It turns out #Aard is the #Android app I've always been looking for: a dictionary app to which source dictionaries can be added. When looking up words, it does so in all your dictionaries. For example, when looking up a word in a target language, it might find it in a "native to target" language dictionary, as well as in a target language dictionary. Or in just one of them. The inferface is not so pretty but very functional.
More pictures of Tbilisi – again, looking away from the bustling tourist areas, the water fountains, the green parks, the women singing in old churches, the coffee houses and luxury stores. These are the backyards within a few hundred meters of our hotel.
Sadly, no pictures allowed inside the church while service is ongoing. It breaks my heart to see grown people cry.
I love FLOSS, there's nothing better than seeing our own people using this and there's nothing better than having it available in our native language for this.
question pour persons qui parlon francais et utilize un prenom neutral//question for people who speak french and use a neutral pronoun
I'm looking for folks who use a neutral pronoun, are native french speakers or use it as a primary language day to day, and might be interested in a short interview over skype that I could use for a short documentary I'm making for my french class. Particularly interested in people who live in Europe and Africa or a territory that still uses it.
So yesterday I created a new Mastodon account & set the interface language to #Finnish. 🤷♂️ It's.. it's.. it's fun. Really. Almost like not knowing how to read. (I would love to learn more Finnish but so far I only know a little).

Is there a way to keep the same keyboard layout across languages on #Android?
I'm all the time switching between languages and I'd like the layout to be consistent (in other words, only the dictionary should change). Any ideas?
I love #languages.
Also check my other accounts (see choices).
