Coming from my native language german, I got used to speak, write and think in English all day long. Still from time to time I have both english and german terms I want to get translated. At the same time I want to track my progress of terms over time.
Therefore I’m using Alfred and a custom workflow. Let’s have a look what it does:
You see: I can type in a word and retrieve a translation. It’s using the service dict.cc underneath the hood.
On top I also log the searched terms and chosen translations into a file:
source 1607253412 converter translation 1607253415 Umrichter source 1607253860 translation translation 1607253865 Parallelverschiebung
This way I can come back later and look at things like the frequency I search for terms
Feel free to download the alfred workflow and use it yourself / investigate how it works underneath the hood: https://daniel.town/extra/Dict.cc.alfredworkflow
