  • View the dictionaries’ results on the same page and discover the various meanings of words, indications of use and related phrases

Why Not use it: 

  • Do not use it when you want to translate a set phase because it won’t be able to interpret it; it will traslate it literally.
  • It cannot tranlate more than 800 character, because it has a no more 800 characters limit.
  • It only works with 15 languages while Google Translator translates the double of languages
  • If you are against of the advertisement while traslating, do not use Reverso. The page contains Advers.
