How to change the language of "Popular Translations"

When creating LingQs, I get a list of “Popular Translations”. They are always in the same language, although I have configured the dictionaries to be in two languages.

Is there a way to have popular translations in two languages or at least is there a way to switch the “main” language in which popular translations are displayed?


You can’t show popular translation for two languages at once. It will show translation for your main Dictionary language. If you have more dictionary languages selected, when you click on the Check/Manage Dictionaries, you will see available dictionary sources for each language you have added into Dictionary languages list.

I do not think I understand. The first sentence says it can show two languages, and then in the second sentence you say “It will show translation for your main Dictionary language”. So, is it one or two? What is my main Dictionary?

I have two languages specified in “DICTIONARY LOCALES” section on the Android App and “Dictionary Languages” section in the web UI.

I see popular translations in one language only. I can click on “Dictionaries” and select a dictionary in a different language, but this is not what my question was about.

OK, I have played a little more with the settings and was able to switch the popular translations to a different language. Apparently they are displayed in the language that is listed first. I do not see a way to display a combined list of popular translations in two languages.

Sorry it was a typo, I edited it. I meant to say “can’t”.
Popular translation will appear in language you have selected as your first dictionary language. You can add more dictionary languages, but for them you will need to use " Check/Manage Dictionaries" option to search for translation.

Yes, I can see this now. Thanks.

I want to make it a feature request. I would like to see a combined list of popular translations in more than one language. Different words have better translations in different languages. For example, cognates. Also useful when languages have similar concepts, for example gender for nouns. Those are two real life examples off the top of my head - learning Spanish, and speaking English and Russian. Definitely more cognates with English, but noun genders and reflexive verbs are much more like Russian.
