Principal function(s): BookmarkingFlashcard creators

An e-reader and browser extension created specifically for language learning. It allows importing books, articles, and webpages, translating and saving new words, and memorising them later. It can be added as a browser extension or just as a bookmark and directly import content from the web. It also schedules learning and allows spending the most time on words that users find more challenging. Evaluation: ReadLang uses Google Translate to translate words and phrases instantly on their original site when clicking on them. One can also import the article over to Readlang. When one does that and then clicks on words, the program saves the words in a database so that one can retrieve them later. ReadLange even creates a set of flashcards to practice with, and one can even upload the flashcards to Anki. Users can upload their own PDF or epub files and get them translated as well.

Cost: Free with registration + paid premium plans
