Linguee.com – Searching through millions of translations online

Nowadays, anyone who wants to translate an item of vocabulary into

Spanish, French, German or Portuguese consults an online dictionary. But

how are you supposed to find the right translation for compound

expressions such as “strong evidence”, “strong arms”, “strong

relationship” or “strong opinion”? Phrases like this crop up in every

text – and the limitations of the regular online dictionaries soon

become apparent.

But straightforward assistance is now on hand in the form of a new, free

web service called Linguee.com which permits you to sift through

enormous volumes of translated texts for words and word combinations.

According to its operators, Linguee.com has access to around a thousand

times more textual material translated by human linguists than any

previous online dictionary.

As of today, this service is now available for the language pairs

Spanish-English, French-English and Portuguese-English. The

German-English version has already been well established for the past

twelve months and handles more than 500,000 searches each day.

Novel approach: Finding terms within the context of whole sentences

The revolutionary feature of Linguee is that you search texts that have

been produced by a human translator and posted on the internet. In this

way, the user gets a broad yet detailed overview of how vocabulary is

used in context. Linguee’s two founders, Gereon Frahling and Leonard

Fink, have developed a technology that is currently unmatched. A web

crawler is constantly analysing the internet, looking out for new

multilingual pages. In this way, Linguee enables the user to track down

extremely rare technical terminology.

Clear presentation: Items sensibly arranged and smart provision for

extra information

The Linguee user can see from a pie chart how the translations on offer

compare for frequency of usage. Examples of each term quoted in complete

sentences show which translation is used in which context. Furthermore,

the user can click on a source link and the relevant web page will open

up showing the entire surrounding context.

Global reach: Covering the major world languages

The principle can be transferred to any language. “Linguee is first and

foremost a ‘technology’. It is therefore a natural step to extend this

service to a global market,” says Gereon Frahling. Other languages in

the pipeline include Italian, Chinese, Arabic and Russian.
