Conjuga-me (language resources)
I found a place called conjuga-me some time ago when I was going through the Portuguese course and it has really helped me. You simply type a word in the infinitive and it gives you conjugations for that word in a very organized way. Thought I should share it with you guys.
If anybody has another similar site not just for portuguese but for any other language available here in Duolingo please share it.
(Look for more in the comments!)
Why can't there be one easy site that does the most common languages? And also lets you put in the english (or another language) the verb (say I want) then output it to something else - Japanese, arabic, spanish, etc. I want to KNOW the verb "to want" in Japanese, but I don't know it.
Well, I have one that translates many languages to each other but for Japanese translates to Spanish or French, but those definitely translate to English so you could do it in two steps, unfortunately it translates to katakana, but I am sure there is a direct dictionary out there. Check freedict.com. Okay, jisho.org .is really for Japanese to English.
Arab translates back and forth to French or English in Reverso. It is in their script, but allows you to listen to it spoken.
Your example is very interesting, because "to want" in Japanese is usually expressed with the adjective 欲しい (hoshii) or with the たい verb form (as in 食べたい, "want to eat"). That right there shows you how big a challenge a software like this would be.
Yes, but most of these sites give the other language's verb and don't allow you to put (in English) something. to want, to give, to hug, to drink, to drive, to swim, to run, to walk, to . . . . They would mostly only give the verb in Spanish, French, German, Italian or something else and you have to 'fumble' around trying to get the verb (translation) you want.
There is a software (for pc, android and apple) called "Human Japanese 2.0" I went through it and it covers all the basics in a very clear manner. Recently they released "Human Japanese Intermediate" which concentrates on more vocabulary and teaching Kanji. If anyone feels interested I'll leave it here: Human Japanese
Verbix is a truly multi-language conjugator: http://www.verbix.com/languages/. Reverso is another one specialising in English, Spanish, French and German: http://conjugator.reverso.net. A couple more for Portuguese: http://www.flip.pt/FLiP-On-line/Conjugador.aspx and http://www.infopedia.pt/verbos-portugueses/ (you may need to force the desktop version on a mobile device). [Added later: someone recently suggested: http://www.conjugacao-de-verbos.com for Portuguese.]
A lot of people know about http://www.wordreference.com/, but their conjugations shortcuts are really easy to use, too. No conjugations for Portuguese, but for Spanish, Italian and French the work very well -
Shortcuts are great to do quick translations too!
I've been using Collins ES-EN app on iPad and iPhone. There is an easy tap to conjugate all the verbs and switch easily between tenses. Using WordReference.com, a great resource for all sort of word usage and phrase usage, you can access Collins and get the congregations too. Word Reference works for multiple languages, not just ES-EN.

I'll have to take a look, I'm needing some help with Italian. Thanks for sharing!
This looks VERY helpful! Especially for us who are learning Portuguese and get confused about those conjugations! Muito obrigado!
