Does anything bug you about using Readlang? Add or vote on suggestions to improve it!

IMPORTANT: Readlang has been in maintenance mode since 2016 and will continue this way for the foreseeable future. We will continue to ensure the site works as it has been, but no new languages or features will be added.
  1. fix the problem with links and formatted text (when using extension on an external page)

    When using Chrome Readlang extension there is a problem, which I guess won't be difficult to solve. You cannot (or maybe I cannot) translate a fragment of a text that has two different styles of formatting within it. If something is a link or a bold text (or anything that needs using a separate html tag) you can only translate it separately (from the rest of the phrase). It's quite annoying, when using some dictionary examples (with described term always in bold) or articles that use a lot of links. The (ordinal?) number of the word is right, so I…

  3. Keep me signed in!

    The chrome extension is constantly signing me out and auto reloading the tab I'm using for Readlang. It's so annoying, and really difficult to use the flashcard function.

  5. to offer the possibility to save the words with their English definition instead of translation

    I think its way more helpful to learn words by their English meaning than by their translation. I believe that would be much more helpful for most English learners.

  6. change the behaviour of "accept this answer" button, please

    "Accept this answer" button doesn't work as you would expect. It should mean that your answer is totally valid (but couldn't be interpreted so by a machine), but it treats your answer as wrong. Firstly, it spaces the review after two days (so you have to repeat many times one that you already know). Secondly, it shows the question once more. (The review date should be counted as if the answer was right and the question shouldn't be shown again)

  7. Flashcards sound

    I prefer that when I review the flash cards I don't need to press the sound icon to hear the pronunciation and it happens atomatically.

  8. A scrolling-interface alternative to the page-turning interface?

    It would be great if you offered users (both on the desktop browser and on the mobile browser) the option of using a scrolling interface rather than a page-turning interface.

    There are two issues that might cause some users to pursue the scrolling interface:

    (1) The page-turning interface can make working with phrases at the bottom line or so quite difficult.

    (2) Sometimes, the phrase someone needs translated might run from the end of one page on to the beginning of the next, which can be very problematic on the page-turning interface - yet would be a non-issue in a…

  9. Thanks for making this service

    I've been looking for something like this for a while. Reading in a target language is the best way to learn.

  11. Have an option to show the first letter of the answer for "active recall" flash cards.

    I have turned off the option for active recall cards because if the clue is something like "hasty" there are many words that would work. If you answer with a word that is correct, but not the actual answer word, you can add as an alternative. However, if you answer with a word that you think is correct but is not, you may be entering an incorrect word in the "alternative word" field.

    It would be great to have an option to see just the first letter of the answer word. That should be enough of a clue that I…

  14. dark theme for readlang

    The ebook reader looks great on mobile. I'd love to have a toggle button where you can put it in "dark mode", ie white text on black background.

  15. Review flash cards by frequency.

    When reviewing flashcards, it would be great to filter them by frequency. One category could be the "1000 most frequent words" followed by a "1k-3k most frequent words" and so on.

    Doing so may allow users to not be so overwhelmed by the number of flashcards. If you tell yourself, I'm going to stay on top of the 5000 most frequent words, then you can ignore the words that are less frequent and not by stressed about letting them pile up, because you are not going to see them often in your text.

  16. Retain filter for context sentences when reviewing flashcards by text.

    When I use the premium feature of reviewing just words for a particular text, it would be great if it only present context sentences from that text.

    So if I am specifically reviewing words from a Harry Potter book, I would like to only see context sentences from that book. I would still like to click the arrow to see context sentences from other sources, but one of the Harry Potter sentences should show first. Thanks.

  17. Make it easier to add images in cards.

    In a similar way that the card edit screen automatically loads up an external dictionary, it would be nice to have it automatically look up the word in Google Images (maybe Giphy too). Ideally, you would be able to click on the image and add it to your card, rather than copying and pasting it. Thanks.

  18. Fix the parsing of German quotation marks.

    Some German texts use the following quotation marks: » «. Often, when parsing the context sentence, it will grab the » that is part of a quote of the next sentence. It requires a lot of time to fix these dangling quotation marks at the end of sentences. Thanks.

  19. Fix bug where the context sentence doesn't include text from the previous page.

    When using the reader in Readlang, if I click on a word in a sentence that spans two pages, the captured context sentence does not include words from the previous page. I end up having to delete these cards because an incomplete context sentence is not useful.

  20. Option to highlight words without displaying their translations

    I would love to be able to highlight words I don't know without having their translations appear on screen. This would serve several functions:


    • The text would not rearrange itself everytime I click on a word, thus keeping proper formatting and allowing for more text to stay on the screen;


    • I could read through the text without being distracted by the translation, allowing me to note which words I am unsure of while still being able to consider their meaning through context, and pay more attention to the text as a whole.


    • Once I am done reading, I could easily…
