Description

Easy learn a language by parallel reading web sites.

This application is for persons who study one or more languages and want to expand their vocabulary.

Franker helps you learn new words and phrases by enabling sentence-to-sentence translation for web sites.

You simply read news and study language, isn't that nice?

This is how it works.

You select a block of text on a web page and Franker then splits it to sentences, translates them one-by-one and injects the translation directly after every original sentence (check screenshots). So you read chunk of original text first, then translation.

This way you learn new words quickly and in context. Moreover, remembering the new words is not necessary, you'll meet them again soon. Just proceed reading some interesting blog post, news or article on the Web!

Franker is a perfect companion for your Mobile Safari. It can be launched from Safari via bookmark, so you can always open current page in Franker. And back, Franker lets you open current page in Safari.

Franker has built-in support for Readability. For you who prefer read in comfort.

Text-to-Speech feature teaches you pronunciation. It is experimental and works for limited set of languages though.

Translation and text-to-speech are powered by Google Translate service. This machine translation is good enough (to English at least) to help you understand the meaning and expand your vocabulary.

Inspired by Ilya Frank's Reading Method for books.

...or you can just use Franker as a quick translation tool.

Good luck and enjoy reading web sites in foreign languages!
