Phonetic Transcription Can Help You Improve Your German Pronunciation
This German phonetic translator is currently in development. It can convert more than 120,000 German words with 90-95% accuracy. If you want to support us, please buy a subscription.
Note that this phonetic translator is case-sensitive. The German text should be orthographically correct. So for example, the translator will convert "glaube", "Glaube", "Augen", but not "GLAUBE" or "augen".
If you are interested in German pronunciation, we highly recommend purchasing Das Aussprachewörterbuch - German pronunciation dictionary by Duden. It contains 132,000 words and has a brilliant introduction that explains all the pronunciation rules in German. The dictionary will also help you with homographs and personal names. Our translator doesn't convert them very well.
Another very good dictionary on German pronunciation is Deutsches Aussprachewörterbuch. It contains even more German words - 150,000. The introductory part explaining the pronunciation rules is also pretty good. The hardcover edition comes with an audio CD.
Highlighting of high-frequency German words
A special option allows you to highlight high-frequency German words. The words from different frequency intervals will be highlighted in the following colors:
If you want to make the frequency analysis of your text and obtain the detailed statistics, please use German word frequency counter.
