in German Language

German Reference Tools

It’s a good thing the Germans know how complex their language is. They’ve invented two powerful tools to help learn it:

  1. The LEO English/German Dictionary can translate in either direction and the default setting is bi-directional, so you can type in either an English or German word and it’ll find the translation. This is only undesirable in the cases when a word is spelled the same in both languages but has different meanings, like bald. There’s even bookmarklets that can look up a word you’ve highlighted.
  2. The Morphology Browser let’s you surf info like conjugated verb forms, plus other info I don’t understand yet.
