Over 39 online dictionaries and more language products!
Introduction
bab.la (http://bab.la/) is an interactive language portal offering bilingual dictionaries, vocabulary lessons, language quizzes, and language games all for free. Currently available in 27 different languages (English, Arabic, Chinese, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Esperanto, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hindi, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Thai, Turkish and Vietnamese), the site operates on a wiki-style model, allowing users to contribute content and feedback. bab.la was founded in 2007 by Dr. Andreas Schroeter and Patrick Uecker.

The bab.la language portal: Check out our dictionaries, try our language quizzes and games or learn vocabulary using our flashcards. Get involved: Add your own translations, quizzes and vocabulary lessons and share them with other users.

Mobile internet access is set to overtake desktop internet access in 2013, yet almost all websites are still built to fit the desktop screen. Now bab.la has taken the strategic step to make its dictionaries accessible across all devices with the help of responsive design. Instead of programming a specific mobile version bab.la chose to implement responsive design on its website, a website design which automatically adjusts to the device of the user. Now the bab.la dictionaries can be accessed through any device and the website will “refit itself” to the screen of the user, dropping the annoying zooming necessity for mobile users while at the same time keeping the easy usability across all devices.
