    Hi everybody.

    I've recently created an API key. It works perfectly when I type it directly in the browser. The problems comes when I use this:


    The error I'm getting says:
    XMLHttpRequest cannot load _ttp:// Origin my_web page is not allowed by Access-Control-Allow-Origin.

    Did I miss anything when creating de API key?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi fabrizzin,

    Try this:


    jQuery should feed the API response into your callback function if you include the callback key in the querystring.

    Take a look at the jQuery.getJSON() documentation for more information, in particular the example section.

    Hello everyone,
    I've developed a Qt Application in CLI in order to translate inside your shell with this api ; )
    My app is on github : QTranslateWordreference
    Enjoy ; )

    I'm facing some trouble with the spanish dictionary, but in general, it's working well : )

    Please, let me know what you think of my app.

    Thank you

    Howdy all,

    We've developed a new video player with an English-learning twist, called fleex. Fleex fetches subtitles for you, and then uses them to help you get better at English - we do things like adaptative subtitles, clickable words (translations provided by wordreference!), idioms recognition, etc. Fleex is a free product, and can be downloaded over at

    Thanks in advance for your comments!

    Hello! I want the phonetic translation of a word. Take the word apple for example. I would like to translate it to french: pomme and display the phonetic translation of the word (screenshot attached). Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 5.50.19 PM.png Does the api allow me to do this? Please any help would be appreciated. This is integral to my project.

    Indeed, the API doesn't provide the phonetic translation. It could be a good idea to integrate it.

    I'm sorry, but I don't expect that we will be adding pronunciation anytime soon.
