Select the translation of your choice and then "Click to save".

Please note: when you save an entry you can only save the word pair. You cannot save the search term on its own (such as “dictionary”) as our system is unable to tell whether you would like to save “Wörterbuch – dictionary” or “Wörterbuch – lexicon”.

How to synchronise vocabulary

To synchronise your vocabulary, all you need to do is log in with the same login across all your devices.

Don’t have an account? - Register now.

Please note: If you do not synchronise your wordlists, they cannot be restored if you delete your app or if you change or loose your device or it is damaged.

Synchronisation starts automatically as soon as you go to the trainer in your app.

How to remove adverts

For those wishing to deactivate adverts in the LEO app we provide an ad-free version for EUR7.49/year. The ad-free version runs on all devices on which you are signed in to the iTunes & App store with the same Apple ID.

If you are still seeing adverts and your subscription is still valid, please tap the cog icon in your app and go to Settings. Tap "Ad-free version" and "Restore subscription". This should deactivate all ads.
