Linguee is a multilingual dictionary and translation tool. It is accessible online and as an app on iOS and Android. It is currently available in 25 languages. If we search for a word or a phrase on Linguee, we will see its translation, pronunciation, common phrases and examples of usage in both languages. Linguee also offers external sources where it shows examples of that word/phrase being used. For unreliable sources there is a caution sign.

Evaluation: Linguee is a very useful tool for learning vocabulary in context. It uses DeepL and external resources to translate words and phrases. It allows learners to learn new words after seeing them in a sentence and not as isolated words. Linguee can be well combined with flashcard tools such as Anki.
