In 2014, I wrote a quick static site to help speed up the process of making flashcards in the way suggested by Gabriel Wyner in his book Fluent Forever. Gabriel wrote a blog post on automating your searches, but his method required some software that I did not or could not use, for some reason I’ve since forgotten.
Word Multi Search is located at https://wms.peterextexia.com and it allows you to search for a word in a foreign language, and depending on the language, it will give you a result on several sites at once:
- A monolingual dictionary (one that native speakers of the language would use)
- A translation dictionary
- Google Images (using the localized version for that language)
- Google Translate
- Tatoeba (a site with example sentences containing the word)
- Linguee (another example sentence site)
- RhinoSpike (audio recorded by natives using the word)
- Forvo (another audio site, but just individual words instead of longer text)
Word Multi Search is open source and can be found on GitHub.
