    This is hands down the best word to word translation dictionary out there. There are a lot of words that mean roughly the same thing. What this app does is help you find the precise right word in the context for what you're trying to say. Its community of language lovers can help you even further understand lexical nuances. If words are important to you, this is the app for you.

  2. guest-avatar

    Here's how it goes almost every time I use the app: I start typing a word in the search box. The search suggestions load in, which causes my keyboard to disappear for a fraction of a second. In that fraction of a second I accidentally tap a word on the page that otherwise would have been behind the keyboard. The app then takes me to the dictionary page for the word I just tapped. It's getting more annoying every day :(

  3. guest-avatar

    Too many cookies, no ability to opt out easily. Also very difficult to navigate around, I often end up on an english definition page or English conjugation page and have no idea how to get back to the translation from english to spanish or spanish to English. Very unfriendly user experience 👎

  4. guest-avatar

    I'm a bit disappointed because we can't choose as many languages as we want.. At your first use it asks you which languages you want (for example french to english) but after you can't choose other ones, so if you need to translate a word into another language than english you can't. Despite this little problem I'm still going to use WordReference but only the website and I recommend it to you.

  5. guest-avatar

    Inserts windows in other apps offering to translate words selected/found/moused over. Very annoying. Otherwise workd pretty well. Update 1feb2020 : still doees it!!! How to stop it. Soooo disruptive!!!

  6. guest-avatar

    Translation is good. Usability is not great. It kind of switches by itself from translating to conjugating which is annoying. Also the X button to cancel a word before going a new one magically becomes a star (save to favourites) as soon as i touch it. Finally, of I tap on the typing box, instead of automatically blanking the space, it concatenates what I'm typing to the old word, which is very stupid. Then if I tap on the X.. it becomes a star and saves the composite word.. so stupid.

    Excellent but please let me use it offline, I love this app and website, but as a teacher I'd be happier to use it if you add some kind of offline mode, even if it means a membership.

  8. guest-avatar

    Fast, easy to use and very comprehensive. In short, absolutely excellent! (My use, over thousands of searches, has been mainly French/English)

  9. guest-avatar

    Shadid Shafiquzzaman


    Every time I search a French verb it goes automatically to the conjugator even though I was previously on French to English. French to English is still selected and needs to be tapped again to return results. It would also be faster to use if instead of the star in the search bar, the X was there without having to tap the search bar

  10. guest-avatar

    Brilliant app! Personally giving it 4 stars because it does not have verb conjugations for German, the language that I am learning. Otherwise a really useful app.

  11. guest-avatar

    Extremely generous for a free service with functions this abundant and trustworthy! Edit: Sometimes in French-English dictionary, after entering the word and summit, it will jump to conjugator first rather than its definition, which is not what I supposed to select. It's not a big problem but a little bit annoying when it occurred, hope it will be fixed in the future!

  12. guest-avatar

    Betrayed Heathen


    It's a very useful dictionary which I use for Greek- English translations. I recommend it to anyone who hasitates using the app or just the website. However there is one issue that can be disturbing: when the app is open and some words have already ben searched in the related dictionary, when looking another word up it shifts automatically to conjugator and you need to go again to the translation section.

  13. guest-avatar

    Incredible. Simply incredible. I should have used this app earlier rather than Google Translate and other apps to learn languages like French and German. I only have one last recommendation: Can you guys add a German Conjugation feature to the app please?

  14. guest-avatar

    I've been using this for years and wouldn't go anywhere without it. Also, it interacts very well with my phone and searching for unknown words couldn't be easier. Recommend

  15. guest-avatar

    Khoren Pilibossian


    Easy to use and like word examples under each word.Would be great to have an option when we copy a word Wordreferance opens up and shows the meaning of the word useful when reading websites or other articles.

  16. guest-avatar

    Change the search field type! Could you please change the search field type in order to make it more useful for those who has swipe keyboard? I'm sick and tired of writing letter by letter every time I want to search something. Cambiad el tipo del campo de búsqueda! Podríais cambiar el tipo del campo de búsqueda para que se pueda escribir con teclados deslizantes y no tener que escribir letra por letra? Gracias

  17. guest-avatar

    Jacqueline Pimienta


    Excellent, simply excellent. I have used the website for years and can now use the app version at a moment's notice at work.

  18. guest-avatar

    Pretty accurate with the translation, really easy to use too, i can say handsdown that is one of the best translators ever

  19. guest-avatar

    Hi. I love the app. It has been quite useful for work and my personal life. A suggestion: can it be made that the favourite terms could be seen as flashcards? It would be far more interactive and helpful to learn new vocabulary! Thanks!

  20. guest-avatar

    I just love WR!!!... Have been using it for a long time, first in the computer an now from my cell phone... It is just like virtual gold. So much recommended 😉

  21. guest-avatar

    Edit Oct 16 2019 not working on Pixelbook or Chromebook Pixel 2. Looks like a Chrome OS / Google problem with WR. Error message now is net:err_err_no_supported_proxies. I have written WR and Google. I had another app, same message and after clearing data etc, turning off and on then reopening the other app worked fine but not WR. By the way Google tells me some app developers don't keep uptodate.

  22. guest-avatar

    Very good app. It has ads but they don't pop up annoyingly. I recommend it every time I can.

  23. guest-avatar

    The app was great at first, but recently it decided not to work at all. One day, it's fine. Tge next day, I can't even search anything up. Is this happening to anyone else or just android users are having this problem?

  24. guest-avatar

    Only one flaw: the "in-text word search" doesn't work in Firefox! After all also the desktop browser plugin for Firefox is nothing compared to the chrome version :((((((

  25. guest-avatar

    Exceptional. It's perfect for language students, I study English and this app is very useful. It would be perfect if it had offline mode. De todas formas, esta aplicación es maravillosa para mejorar mi pronunciación.

  26. guest-avatar

    Only thing missing is perhaps the random word or word of the day option. An extremely helpful dictionary

  27. guest-avatar

    Great resource. Too many sneaky trackers and no way to opt out...

  28. guest-avatar

    Very good dictionary!!!! It contains lots of words, expressions and phrasal verbs. But to be perfect it needs more updates and more vocabulary. Sometimes you can't find what you need.

  29. guest-avatar

    I wanted to use the Japanese dictionary but there is no option to select Romaji or hiragana. The results always come up in kanji. This is therefore of no use to anyone who doesn't already know the language! What's the point of that?

  30. guest-avatar

    Easy to use and impressively accurate. Occasionally, there will only be examples in one language (instead of both, which would be ideal), but nonetheless it's an incredibly useful app.

  31. guest-avatar

    I love the app and the ability to quickly translate words within another app is neat. However, I was wondering if there was an option to set a default language. I only use the app for french to english translations but when I highlight a french word in another app it opens up the english dictionary and I have to manually switch to the French-to-English translator. If there was an option to set a default language that would be great. But other than that the app is great :)))

  32. guest-avatar

    Been using wr for at least 7 years now and finally decided to download the app lol. pretty good app but the only problem I found was that the French to English dictionary keeps switching to French conjugator even though I switch it back to the definitions

  33. guest-avatar

    Very useful! It does fail at times but I really like this app!

  34. guest-avatar

    Very difficult to use. Scattered. No logic. No help videos or instructions. A total bust. Back to Babbel!

  35. guest-avatar

    Francesco Valentini


    This app is so awesome, it's much better than Google Translate 😃 However, there's a bug affecting the pronunciation change... For example, if I select US or any other dialect, well, it does always default to UK-RP... While this is just a minor annoyance, it's still bothersome having to change it every time... So, could you please add a default language selector (in the settings)?

  36. guest-avatar

    The website itself is great but the app is buggy. It will often randomly switch from the dictionary to the conjugator when a search is input. Just as often, it will stop recognising any searches you put in at all, so you have to restart the app. I've had this app on 4 devices so far and have had the same problems on all. nonetheless, it remains more convenient than loading up the website.

  37. guest-avatar

    Brahian Estevez


    It's a really good app BUT you guys have to fix somethings with the conjugation of the verbs cuz I put the verb "can" and the app said that its past is "canned" so please try to fix these problems but it's a good app ... I love it.

  38. guest-avatar

    Tanneguy Jullin


    I love Wordrederence, to me it's the best dictionary on the internet. But the app seems to be bit broken. For exemple, everytime I try to look for a translation from English to French, it brings me to the "English conjugator". Why the heck cannot it stay on "English to French translation" why does it have to switch all the time, by itself to the conjugator. Please fix this! Thank you!!

  39. guest-avatar

    I love word reference and used to really appreciate this app but in recent months it has just got really buggy. I gave 3 stars, would have been 5, but for the fact it just keeps stopping working nowadays. You will type something in the search bar, press search ....and then nothing. No response from word reference, just the WR screen. Tried force stopping, nothing. Reinstalling seems to be the only thing to work. I hope they fix this. For now, I have to use the browser version.

  40. guest-avatar

    I used WR webpage frequently and was very happy to download this app because it is much more extensive than others. It also worked far better than others. But now I only get the following error messages EVERY TIME I search definition, translation, etc: "Webpage not available" "net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET". It's NOT internet issues; all my other apps and games work normally online. Wish developers fixed, but it's been like this for a while now... ☹

  41. guest-avatar

    1. there does not seem to be a back button , to navigate back to the previous page. when reading through the discussions, sometimes one wants to go back to the original page to look into the other discussions, but without a back button the only option is to go back to the main search page or else to close the app. 2. The gray text on a white background is very hard to read. I wish this app had a dark theme with white text on a black background. otherwise WordReference is always a good website

  42. guest-avatar

    J. Manuel Uriarte


    Easy to use and read, examples are stunning and highly practical.

  43. guest-avatar

    junk. need to search an English word to get the French word. but need to hear the French pronunciation? Forget it because it's not happening. Sure, you can look up the translation but you can only get the English pronunciation. It wouldn't be an issue if you swap the pronunciations. website isn't any better. there are more problems, website included but too many to name.

  44. guest-avatar

    Overall, I like the app. It bothers me that the favorite star is the default instead of the x to clear the search. I may search 100 words before choosing a favorite. I wish I could clear the search with one tap. I keep clicking the star by accident. I've been using this app for years and it's always bothered me.

  45. guest-avatar

    Eliana Capiotto


    I love it! it doesn't havw just the translations between 2 languages, but between many! and also a Collocations dictionary, which is very useful. Ah, and the Definitions dictionary too, for when you don't get the meaning from the translation only. I recommend it to all my English students.

  46. guest-avatar

    It's very annoying that the "delete" and "favourite" buttons are on the same place, and every time I try to delete a word and type a new word in the box, it somehow bookmarks the word instead of delete it. I urge to solve this problem immediately and after that this app is worth five stars.

  47. guest-avatar

    The word reference dictionary itself is 5 stars. It has no equal as far as I've seen. The app leaves some room for want. First of all, would love to be able to download a dictionary and have it available offline, this alone would probably bring it to 4.5 stars (currently have to use linguee for this). The only other problem is the occasional bugginess switching between the translator and the conjugator, not a huge deal, but annoying. Would also like to see a french definition dictionary.

  48. guest-avatar

    This "English conjugator" bug that other people have described (when you search a new word, the app often switches from the dictionary you're using, in my case English - Italian, to something called an "English conjugator", for absolutely no reason) has been going on for several months now, and is very very annoying! Is it really that difficult to fix?

  49. guest-avatar

    Nassim KAHOUADJI


    Great app The translation is precise even for expressions and axioms, I like it

  50. guest-avatar

    As a Spanish teacher, I have found WR to be an invaluable resource for myself; consequently, it is the #1 go-to for my students. Not only do the dictionaries contain a wide variety of contextual nuances for words in different situations, but the forums allow clarification with native speakers throughout the Spanish-speaking world. For a language nerd, both enlightening and at times entertaining.

  51. guest-avatar

    there's no login option from the app. and once you're able to locate the login section thru the in-app browser of the website it doesn't even let you login with Facebook like it'll show the login pop-up but does notjing more. And come on! who wants to install an app that basically reroutes you to there website only with a More mobile friendly view. 3 stars just because wordreference is my go to dictionary/thesaurus

  52. guest-avatar

    It works fine. However, I wish I coud save the history of my favorite words forever, linked to an account or something else. For instance, I lost my phone and when I installed the app on my new phone I lost the history of my favorite words.

  53. guest-avatar

    Really nice! Can find words and their different meanings with context. And différente voice accent but not Aussies one.

  54. guest-avatar

    I love this app. I've used it for four years now. The only thing I would like to see is something like a translator for phrases and sentences (like google translate?) because sometimes going word for word doesn't help.

  55. guest-avatar

    The concept is very good and it has a lot of useful features, such as synonyms or conjugation. However, it haven't worked properly for some weeks. Sometimes it doesn't look up the word or it changes dictionary by itself.

  56. guest-avatar

    You guys need to make this easier to download. I have it on my phone but it wont let me download it on to my laptop because it says no eligible devices. I have never had that problem with any app before, why have this it just slows me down from getting the things I need for school. I dont have time to fuss with this.

  57. guest-avatar

    Omar Abd Elaziz


    Wonderful, this app is really helpful and better than Google translate .

  58. guest-avatar

    it's great to have extra good help! "WordReference" is it just perfect to me. becouse, enrich my expience as student. Also make less challege my duty. (That to search and defined a word). And the most important it's free. So far, Thanks for that.

  59. guest-avatar

    Simply the best! I wish they gave the option of an instant pop up translation . That would have been awesome...

  60. guest-avatar

    Nicholas C Local


    It is very good however you can not translate large sentences for your homework this is the only downside so for lessons use this for homework use Google translate. Like the comment.

  61. guest-avatar

    It would be better if it has de possibility to keep the favorite terms on the cloud also if it would have more filters like organize by puting older terms at the beginning, I really appreciate It. It's the only things I think is missing, rest of the app Its really good. thanks

  62. guest-avatar

    WordReference puts google translate into absolute shame. WordReference is everything every translation program aspires to be, and yet, could never be. The translations are accurate and give context for regional differences in word usage. The forums are also a great resource for more obscure and coloqial words and phrases.

  63. guest-avatar

    Has completely stopped working. Tried reinstalling and restarting phone. Search button does nothing now. Another general gripe is that you're forced to choose one language pair. What if you use multiple languages on a constant basis?

  64. guest-avatar

    Great dictionary! As an English learner, I use it every day. It is really complete, you can hear the pronunciation of most of the words and the forums are really helpful. Highly recommended!

  65. guest-avatar

    I use this app to improve my english and the only thing that I can say it's that it's more than useful and complet ! Thanks to the creator of it !

    the most useful translation/dictionary ever. it even includes slang and colloquialisms! it even includes conjugations!

  67. guest-avatar

    "This site can't be reached" It keeps telling me this all the time. I love wordreference, but lately it is not working for me and it makes me very sad. Please help me, how can i overcome this problem?

  68. guest-avatar

    The visual interface... Looks rlly bad... Idk how it makes me feel like its bothering me... Annoying... Like that... Other way its good but so much visual contamination

  69. guest-avatar

    Konstantinos Parisis


    This app is full of functions and trustworthy! I love it! 5 stars

  70. guest-avatar

    It's really useful. A range of words, translation and also it's possible to see if a word is a noun, adjective and etc. Moreover, you can see synonyms.

  71. guest-avatar

    Christopher Cooper


    Links from conjugation searches in Google are net with ASP errors in the app. Is anyone testing for basic errors?

  72. guest-avatar

    This the one of the best apps at the moment for English learners. It's an absolutely amazing dictionary, it contains all the information you need for every kind of word/phrasal verb you are looking for.

  73. guest-avatar

    Since I teach ESL students, I use this app all the time. I have been using the website for a while now, but being able to carry WordReference with me everywhere I go is indeed life-changing. Truly useful and helpful!

  74. guest-avatar

    Excellent dictionary. Gives examples of usage so one can see exactly how the word is used. Notes when a word is no longer used or if it is slang. Also differentiates meanings by country. Easily switch between languages form a large choice.

  75. guest-avatar

    Samantha Robinson


    This is a really great app to translate words in and as a late french immersion student it's helped so much 💙

  76. guest-avatar

    The App itself is a little clunky, but the translations are always reliable and provide contextual meanings as opposed to Google Translate which is sleek but often incorrect. I also enjoy the ability to star and save words to practice later.

  77. guest-avatar

    Great app, amazing vocabulary for English. But the app crush really often. Its disappointing because it's really good. I'll try to look for a word but doesn't show a single suggestion or the word

  78. guest-avatar

    I've been deeply in loved with this app, if you are someone who is not counting on someone's else help, this is a very reliable and helpful tool to gain new terms and explanations

  79. guest-avatar

    The only problem: The type input. It sucks. They should allow the system keyboard instead of the stale default one. Hope they fix it

  80. guest-avatar

    This resource is amazing, but I experience persistent issues with the app itself. There are seemingly random dictionary switches making fluid use impossible. Please address !

  81. guest-avatar

    For some reason since last 3 days this app has decided to stop working. I uninstalled and reinstalled it several times. But nope... still not working.

  82. guest-avatar

    This app doesn't work on android. It never registers when you search a word, regardless of the language. They either need to fix it or you should just use a different app.

  83. guest-avatar

    It's completely stopped working. You look up a word and it gives you zero results. It does nothing. Please fix it as it's been my main language app until now.

  84. guest-avatar

    It was really perfect before, now the app doesn't work anymore, it doesn't translate. So sorry about that. If won't be resolved I'll be forsed to disinstal.

  85. guest-avatar

    the dictionary part is great, but, some of the examples of grammar are clearly about a different words, or the spanish example does not match the english, or vice versa

  86. guest-avatar

    So far so good. Does exactly what I need: easy access on my phone to wordreference's excellent dictionary. Much better than that garbage google translate: wordreference gives french (etc) genders (epic fail google)!

  87. guest-avatar

    Very useful, but started showing 'error 404' and is now unusable. Also when it has worked, it cuts off parts of the page so I can't see the translation.

  88. guest-avatar

    Great tool for anyone willing to know other words in different languages and very handy

  89. guest-avatar

    Providing a superb facility for the reader of foreign text far beyond any other dictionary currently available. I have just one small request and it is that I could purchase an advertisement free edition not a yearly subscription. Offline version?

  90. guest-avatar

    Super app. So much so that I paid for upgrade. But it stopped working yesterday! please fix!!!!!

  91. guest-avatar

    So far, it's the most reliable dictionary. I've been using it since 2014, and I've learned tons of new words. It's like my best friend; I truly love it.

  92. guest-avatar

    doesn't work in my Nexus 5x since the last update. :(. fix it please. it doesn't translate, neither show the auto fill list of words. :(.

  93. guest-avatar

    Lots of small glitches (like when I input an English word it gives me the English definition even though I had it set to Eng to French before inputting the new word)

  94. guest-avatar

    Angélica MaheG


    It's extremely slowly. The online version is better.

  95. guest-avatar

    Top notch dictó, conjugator, translator, and forums to post the most obscure questions you might have. Love it, absolutely no complaints. I also heavily use Reverso and Google Translate most of all.

  96. guest-avatar

    Website and app have been crucial for my learning of multiple languages the last 10 years. The forum are simple, excellent help and knowledgeable. Best dictionary ever

  97. guest-avatar

    the last update broke the app for me.too, afyer 1-3 searches, if my phone's screen close and then reopen the app, the search function doesnt work.

  98. guest-avatar

    Eduardo Garcia de Albeniz


    Excellent.I would give it five stars if it could work offline too but I imagine it would take a great deal of memory to hold such magnitude of information.

    The app is good but I've found some mistake on it. Please review the translations to Spanish of "after which" and "any which way".
