Duolingo's bilingual dictionaries!

Hello! it would be great if this site had its own Duodictionaries! Vote up if you support this idea!

No, I don't see the point. We already have the excellent wiktionary projects, released under a creative commons license making them freely available to the world. Compiling a dictionary is a huge effort, why duplicate the work?

Then, perhaps Duolingo should link to it somewhere obvious?

Duolingo could make business with Collins or Reverso to implement their dictionaries here.

Sounds good to me, at least.

DL would have to spend money to do so. It would be less expensive for DL, if we adjusted our expectations and used equivalent resources elsewhere on the internet (it takes me two clicks). It might save me one click if DL paid money to host a dictionary on site.

Back to the plan of including wiktionary links, then.

I keep the Italian-English WordReference dictionary on a separate tab and it does the job.

I use en.pons.eu for looking up words in German. They have lots of other languages, too (Czech, Latin, even Elvish), but their German is the largest if I recall corectly. I strongly recommend it.

Pons looks good, hadn't tried it before. dict.cc is also very good for German, and has an offline smartphone version too.

I used dict.cc before I switched over to pons.eu. The latter was better arranged, more clean in presentation and showing information, and included pronunciations.

Also try SpanishDict.com. It offers three translations, so you can pick and choose.
