If you want to hear them all you will need more than two months but I’m sure you have better plans for the next ones. Happy summer for everyone! :)
Along with improvements in search results for both words and pronunciations we have added more ways to find the words you want.
First, maybe one of them most requested features: search for translations. When you search for a simple word like ‘house‘, ‘fish‘, ‘love‘, etc. we will show in the sidebar a new tab called ‘Translations’. There you can find that word translated into more than 40 languages, in the appropiate script of the language and with a Forvo pronunciation.
See an example: House translations.
Second, search in categories. Now you can search in the categories gathered in Forvo, almost 100,000 at this moment, so you could easily words related to ‘music‘, ‘cities‘, etc. Ideal to learn to pronounce words grouped by topics.
We are very honored and proud to be included in the ‘100 protagonistas iberoamericanos de 2013‘ a selection of men and women who have been relevant the past year, according to Spanish newspaper ‘El País’.
As a great ending to this terrific year in Forvo HQ, we are happy to announce two big new partners who are using Forvo pronunciations. Both are leaders in their languages:
– Youdao Dictionary is the largest dictionary in China with more than 300 million people using their Apps.
– Hiztegiak Elhuyar is the number one Basque dictionary and translator.
Welcome on board and thanks for counting on us.
