I love it! I think I'll be using the flashcard function a lot. Tried Anki, but it was
much too complicated for me.

From the warm response you've gotten here, it seems you're doing a good job on this project.

However, not many languages are supported (yet) so it's still limited in usefulness. You mentioned that complex
languages such as Thai might never be supported but there are several other languages that could be, such as
more European languages, etc. The language that I would find most useful, for example, is Dutch.

LingQ is expensive and using LWT online is slow, and setting it up and running it locally is a pain, so I am glad to
hear that there are more alternatives popping up!

It's in fact very easy to set up LWT locally (e.g. on a Windows machine):
1. Download and install EasyPHP
2. Download LWT, unzip, and copy into the www directory of EasyPHP.
3. Rename the file connect_easyphp.inc.php to connect.inc.php.
4. Start EasyPHP and start the local web in your browser.

That's it. I really don't understand why you call this "a pain".

I tried. PHP12.0 is up and running, the traffic lights are green, lwt_v_1_4_10 is in the www directory, connect.inc.php file renamed, browser fails to find connection to 127.0.0.1/lwt.

Does it require dot net? Are there any firewall implications? Is there a trouble shooting guide?

The readlang site looks nice.

Edit: Aha, my local server address seems to be: 127.0.0.1:8887

LWT looks nice too.

If you don't use EasyPHP, the procedures and/or the URL may be different.
If you don't rename lwt_v_1_4_10 to lwt, the URL is different: http://..../lwt_v_1_4_10 .
Please look into the documentation, and/or look or ask in the
help forum.

No, just MySQL, PHP and of course Apache.
No, everything is behind your firewall.
Yes: http://lwt.sourceforge.net/.

I've just updated the site, which now includes more languages, including Dutch :)

There's also a new sidebar which can be opened from the reader page, where you can look up a more detailed translation in
Word Reference (if your language pair is supported, it supports translating between English and the more popular
languages). In this sidebar you can also edit or delete the most recently generated flashcard.

Hope you like it, and please keep the feedback coming. I'm especially keen to hear about any bugs or problems you
encounter.

(If you want to post feedback outside this forum, you can do so here: http://readlang.uservoice.com)

Might I recommend www . mijnwoordenboek . nl
for the Dutch sidebar dictionary? Superb work so far on this tool. This is amazing.
Any thoughts of open sourcing it to be hosted a la lwt?
