The driving force behind the Langalot dictionary was a desire for a more modern take on a foreign language dictionary.
Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) March 9, 2010
There's a new foreign language dictionary on langalot.com that instantly searches German, French, Spanish, Italian, and English dictionaries at the same time. If you type in "cheese", you'll see "Käse", "formaggio", "fromage", and "queso" as well as many other words containing cheese like "Schafskäse", "ricota", "fromagerie".
Selecting any of the results provides the full dictionary entry, including example sentences, native definitions, and the ability to save the word to learn using Langalot's advanced learning tools. It is also easy to use it to only search one language by selecting German, French, Spanish, Italian, or English to limit your results.
Some intrepid users found the dictionary and already mentioned it on twitter:
langology: "Awesome! The fastest foreign #language #dictionary on the web!"
morsmal: "WOOOW! The fastest foreign (any!) language dictionary."
The driving force behind the Langalot dictionary was a desire for a more modern take on the foreign language dictionary. There are plenty of online dictionaries but they all make users waste time selecting the dictionary language and the translation language. Langalot instead just searches all of its dictionaries and detects the translation language automatically. No clicks are necessary to get results, just type in what you are looking for and get instantaneous results.
In addition to the dictionary, Langalot has tools to help users learn vocabulary, study sentences and phrases, and learn from the community. Langalot also provides the same audio courses used by the Foreign Service Institute (the U.S. State Department) for teaching languages. All the tools and courses are free. It is ideal for self-learners, students, and travellers wishing to learn German, French, Spanish, Italian, or English.
