Outstanding And Versatile Tool

I purchased LingvoEnglishDictionary in spring 2011. I have used it at least several times a week, if not many times a day since. I work primarily with English-Ukrainian, but have also needed Russian, Slovak, and Hungarian at times. In Ukrainian I use the basic, explanatory, and pronunciation dictionaries. I lived in Ukraine for four months and this thing was the single most valuable tool I brought. It works really well, has tons of useful info, and almost never crashes. Update: 2017 I have used this almost daily for six years. Awesome product!


Fantastic Russian Dictionary

The Lingvo Russian dictionary is an excellent resource. And I have noticed significant improvements since I started using it several years ago. There are oil and gas term gaps so was wondering if I could forward some when I find so they can be added is all.


Pulled a dirty trick on longtime users

Don’t trust this company. LingvoEnglishDictionary is a replacement for a Lingvo translator’s dictionary app that users paid less to use, but had most definitions needed to perform accurate translations. The old app was first “put out to pasture,” left unmaintained and unsupported. Then it was pulled entirely from LingvoEnglishDictionary Store. Now there’s LingvoEnglishDictionary that’s taking the place of a product I already paid for. By the way, it has an almost identical icon and name. In-app purchases of the dictionaries I need in order to have a standard working translator’s dictionary would now cost me well over $300, and if I wanted it to be more complete, over $500. No way. Since my old app is dead and gone, I’m going to buy paper dictionaries with that money and scan/OCR process it all myself so no one can yank it out from under me again. Don’t be surprised if your several-hundred-dollar investment into the in-app purchases disappears in the next 4 years or so. I’m sure they’ll do the same thing to LingvoEnglishDictionary when they find another way to re-release it to make everyone pay even more for something they already paid for.


The free Russian English alone is first-class

So far I use only the free Russian-English and English-Russian dictionary. And it is marvelous... far richer than the expensive Oxford version. It includes copious example sentences. I am extremely happy with LingvoEnglishDictionary and now use it as my primary Russian dictionary. One suggestion for improvement, since English speakers learning Russian are also users: the stress marks of Russian words should be shown. This is vital for foreigners whose native language is not Russian. Most dictionaries have this. One further note: i own some other ABBY apps and all of them are very good.


One of the most useful apps I ever paid for

I’ve been using ABBYY Lingvo for ages and never needed another dictionary app. My native language is Russian and their dictionaries are excellent.


Changing keyboard layout

Wow! Unbelievable! I’ve waited for this usability improvement for years! Now you did it! You made my day! Thanks! 🥳 PS. Switching keyboard layout on the keyboard doesn’t change language I translate from. Looks like a bug. If I switch the language at the top though, the keyboard switches as it should. Please check!


Fabulous app for Russian

LingvoEnglishDictionary is wonderful for Russian. It’s able to search for and show declensions. The main thing it is missing is accents, which I very much hope they will add.


5 stars

I’ve been using Lingvo for at least 12 years. I love the variety of different dictionaries.


Upgrade for iPhone X/XS/XS max

I love your app, using this everyday. I’m giving you 4/5 because it is only one app in my phone that is not working on my screen. Please update it to the new phone generation. Thank you


Wish it had iCloud sync

Love LingvoEnglishDictionary , have been using ABBY dictionaries for a very long time, since it was just a PC version. Would give 5stars if only it had iCloud sync of saved cards.


Awesome translator!

Thanks for the update! Everything is working perfectly now🙌🏻


The best dictionary

I am a Russian native speaker, a linguist working in the USA. Abbyy Lingvo is the best dictionary out there! Thank you for making such a great app!


Pretty good but weird suggestions.

The title says it. I search reread and the first three words are rear, retreat and reed 😑. Other then that all is good. PS. It is good for kids too. Especially if they can write.


Updates - NOPE! Bad support - YES!

It’s been almost 1 year since iPhone X released and still no update for it. Developers doesn’t care about their product. Don’t waste your money! Application is slow and old. That’s why I deleted it. And in the future I will never buy products from ABBYY.


Love it

Great application for all who like learning new languages :)


Quite useless nowadays

Especially if you’re looking for something quick and smart. It’s an old dictionary in a digital wrap. It is slow. It doesn’t understand context, can not translate phases.


The best English/Russian dictionary

By far the best vocabulary.


Doesn’t take all screen on an iPhone XS

Please update LingvoEnglishDictionary to take the entire screen. iPhone X is more than a year old already.


Doesn’t support IPhone X

Application wasn’t updated for ages, doesn’t support Iphone x :( Guys don’t care about the product, the only thing they do is spam you with new “offers”


Best dictionary

App is great, I use it with pleasure, but please czech dictionary.


Dark mode

Thank you for split view on iPad!! Now I hope you will bring us dark mode like we have on the Mac app!


looks bad on iphone x

4 stars only for bad iphone x support.
