word list". This would help a lot, because sometimes there are certain expressions that we would hardly use and other very useful. Even with the possibility to favorite the words and phrases it is still quite limited.
    finally, I want to congratulate the whole team for this wonderful extension, I'm enjoying it

  8. support upload of Youtube SRT files

    that shouldn't be a big fix and would make the video-syn function much smoother, and in general the readlang product much more attractive!

  9. Update or Change Persian Dictionary

    Most Persian translations especially in academic texts do not have related meanings and are meaningless. Automatically the definitions are selected and suggested from the first simple meanings from an old version of the dictionary. Connect a better-updated dictionary, please.

  10. Add capacity to create new Word lists

    I'm learning Swedish and like to sit reading my texts in hardcopy or on my computer with Readlang open in a browser. The program is super useful. It would be handy to add a feature so that users could create their own word lists. E.g. I would like to review all the words I've added to Readlang for the day as flashcards but at the moment all the words just go into one growing pool of words. The closest thing is to list the words by 'most recent' and then go to flashcards from there.

  13. Add the example sentence from Folkets lexicon by default

    I'm learning Swedish and using Readlang a lot as a tool to translate words, kieep track of the words I looked up, and to teach me the words using flashcards. It's an awesome program and I'm glad it exists. I'm a happy subscriber. One useful extra feature would be this. Readlang uses Folkets Lexikon for Swedish which is very good. Readlang could fill in the example sentence field for added words automatically from the same field in Folkets Lexikon by default. I'm finding there usually is an example sentence there and I'm just cutting and pasting it in each time.…

  14. Audio files with transcript

    I love the YouTube feature, but often, I have MP3 files with transcripts. This will help a lot a so much content these days in in audio-only format. Can you configure this feature as well?

    Thank you for the consideration.

    Kind regards,
    John

    when using the web extension, if i try to choose a phrase, the extension, in trying to tell me to sign up for the paid version, goes mostly off screen and has to be reset by clicking on the corner with the readlang logo. it is impossible to actually see most of the information that comes up. this is on windows 10

  18. option to change language for a flashcard

    I sometimes forget to change the language I am reading in when using the extension. Google doesn't tell me that the site is in English and not in German and translates everything as it can, seeing no difference. I end up with word translated from English to my native language in the German deck. Then I usually go to the same site, change language to English and click all the words I want to learn. But sometimes, you see, this site doesn't want me anymore without a special subscription. I would like to be able to edit these flashcards' language…

  19. when I click English words, they are translated one-to-one into German

    when I click English words, they are translated one-to-one into German. E.g .: reference = Referenz or indication = Indikation. Here, it would be helpful to use a word that is not related, such as: reference = Bezug or indication = Anzeichen. Otherwise the translation doesn't really help in these cases.

  20. be able to have as many flash cards as each text .

    I find very annoying to have only 8 or 25 flash cards available, I really need to have each text with its specific set of flash cards and this is not possible here, so I have to use an external flash card app to introduce the words I find for each individual text.
