dict.cc: English-German
and Multilingual Dictionary

The goal of dict.cc is to make it possible to share your vocabulary knowledge with the world. This is the main difference from other translation services - every user is encouraged to contribute to the English-German dictionary by adding and/or verifying translation suggestions. The resulting vocabulary database can be downloaded and used for free.

Besides browsing the dictionary or searching for German-English translations you can also ask and answer questions related to the German or English language using the translation forum. To improve your language skills try the vocabulary trainer.

Disclaimer: The correctness of the translations cannot be guaranteed (nobody is perfect), but all input will be checked carefully. If you spot an error, please report it using the info button [i] located next to each translation within the search results.

2022-11-16: EN/FR - 100k!
The first one of the English dictionaries reaches 100,000 entries! Congratulations to the French-English team!
2022-11-06: 20 years of dict.cc! (and a new feature ...)
20 years - wow, that's a long time and reason enough to be a little proud. :-) Proud of 24,714,000,000 (almost 25 billion) answered translation lookups to date, 2 million currently active dict.cc app installations and above all, proud of the loyal community of contributors who make all this possible!

Even after 20 years, dict.cc is still a one-man business, and also my personal life project. I started dict.cc when I was 24, and now I'm 44 somehow. ;-) Almost half my life already, I wonder where the time went! And this project is not just a job, it's also meant to be my contribution to society, helping with easier access to education and helping to break down barriers between people who don't speak the same language.

When dict.cc started in 2002, there was no Facebook (2004), Twitter (2006) or TikTok (2016), and even Wikipedia (2001) was still in its infancy. The devices we now call smartphones didn't even exist back then. By Internet standards, the website is as old as Methuselah and unfortunately you can see that in the design, which is not sufficiently optimized for smartphones. That's why I'm currently working on expanding the new "responsive" website, which is currently mainly used as a mobile website, to also integrate the content-creating areas (Contribute/Forum) in order to eventually replace the old website. But that's going to take a while, because unfortunately, due to maintenance and support tasks, I only have limited time for programming.

Here are the current numbers for the stats:
1,249,364 translations in German-English, 2,058,377 in the other language pairs
1,407,386 audio recordings, 1,359,859 inflections and 387,746 illustrations
292,259 registered users, of which 37,190 are contributors

New Feature: Shuffle!
In IT projects you often see small special features for anniversaries, like little games or animations. I also came up with a playful little extra feature, inspired by funny posts you often see on social media. I'm unlocking the feature today, but it will also remain available in the long term. It's an anagram search engine. You can enter words, short phrases or even names and it shows you "hidden meanings" that appear when you shuffle the letters. The results can be shared as images on social media. This will also serve as a little bit of advertising for dict.cc while providing a playful approach to language. It would be nice if you could try this feature and send me your discoveries using the "suggest for gallery" feature.
Try it or see examples!

Finally, I would like to once again express my heartfelt thanks to all the contributors who helped dict.cc grow and thrive so wonderfully. Especially to those who have been doing so for years, with great commitment - regardless of whether it's vocabulary maintenance, voice recordings or illustrations. You are the backbone of dict.cc and I thank you for that!

Here's to the next 20 years!
Cheers, Paul
2022-09-09: Readers of the "Apps" magazine made dict.cc their number 1 app for language learning in Germany!
2022-06-09: The "audio like" feature is now also available in the apps.
