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.

2024-01-24: Slovak-English has reached 100,000 translation entries today!
2023-12-17: New feature: Read vocabulary list
That's another commonly requested functionality, recently most requested for the app. For the time being I just implemented it for the mobile website, so I can quickly improve it according to feedback and integrate it into the app later, when it's stable.

This tool reads out personal vocabulary lists word by word enabling users to learn vocabulary while doing other things - like driving, jogging or doing household chores. According to my tests audio output keeps working on smartphones even when the screen is turned off, but internet connectivity is still required to load the audio samples one by one while playing.

There are several settings to customize the experience, but to test it, simply click the "Start" button.
Feedback is very welcome, feel free to write me at paul@dict.cc!

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!
