Introducing the Basic and Professional Accounts

We’re pleased to present you with the updated version of IDL. It features many improvements and optimizations – and, of course, new translations – but above all, we’d like to share with you the new user model and types of accounts that you can open on IDL.

Our platform now offers two major account types: Basic and Professional.

The “Basic” account is created by default when you sign up on our website for the first time. Just enter your email address and password, or use your Facebook credentials to log in, and you’ll immediately get access to our basic features:

– Selecting a subset of languages that you need or want to work with. You probably don’t need all 90 of the languages that IDL offers!
– Removing banner ads to enjoy faster loading times and a cleaner look for the site.

The “Professional” account integrates you deeper into our community by allowing you to take part in the content review process and the platform’s development. This account upgrade requires you to set a username, which may later be shown beside your contributions and appear in “Top Users” lists, and also to select up to three languages that you speak or write fluently. You’ll then be able to send us corrections and comments for the languages that you selected.

Both the Basic and Professional account types are available to you absolutely free of charge.

We are creating a multi-user platform that will bring together people who love languages and want to contribute to the platform’s development by adding new words, editing translations, recording pronunciations, rating data, and more. If you support this idea and love languages, please feel free to sign up!

At the risk of preempting ourselves, we’ll reveal that one of our next steps in the near future will be creating an “Expert” account type. What does this mean, and what is its purpose on the IDL platform? We’ll discuss all of this, and more, in a future post.

Have a great year,
The IDL Team

Hello and welcome to our brand-new IDL blog!

We’ve updated the IDL platform to introduce Sign Up and Login features. Now you can use a Facebook account to log in, or create a separate IDL account if you wish.

There are about 90 languages in our project, but you don’t necessarily need them all. As a member, you can select only the languages that you really need or want.

For our registered users, we also remove all ads to provide faster IDL loading times and a cleaner look and atmosphere for the website.

This is the first in a series of changes that we’re preparing in order to transform IDL into a multi-user and multi-language environment that brings speakers of different languages closer to one another.

Stay tuned!
