    "Many dictionaries in only one device"

    ABBYY Lingvo Dictionaries is a useful application for Android that lets you look up everything you need in the electronic versions of the world's most popular dictionaries and translators.

    Once you've purchased this app you will have access to 58 basic dictionaries. If you're willing to pay more, you can purchase more than 200 extra ones for 20 languages. After you've successfully installed the dictionaries, you can start typing the words you want to translate and selecting the dictionary that you want to use. The result will provide the pronunciation sound file, the fully translation, synonyms, transcriptions and some examples, depending on the type of dictionary.

    With a clean design and a simple and useful user interface, ABBYY Lingvo Dictionaries is a simple tool for looking up words and learning the basic notions of a language easily. Just a small note: given than you can also use the internet to translate the words, we think that maybe the developers, ABBYY Software House, should consider lowering the prize or offering some of the basic dictionaries for free.

    The free dictionaries simply don't appear after downloading them, that is either an app problem or is simply misleading. Given that the Russian dictionaries are working, it might be that the other dictionaries are there to mislead us into thinking that it has lots of free dictionaries.

    Definitely worth spending money on dictionaries for such a neat offline dictionary application! Must have for keen language learners!!! Please add dark theme cause eyes get tired quickly while reading from the bright white background. Thanks ABBYY Team!

    It's been more than a month, only Russian dictionaries are offered with discounts. It's helpful if English explanatory set discounted as well. Thanks!

    The dictionaries are good, but the program... A couple months ago after update the two window mode stop working with this app. This is really inconvenient, you need infinitely to switch between two programs (Nexus 9). And there is no such great feature like watching over the changes in clipboard. And now the main window is always divided on two columns and this doesn't configurable.
