I am teaching my 5 granddaughters between ages of 4 to 12 and this app is a godsend! While I minored in German for two years 48 years ago and remember a lot, there were holes in my learning, things I’m not sure of, have forgotten, or never knew. With Worterbuch I can quickly check in either German or English correct nouns, articles, verbs, sentence structure, spelling, phrases, etc. it’s also easy for all but 4 year old to use. In addition, the German is current usage and there are some differences from what I learned in high school and college. My only question is how I can use family sharing since I initially uploaded to only one device. Great product!!!
Came to the USA at age 3 as Displaced Persons but parents spoke German primarily in the home. I did take 2 years of German in college so I could learn to read and write. Have traveled numerous times back to the Heimat and family members are always astounded by my grasp of German vocabulary…albeit with an accent- LoL however, this app always helps me to choose the best words and also how to spell them when needed. Vielen Dank noch mal!
I like this dictionary more than other ones I've tried, and the examples are helpful. However there is a 5-second delay sometimes when opening up each entry. Edit: I wasn’t using the paid version. Without the ads it works flawlessly!
Sometimes the exact sentence structure used in this translator an average German can identify it was a translated sentence because the meaning is not exact, or the correct word was not used, in usually the way it was used. Realizing German can be very difficult language to interpret with all the secular dialects, to obtain the exact meaning, overall the format and layout is very good and 80% of sentence interpretation is good.
There are two issues I have. First, the nouns don’t provide a gender(der,die,das) making it necessary to find the gender elsewhere. Second, it’s often problematic converting from German to English and vice-versa. Beyond that, it’s very good.
I don't have to carry an entire dictionary around in my pocket anymore
This thing saved my life when I was living in Germany. It gives you context and everything, which is super helpful when you're trying to translate a work with multiple meanings. Really great app. (I don't know if you guys read these, but if you're looking to expand into more languages than you have now, but I'm looking for a good Norwegian one and nothing has been able to reach my standard, which is this)
All in all, it's a solid offline English German dictionary, however when translating to German nouns, it leaves out the articles Der, Die, and Das on some things and that makes knowing the proper conjugation very difficult. Google Translate by comparison shows the articles before the noun in light grey, but is not as intuitive as this app in terms of situational context. In this app, if you type any word you'll get an array of context based results, and you just pick the one closest to what you are trying to say. For the future, I would recommend more robust amount of Der, Die, and Das. Other than that, very good for what it is.
In trying to improve and polish my German using an iPad, I find this dictionary most useful. I can toggle to it to find a word, then toggle back to the article I am reading. After completing the article I can return to the dictionary and use the history feature to review all the words I looked up, as well as review many common expressions and idioms that use that particular word. A very helpful app indeed.
Hello there…i'll not be boring to write a huge comment it's only two points 1-the app crashes and crashes every time i write the word (TEIL) in german and pressing on it to get the meanings. 2-you actually lose something very important in this update and it's the fast knowing what the words mean…like before we were just typing the word and the translation was immediately down there without needing to tape on the word so please return this point to this nice major update guys... And in the end well done good and nice update guys
1. When you want to leave a feedback from within the app and you have multiple email addresses set up on your device, you'll be stuck in the menu (I have about 10 addresses) There's no back button. It's a programming mistake. A clear bug. 2. Addidionally, after just checking 3 words in the English/German dictionary, I found at least one spelling error (dog breath should translate to Mundgeruch). I'm a native German speaker and I know.
Random ads + no definite article for nouns = bad choice
The app is a moderate dictionary with most features that you'd expect from and that are similar to the other German <--> English dictionary apps. However, with this app you will experience heavy displays of random ads. Another negative point is that for nouns the app does not display the noun's definite article such as der, die, or das. That is irresponsible, especially for the non-native German speakers since the definite articles play a huge role in German grammar.
This a very useful app. I am learning a new language. I only noticed that sometimes when I entered a word the screen shakes. I am learning the right pronunciation. Can you mark the syllable that needs to be pronounced louder. Thank you. Good job.
I've greatly enjoyed using this dictionary app. The words update as you type them, suggesting related words or helping with spelling if you're unsure. I highly recommend it to beginning German speakers.
It's very useful and simple. The examples are as many as needed to understand the meanings and it suggests many words of same type to get familiar to how they're used in sentences and in which situations. Thanks to the developer.
I have an old iPod Touch. I live in Munich. I use it to translate words on all the signs I see. The built in dictionary knows about 90% of the words. I don't need wifi for text translation. I never really use the feature that pronounces the words. It needs wifi. This app is still useful anyways.
When learning German nouns it is crucial to memorize their gender as well, and yet this dictionary is missing that very important piece of information. Sample sentences would also help. In other words, include all that a regular dictionary would include. Other than that, it is quite useful for quick reference.
Two minor critiques, it's a little leggy, and there is no conjugations, plural forms, gender info ect. Despite that this app was very useful in Germany, it includes a lot of obscure words and many examples of how to use words, I love this app and use it for everything
This bilingual dictionary has many words, terms, and technical jargon; unfortunately it lacks almost all grammar. It doesn't even tell you the gender of a noun, which in German is very important to know. It seems to be a good intermediate dictionary, but not one I'd recommend for beginners.
Search function is great. Lots of words, lots of examples, and really easy to find the exact phrase you're looking for. BUT ALL GERMAN WORDS HAVE GENDER, AND IT'S AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THE TRANSLATION FROM ENGLISH. I had to use a second dictionary (with a crappy interface and poor search, but good grammar) to be able to write correctly.
The new version 8 "redesigned interface" puts the ads in the middle of the screen between the definition and the example sentences. This has always been a minimal dictionary - more like a glossary. Clearly evolving into just a vehicle to show ads.
