About this app

The Guardian: "Smartphone owners are spoiled for choice when it comes to dictionary apps, but Linguee looks like it could dislodge your current favourite from your homescreen. It translates between a number of languages, with quick tools for searching. And it works offline too."

The dictionary Linguee is used by millions of people.
- Translations in French, Spanish, German and more
- Reliable: Created by over 400 lexicographers
- Fast: Translations after entering just the first few letters
- The dictionary is free and also available offline

Linguee is a new kind of dictionary app for French-English, Spanish-English and other language pairs. You will find reliable translations in the shortest time, even when you're offline.

Dictionary for Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Dutch, and Polish. All dictionaries are bidirectional - you search simultaneously in Spanish-English and English-Spanish.

Our editorial dictionary was compiled by over 400 lexicographers in order to be capable of providing answers to the most difficult of queries.

Additionally, with the help of the integrated translation search engine, you have access to over one billion translations from the Internet.

Translations of words and phrases are shown after entering just the first few letters. Even inadvertent typing errors are intelligently corrected.

The editorial dictionaries can be downloaded for free and are subsequently available for use even when you're offline. This allows you, for example, to look up terms while you are abroad and have no data connection.

You will find examples sentences containing all the words you search for.

All of the dictionary entries have been recorded audibly by professional speakers.

Outstanding service with a great, ad-free app. With that said, it's not optimized for modern aspect ratios - my phone is 18.5:9 and I have a black bar at the bottom of the home screen. Also, the main menu should not keep prompting me to show translations in other apps. I don't want to; I open Linguee when I need it. A dark theme would be very welcome as well.

Great dictionary, love the translation popup when you copy text to your clipboard in other apps. Makes it super quick to read the news in my second language. Only qualm: the history fills up fast and crashes when I open it. There should be a limit on the number of entries in there. It would also be great if you could add a way to export history, would make a great way to create vocabulary lists. Thanks! ♡

I have only had the app for a few weeks, but I have found it quite handy. I particularly like that the dictionary gives many examples in excerpts from parallel texts in the two languages involved in the translation. I also like that the dictionaries can be downloaded for offline use. I am having some trouble getting G-board's glide-typing feature to work in the app, though. Also, it would be nice to see more languages available. But, in what it does have, the app does well. It is quite good.
