dict.cc: English-German
and Multilingual Dictionary

The goal of dict.cc is to make it possible to share your vocabulary knowledge with the world. This is the main difference from other translation services - every user is encouraged to contribute to the English-German dictionary by adding and/or verifying translation suggestions. The resulting vocabulary database can be downloaded and used for free.

Besides browsing the dictionary or searching for German-English translations you can also ask and answer questions related to the German or English language using the translation forum. To improve your language skills try the vocabulary trainer.

Disclaimer: The correctness of the translations cannot be guaranteed (nobody is perfect), but all input will be checked carefully. If you spot an error, please report it using the info button [i] located next to each translation within the search results.

Today the number of 30,000 translations was exceeded! Thanks and congratulations to the contributors!
2023-11-06: 21 years of dict.cc!
This year I added several new features that were requested a lot over the years, to the apps and to the website. For example the lockscreen widget for iPhone or the possibility to search all languages at the same time. Another such feature, for the vocabulary trainer section, is currently in the works.

Here are the statistics for 2023:
1,268,426 German-English translations, 2,210,325 translations in other language pairs
1,461,288 audio recordings, 1,461,288 inflection entries and 404,996 illustrating images
300,985 registered users, 37,802 of them contributors

And another interesting number: In total, the dict.cc website has answered 26,107,000,000 dictionary queries by now, including around 1.4 billion in the last year alone. Many thanks to the contributors making this possible!
2023-09-08: DE/FR - 100k!
German-French has reached 100,000 entries today! This makes French the first language to reach this milestone in both language pairs! Congratulations to all of the contributors!
2023-08-08: Simultaneous search in all languages
This functionality was requested many times over the years. I'm unsure about the practical purpose of this when doing translation work, but I think it's definitely interesting for studying similarities between different languages or listening to how a given term sounds in different languages. Or maybe you heard or read a word and you're not even sure which language it was in. Just enter it and see what languages come up.

The search results are grouped by language families and the languages within the families are sorted by the amount of speakers. It's also possible to select only a few languages for comparison.
