Get definitions for words in 25 languages and boost your language learning efforts with flashcards exported to AnkiMobile. Based on free data, without ads, data collection, tracking or in-app purchases.

The language data comes from Wiktionary, a project which aims to describe all words of all languages in English. In one single application, multiple languages can be installed, currently there are 25 languages, but with over 4300 languages in the Wiktionary project there is ample opportunity to include more in future releases.

Etymologies help to make connections between new and already familiar words in any language installed, and example sentences show words and phrases from everyday usage.

To facilitate faster language learning, your search history is available locally and fully searchable. If you use AnkiMobile you can export flashcards directly from an entry.

Best dictionary for Esperanto

The fact that Esperanto is in here is amazing. It is honestly the best dictionary on the App Store for it!

It does a great job of matching words with Esperanto specific characters without needing to switch to an Esperanto keyboard which I love.

The one annoyance I have is that I wish I could specify what language I want to search in when I’m searching a word that is valid (in whole or in part) in both English and Esperanto (for example, “bar” brings up so many results that it’s impossible to find what I’m looking for). So being able to toggle something would be nice, but it doesn’t get in the way that often.

Dankon pro la recenzo! I'll see if I can find a good solution to fix the language search without complicating the UI.

Your project is amazing

Your project is amazing don’t be unmotivated because of the success of the other futile apps and games .
Thank you very much for your wonderful efforts, adding the Russian transliteration is just absolutely great, very few people would have thought about doing you’ve accomplished, the app is very neat, and the offline use is indispensable, I would really appreciate if you can add Persian, as it’s much less researched and less resourced than the other languages, that’s besides me being already engaged in Iranian languages research as it can offer a great deal of benefit to the Indo-European languages in general.
Again, Thank you very much!

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the review, I'll have a look at adding Persian. I like the idea of supporting less resourced languages in general.

Way better than all other dictionary apps I’ve tried

I’ve tried for years to find a good dictionary app - without annoying ads and unnecessary “features,” lightweight and quick to load and navigate - and believe this is it.

I like to look up every word I don’t recognize in my reading, and often need archaic usages. Motî makes it easy to find alternative definitions and etymologies with its minimalist display.

I appreciate that when you go back to the search page from an entry, the keyboard comes up automatically, ready for another search - no extra taps here. I can’t believe other dictionary apps haven’t made simple UI improvements like this.

Love it - thank you!

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your review and nice words! A similar, but unsuccessful search for a good dictionary app is how this project started.
