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.

About the best Wiktionary app there is

With multilingual support (only shows the section of that language) and offline dictionary, this is a lifesaver for me as I live in China and can't access Wiktionary without a VPN.

Feature requests: 1) for Russian and Ukrainian, showing the verbal aspect would be great (whether the verb is perfective/imperfective, and even better if the counterpart is also shown). This is important because the aspect determines the meaning of the verb, e.g. whether it's "I'm doing" or "I'll do".

2) for Russian, Ukrainian, Latin, and maybe some other synthetic languages, it would be nice to show the inflection table (conjugation/declension). This might not be needed for agglutinative languages like Korean or Turkish, where the inflections are almost all regular. But in synthetic languages words often have irregular forms.

Alternatively, it would suffice to show the basic grammatical forms/notes listed on Wiktionary next to the entry form (such as for Lat. "habeo", habere, habui, habutum, 2nd conjugation, or for Lat. "corpus", corporis, 3rd declension) -- a good substitution if tables would be unwieldy to display/implement.

3) For all languages: some apps like Google translate would automatically switch the keyboard depending on the language you select. Would be very handy to add to this app.

Developer Response ,

Thanks! Conjugation is an often-requested feature, I hope I can add it soon.

Feature request: a favorites list

This is my favorite dictionary reference to use. Would it be possible to add words to lists to remember them? You can somewhat already do that by adding a note like “fav” to a word. But then when reviewing the notes, you cannot go directly to the definition, which is somewhat inconvenient. Allow one to create different lists would be nice as well. Perhaps one would like a general list of all words, words they’ve already mastered, and a list in which they are currently working on. Doing this would also save on the unnecessary data storage in the attachments table in the SQLite database, by removing the need for a mimetype and a blob. When instead only the name of the word is needed.

Please and thank you very much

Incredible app

As a linguist, I love Wiktionary and use it daily. Having this offline, simple, version with only the languages I use is amazing. I never write reviews, but I really adore this app.

If I could suggest two things, I would love for Hebrew to be added, as well as the conjugation/decision for verbs and nouns to be shown. I’m not sure if this would be possible, but it would also be nice to provide the Wiktionary audio recordings that are sometimes available instead of the text to speech that is provided in the app. Besides that, it’s a great app. With those additions, I’d never visit the web version of Wiktionary again. Thank you for creating this!
