push finally, i hate that notifications

Dima Borzov

Piece of crap The shitfest starts with promos for random dictionary sales being pushed into notifications.Want a £5 sale on a synonyms dict in your mail? Does not matter if not, you will get it anyway. All the dicts are sold through in-app purchases separately. The catalogue for these dictionaries is an abomination: there is no way to tell which ones you could possibly need and to figure it out is apparently left as an exercise to the user. There is no way to even bookmark words you looked up befor

Michael Khaimov

Adverts in notification area are disturbing 1. Advertisements of new dictionaries and promos are pretty annoying. Would be great if you'll add the option for turning it off. 2. Unfriendly dictionaries management when you have a lot of those.

Bartosz X

For that price It's the biggest crap I have ever seen... No options, no possibilities to use external databases, limited and very expensive list of possible dictionaries, no learning adds, poor description before bought. Much less possibilities then FREE Google translate

Alexey Baskakov

Wrong in-app pricing All in-app prices are shown in USD. Checkout shows different amount for AUD.

Boris Belousov

Nicest dictionary app Everything works smoothly, there are many examples and word forms (rather helpful for German). The only wish I have is to be able to use cards, the way it's done on the iPhone. That was my primary method for learning new words, which I'm missing a lot on the Android :(

Sergey Vishnevskiy

Annoying in-app ads Lingvo started to send promo notifications about discounts on dictionaries. It is not possible to disable this feature. To uninstall is the only option at the moment

Vadim Ryabykin

Add favorite words feature On Android Lollipop it offers to download sound file. But actually nothing happened. Please, fix it.


Best dictionary! Especially with the new features

Aliaksei Sapach

lots of notification spam

Alexandr Solo

Sound files problem There is a problem to download and install sound files. Please fix it.

sqog forest

I,m nonplussed bouht core app and ... can not buy dictionaries. Great deal. Any attempt to download dicts leavs me with something like "... transaction looks too risky ... try again in 30 mins ...". Checked card - ok. Got it for two weeks (almost) now. Definitely weirded. Before used this dictionaries without problems on iOS and Android as well. Now looking for worthy substitution. It is a pity.

Dolo Zomo

Do not Show Notifications Spam notoficatons make me insane. Even if you deactivate them in android app menu they appear later on again. Miracle.

frank r

Must buy universal pkg to show stress Doesn't show stress for Russian words in essentials version, even though I clicked on the "show stress" option in settings. You have to buy the universal Russian-English package as well. Even that package only show stress on headwords, not examples.

Alexey Slepkanev

It would be nice to have some basic flashcards functionality.

Roman Kostin

Very poor version for the prce Such version must be free. This paid one is worse than other free dictionaries

A Google User

What's happened??? I've been using these app for years, but something happened recently, e.g. in italian -russian dictionary, the simpliest verbs like venire, vivere disappeared! Can you fix it please!

Ice Lander

The app deleted after every switch off of the phone. Today I installed Abbyy Lingvo 10 times, and 10 times i see the app deleted after reboot. Now i can't use Abbyy Lingvo with English - Russian Premium set and other bought dictionaries.

Phoebe Caulfield

How do I make cards to revise? I saw that on iPhone you can create cards to revise the words you want to learn. However I can't find this option on Android. Help? Or clarification maybe?

Daniel Preobrazhensky

Greatest dictionaries ever I love ABBYY Lingvo for its handiness. Its dictionaries conain large sets of words, phrases and abbreviations – just what I need. All I would like to add is a more slick material design.

Rolans Karelins

Very good dictionary Hello, I am russian guy, living in England and I can say that this dictionary is one of the best on the market along with Google translate, Yandex.Translate and Promt which I use as well. It provides very comprehensive translation of words with examples which I can use in my everyday conversations. Also I like to check ponouncation of different new words, it increases my confidence of using them on the next day at work. Quality of pronouncation is much better than in Google translate. Google makes mistakes.

Hot Giraffe

push notifications again! I have notifications turned off in Settings but five minutes ago – a push notification! about some sale or another! awful, just awful

Iurie Malic

Has no pt&lt;&gt;ro dictionary. PT&lt;&gt;RO is very poor. Has no possibility to interact between dictionaries.

Pavel V.

push finally, i hate that notifications

Roman Boytsiv

Best Support Ever I had problems with transferring my purchases from iOS Lingvo to Android Lingvo and Abby support restored my purchases super fast. Great app and great attitude to clients

Hovik Vova

I have a problem with new version on my galaxy tab 3. I have updated the app to the last version ,but all remained the same.I have not a splited clipboard and many many words that has the dictionary on my z3 sony tab galaxy 3 has not.with z3 compact all works just great .what can be the problem?

Igor Zatsarevnyy

Almost perfect now! :) Thanks for the update! Now it works just great. The only thing I _truly_ miss is to see a transcription in quick translation pop-up windows when I tap the word in Moon+ Reader Pro. As a result I have to launch ABBY hundreds of times to check the pronunciation. That is a bit annoying. Though I am not sure whether it is related to ABBY functionality or the reader.

Emin Yılmaz

Doesn't translate clipboard :( In the iphone, my ABBYY Lingvo used to translate what is in the clipboard. I was hoping it would do the same in android as i use split screen, or even a floating ABBYY using android capabilities. Alas, I have to copy and paste myself... Otherwise good database...

Greg Kochaniak

Works for me again! Thank you, now works fine with 3rd party apps also on Android 6. Back to 5* rating from me!

Daniel Wozniuk

Doesn't work without network Why I can't use this dictionary when I don't have good connection? About one year ago it worked great...

Kanykei Zhunushova

I am happy with the app. I was looking for this kind off app.,but could not find, finally I have it now.

Igor Konev

American sound doesn't work when I click on the speaker icon, only British sound does. Please fix.

Joonseok Wee

Best russian dictionary app ever The best it is among more than dozen apps I have used. If the search history allowed more words, it would help remind me of words that I had newly learned.

Dmitriy Galkin

Thanks for assistance ! I'm having problems on my Nexuses 7 & 5. Long tap on word in Reading programs direct to closing Lingvo apps.

Vadim Cherkas

Love it You are doing great products, wish you luck.

Qinye Hu

Can't import dsl file No japanese dictionary for sell, no way to import my own dictionary. How can I use this.

Ioannis Krommydas

Very nice app Very nice app. Things i think that could be improved: Adding more words to Russian-Greek dictionary. I don't think that permission device & app history is necessary.

Constantine Vorobyov

Make a pop up translation window disappear just on tap outside this windows, without pressing back button

Andrew P

Bugs! American pronunciation doesn't work. Translation via camera doesn't work. What on earth is wrong with you developers? Fire your QA.

Sasha Uomo

Urgent. Thanks. Please, add to android version opportunity to create a new word card (like in IOS version).

Mariia Ezz Eldin

Very useful for learning. A lot of examples how to use a word.

Askar Aidarkhan

Got refund for unsuccessful process Support replied in a week. An error occurred during the purchase process, even though transaction was successful. Couldn't buy dictionaries.

John Hall

Very good... Very good, but would be even better if, for Russian words, stress was shown on all inflections and not just on basic forms. This is essential information for a non-native speaker who wants to use words not just in writing but in speech

jak jak

Thank you. You are doing good. But less words. Please add more words.

A Google User

Like it! It's very solid app. I've been using it for ages.

suneel kumar

Not free, not even trial for 1 day

Alexander Mordvintsev

Please fix the camera bug on nexus 5x Live camera image is flipped upside down.

Constantine Shpikat

on nexus 7 is not updating for about a few weeks I think the reason can be Android 6 upgrade

Nikita Yarko

Best app ever!!! But scince the last few updates it started always hanging up when searching translation with no network signal available (e.g. in subway) or when signal is very poor (like EDGE), but once I switching off Mobile Data in phone settings as my ABBYY gets working well!!


No free dictionaries??????????? "They are no free dictionaries in it. Everything is on sell.add some free dictionaries for free. Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oksana Poliakova

poor lacks too many words, doesn't translate from English to spanish and vice versa

Benas Franckevicius

Where did the Lithuanian dictionaries go? Installed ABBYY on my tablet and all of the Lithuanian dictionaries are missing. Looking forward to your response

Artem Demyanov

Best dictionary app Please, update UI to material! This would be amazing

Katerina Komova

Finnish language Hi, i bought your application to learn Finnish. Unfortunately, I can't get how to create cards with words I would like to learn. Looks like it doesn't work with Finnish language. Could you please check it? Otherwise I really enjoy your application:)

Denis St Pierre

One More Let down From Android Developers Downloaded app and purchased Collins spanish dictionary. Took about an hour for the dictionary to be available for download. Integrated it with Moon Reader pro. It works but only part of the definition appears in the pop up window, requiring the opening of the app. This makes it less convenient but still better than having to copy, switch apps paste to perform a search.

Sergey Tachenov

I admit, before downloading it I hesitated a little bit because it obviously needs to download dictionaries (they can't possibly be free) and there is a lot of silly apps that download data to internal memory with no option to use the SD card. But then I thought, hey, it's ABBYY, these guys know what they are doing! Well, turns out that they don't. There is NO option to download dictionaries to the SD card. Apparently ABBYY doesn't really need your money after all, so they are limiting your ability to buy dictionaries by the amount of free internal memory you have. The funny thing is, the app itself CAN be moved to the SD card. Frees about 50 megabytes, so you can put a few dictionaries there. And of course, if you have an expensive phone with loads of internal memory, then you should have no problem whatsoever.

Pavlo Burchenko

Discount offer doesn't work Dear team, a recent discount offer seems to be not working. In the list of discounts it's shown as $1.99 but when buying it, the price rises to €5.26. For the other discounted $1.99 dictionaries the transaction costs vary from €1.10 to €2.26. Could you please fix discrepancy with €5.26, explain pricing policy, exchange rate applied and please consider distinguishing promotions for users from different areas, if they are not available for every user?

A Google User

Why you guys clear the text field after app is completely loaded? It's extremely annoying. You start the app, the text field appears, you start entering the word you are interested in and then, suddenly, BAM, text field is cleared and you need to retype the word again. So annoying, so stupid.

Aanei Daniel

Need to support more languages Please support Romanian language and please make a black theme of the app for good sake!!regards

Tatyana Durova

Can't restore my purchased dictionaries I bough some dictictionaries last spring, but after I haven't free space in smartphone and deleted abby lingvo. Now, after second installation, I can't restore my purchased dictionarios. How can I do it? Please, any support..

A Google User

Paste button needed Please, add paste button in the field for entering the word. The main idea of dictionary is to translate words from clipboard. Now it is inconvenient to paste word from clipboard.

Ivan Shwed

Liked it Things to improve: 1. Overall design feels outdated. The app UI is stuck in KitKat era, it needs a new modern look. 2. When I look up a word, open an dictionary entry, and want to look up another one, I have to press the back button in order to start a new search. Is it possible to pin a search bar permanently on the top?


Good application, but in camera mode my camera turns the image. (Nexus 5X)

Aqil Cabbarli

The best dictionary app ever Using since 2011 on other platform. Now even better on android.

Aziz Ibnalisher

Best of the best Excellent, cz it has good vocabulary and each word has lots of meanings with synomyms and examples

Fabian Gibbs

Nice looking app But you still have to purchase the dictionary?

Alex Medinski

Several years on Android and still no single-tap translation for the text on the screen. It's a shame!

Valentina Deeva

Still missing flashcards Great app, excellent dictionaries. Missing built in flashcards which were available in iphone app. Looking forward for the development...

Begench R

Before downling this app it says it is free but after asking to purchase this app.

Oybek Turayev

Arabic support Does it include english to arabic dictionary?

A Google User

Отлично It's freezing when search words if the Internet connection is weak or absent.

Nitin Sangwan

Everything is paid Only downloading the app is free. All dictionaries/translations are paid. Basic English dictionary is $10! Nothing wrong with charging for the product but the information isn't as clearly stated as it should be on Play Store.

Daniel Wozniuk

Still doesn't work without network Why I can't use this dictionary when I don't have good connection? Also American pronunciation doesn't work

Kostyantyn Tyrsa

Lingo stop working After last update lngvo does not work. It shows "exception while initializing engine"

Chris Carver

Rip off Bought this for certain languages they had, then they removed those languages. A totally useless app.

Gevorg Tovmasyan

Cant restore my purchases ((( I've lost a lot of money buying dictionaries. Now I can't restore them.

Dmytro Chyzhykov

Doesn't display the keyboard During extensive use application starts freezing and stops displaying the keyboard when I tap the search field. Only killing the process helps to deal with the problem.

Jonh Kelvin

Nice work Keep it up!

Maria Menshikova

Paid for the dictionaries, but they do not appear on the list after the installation. I do not see them! I cannot use something I paid for!

Arseny Semenov

Some problem There is a problem when connection is poor, translation is not working despite of offline dictionary is already downloaded. You need to set airplane mode to start translation. Please, fix it.

A Google User

Paste button needed Please, add paste button in the field for entering the word. The main idea of dictionary is to translate words from clipboard. Now it is inconvenient to paste word from clipboard.

Vladimir Barsukovskiy

clipboard and selected when will this app be able to translate copied or selected word? it'll be really helpful, specially in offline mode.

Alexander Belous

Best app of this kind I used a couple of similar apps for En-Ru on my smartphone before. But this is really the best one to me. Thank you!

Светлана Коростелева

Question Could you pleas tell me how I make a flashcards in this app if it's possible?

Aleksei Ilin

The best translator app However it would be nice to use once purchased dictionaries with different devices. For now I need to purchase the same dictionaries for my PC and phone.

Andrei Shinkarenko

after purchase spams ads through notifications

Andrew P

Bugs! When are you gonna fix American pronunciation? It's not been working for months...

Жолдошбек Исмаилов

Very handy and professional It is really very handy, professional and has many examples in it, so that you grab the real meaning of a word.

Bekzod Usaniv

very goood I like it a lot

Ivan Pavlenko

My favorite I love it, really. I'm learning English. But on Android there are some problems. Some times it just stops working and goes "loading" for long time. It wasn't like that with iOS. And American pronunciation doesn't sound when I push the speaker button, only Britain does.

Huseyn Sadiqov

hi why there is not Azerbaijani language?
