Ratings and Reviews
Really very good
This app has the usual headword definitions that you expect of any dictionary. It has, in fact, a particularly wide range. The unusual and strong feature is that it also finds the word in lots of online translations and presents both versions side by side so that you can see the word in context and take a view about usage. Obviously these online ussages are not guaranteed to be idiomatic or correct but they are at least presented so that the experienced user can evaluate them. The beginner can stick to the conventional dictionary function. The advanced user will find it very helpful to be able to examine words and phrases in context.
A different way to translate
Linguee enables you to see the actual use of a word in context. It is not perfect because it is based on translations by experienced professional translators and, one can see from the translations, that they sometimes or, indeed, often take liberties with the translation. It all adds to the richness of the process however. It is useful to see how a word can be translated differently, or sometimes even ignored, in a professional translation which somehow gets the correct meaning across.
Finally a truly educational translator
Finds phrases as well as words, shows multiple examples of usage so you can both identify synonyms and where different words or phrases are used depending on context. Also quick. I was exhausted by translators that couldn’t distinguish between tenses let alone tell you which of the multiple translations often offered actually corresponds to the sense you mean. This s a gem and amazing resource for improving ones speaking and usage beyond mere literal translation.
