Language Forums Launched on TheFreeDictionary

HUNTINGDON VALLEY, PA, March 18, 2009 - Farlex, Inc., publisher of the world's most comprehensive database of online reference material, has announced the addition of a language forum section to its flagship site,

TheFreeDictionary Language Forums provide both language learners and experts from around the world with a platform that encourages the exchange of information related to vocabulary, grammar, translations, culture, science, computing, finance, and more. TheFreeDictionary recently began hosting multilingual content, and the new forums reflect Farlex’s commitment to serving a global community of users from different language backgrounds.

The forums are organized by language and subdivided into a number of related categories. Visitors can use these categories to locate a topic of interest or use the search feature to find posts related to specific terms or keywords. While anyone can view existing posts, only registered users are able to post replies or begin a new thread. Registering as a member on the site is both simple and free.

At TheFreeDictionary, the foremost priority is the users, and Farlex’s editors pride themselves on the personal attention they give to every piece of feedback they receive. Over the years, TheFreeDictionary’s staff has reviewed tens of thousands of questions and comments, and many of the site’s unique features have come as a direct response to user requests. Because user feedback is so important to the Farlex team, the new Language Forums include a section dedicated entirely to user suggestions for the site.

Nick Simonov, co-founder and president of Farlex, Inc., is excited that users will now be able to interact with one another directly through TheFreeDictionary. “For the first time, our users will be able to virtually reach across the globe and meet one another in a forum that addresses their common interest in language learning. TheFreeDictionary is an invaluable educational tool, and these forums now provide our visitors with an accessible way to put the lessons they learn from our reference material into practice.”

TheFreeDictionary debuted as a simple, free online dictionary catering to U.S. customers and has since evolved into one of the most authoritative reference sites on the Web, serving a global network of users. Today, the site offers access to multilingual dictionary content spanning more than 40 languages; computing, medical, legal, and financial dictionaries; a thesaurus; several encyclopedias; and much more. The new Language Forums section is just another way this multifaceted educational site encourages users to learn about language.


Launched in the spring of 2003, has quickly become one of the most comprehensive reference resources on the Web. From its beginnings as a simple dictionary of everyday terms, has grown to include medical, legal, and computer dictionaries, a multilingual dictionary tool, a thesaurus, several encyclopedias, a literature reference library, language forums, and a search engine. A prime online vehicle for active information seekers, has been accessed by more than 1.3 billion visitors.
