German-English dictionary – Meaning pairs, phrases, and example sentences: 255,062
The DictZone German-English dictionary has over 250,000 meaning pairs, example sentences, and synonyms for German-speaking users. In this description, we will show you how to use it and help you navigate through its numerous additional features.
In the search field at the top of the page, you need to enter the word you're interested in, and you will see the expressions suggested by the dictionary as you type. The EN or HU icon next to them indicates the language in which the results are available.
By clicking on the entry you like, you will access the English word's details, where you can see its German translations. The results are grouped by parts of speech, and at the end of each row, if available, we mark the translation frequency of the given meaning pair.
After English words, we also indicate their inflections in square brackets:
You can switch the direction of the search by pressing the button in front of the search field. While the dictionary tries to provide results in the opposite English-German direction, for more accurate results, we recommend selecting the appropriate direction during your search.
Among the search results, by clicking on the small downward arrow next to the word, a local menu will appear where you can submit a new meaning, modify an existing one, or mark it for deletion.
Whichever option you choose, always provide what you consider to be the correct expression, briefly explain it, or link to the source. Then enter your email address so we can notify you of the result!
By clicking on the sound icons in front of the words, you can listen to the pronunciation of the respective element, both in American English and British English, without the need for a separate player. Of course, this icon can also be found in front of German expressions, so you can even listen to German pronunciation. This feature comes in handy when you are just getting acquainted with the German language.
Beneath the exact translation, you will also find related expressions, including sentence parts or phrases related to your search.
The German-English translator also offers several additional features. At the bottom of each word's page, we provide links to Google Search, Wikipedia, or Wiktionary, where the expression you are looking for automatically appears as a result.
This is useful when you want to look up occurrences of a particular word or its Wikipedia article.
On the right side of the page, you will find a sidebar with your search history at the top. This can be especially helpful when searching for longer texts, as you may forget previously looked-up meanings. In such cases, simply click on the history of the German-English dictionary, and the translation will appear again.
The sidebar also links to other parts of the DictZone dictionary, where you can complement your search. Here, you can find the list of irregular English verbs, plural forms of English nouns, the English alphabet, information about conversion of length units in English, assistance with conversion between American and English volume units, and a Fahrenheit and Celsius temperature conversion. All of these are tools related to English or American life and everyday use.
If you are familiar with the International Phonetic Alphabet, the DictZone dictionary also assists in learning pronunciation. Check the phonetic representation of English expressions, which is separated according to British and American English. The British pronunciation is always indicated with UK, while the American pronunciation is marked with US.
You can read more about phonetic symbols on the International Phonetic Alphabet Wikipedia page.
Learning languages is useful for many reasons; it allows you to communicate anywhere in the world, makes it easier to find work in the growing international and multinational markets, exercises your brain, improves your cognitive abilities, memory, and even boosts your self-confidence when you speak multiple languages fluently.
