Dictionary – multilingual and multidirectional
23 March 2023 neu: Errors have been eliminated. Irish and Albanian have been significantly expanded. Ukrainian and Swedish have been expanded.
We are not the greatest and not the best. We make mistakes, because only those who do nothing make no mistakes. (So here’s the warning that is unfortunately compulsory nowadays: No guarantee for the accuracy of the entries and the functionality of the site, no liability for consequences resulting from the use of the site and the information provided!) Our project is based on work in free time, so please forgive us if not everything is perfect right away. But whatever the problem seems to be: We work on it, day and night, without rest, without sleep, with no regard to our health, our families, our friends. At least sometimes, just as time permits.
