Audience Interest

A few notions why your audience might like to hear about L√ętzRead.

Motivation

As a native, Tom noticed that L√ętzebuergesch Learners often have only limited opportunities to integrate Luxembougish into their daily life.

Inspired by the Toucan browser extension, Tom set out to build his own version specially for L√ętzebuerg.

He hopes that it will help pupils integrate more Luxembourgish into their life
by translating their favorite websites & media bite-sized into Luxembourgish.

Technical Limitations

Things to Keep in Mind [Beta]

Language is a complex area in which even the best automatic translation software errs. L√ętzRead overall accuracy is high enough to be useful for vocabulary training, but expect that there will be occasional words that don't fit, especially when a translation depends on specific context.

GOOD FIT

General Web Browsing / Spare Time
E.g. Reading News, Trivial Browsing, Wikipedia entries, etc.

BAD FIT

Work / Specialized Activity
You shouldn't use it on content that's very specific (e.g. scientific, legal, technical texts) as translations in these areas often depend on exact context.
