If you've got a restless mind, you can't go without apps of the likes of the Wikipedia or TED talks on your phone. And you also definitely need a good language translator and dictionary. In that case, one of the best around is WordReference, that brings together all the functions any nerd would love on his smartphone.
The most popular and complete online dictionary and translation application.
WordReference has gained its own space on the Internet due to its own feats. Although its forums could be improvable (you can't trust all the users that give their advice and tips there), the application is really cool. But it isn't just a simple translator from English to any other language because it comes along with loads of other features:
- Dictionary for several languages.
- Verb conjugation tool.
- Dictionary of synonyms and antonyms.
- Written and spoken pronunciation function.
Eighteen languages in your pocket
Its languages cover the whole world: English, Spanish, French, Italian, Arabic, Chinese, Czech, Dutch, German, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Greek, Russian, Romanian, Swedish, and Turkish.
Forums with over 4 million entries about definitions and translations.
We can configure our most used dictionaries, check for terms in the forums (under your own responsibility), share entries straight with our colleagues, and mark entries and searches as favorites to be able to access them faster. And all the latter from this simple yet intuitive app, that's completely legal and absolutely free. It comes along with a premium function to remove adverts but they aren't that annoying.
Much more than a translator
Each time you search for a word in the translator you'll be shown three tabs on the upper part of the interface: the tool itself, the definition of the word according to Collins Dictionary and the WR Reverse tab. The latter is great because it's useful and witty: there we'll find the world we've searched for but showing the entries from the other side of the dictionary.
