Throughout the last few weeks we've been releasing some new developments which should make using Lingro even easier -- this is just a quick update for those of you who haven't noticed our recent changes or received our e-mail.
Lingro Toolbar for Mozilla Firefox
If you're using Firefox, you can install the Lingro Toolbar to have clickable translations and our instant-lookup dictionary on any page you visit! This is especially useful for sites like Facebook that don't work too well with the web-based version of Lingro. And of course all the words you translate will be available in your word history so you can review them. To install the extension click here.
You can also visit the official Lingro Toolbar page at the Mozilla addons site to view and post comments and ratings. The extension is still in beta, so let us know if you like it!
New languages: Portuguese, Chinese, Russian and Dutch
We were finally able to add several often-requested languages to all tools available through Lingro. With the new additions, we now have 121 dictionaries with over 5 million words and almost 9 million translations. You can see the list of supported languages and detailed statistics on the Lingro dictionary builder page.
We are now using Google Translate to show automatic translations if we didn't have a direct match in our dictionary. It's a great resource if you're trying to figure out the meaning of a specific phrase that isn't in the dictionary. We hope that this will be useful for you, but please be careful when using such translations.
