A Better Filipino / Tagolog to English Online Dictionary

No other online Filipino / Tagalog to English dictionary on the web offers such a comprehensive listing of Tagalog words that includes both syllable stress marks and audio recordings made by native Tagalog speakers. This kind of pronunciation guidance is absolutely critical to learning the language efficiently. The dictionary's audio library currently includes over 200,000+ audio recordings and is growing every month!

No other online Filipino/Tagalog dictionary includes thousands of Tagalog example sentences baked right into the dictionary to illustrate proper usage. Each example sentence includes a Tagalog to English translation, syllable stress indications, and word-for-word literal translations for each word in each sentence.

No other online Filipino/Tagalog dictionary specifies such detailed Tagalog verb information, including the verb focus, conjugation type and root. This makes tackling Filipino verbs (which is admittedly a tricky task) much easier since you don't have to try to figure out, or guess, this information on your own.

No other online Filipino/Tagalog dictionary is connected to a flash card system like this website is, which makes creating custom flash cards incredibly quick and easy (with audio!). Just click the "paper clip" icon next to any word in the dictionary to add it to a custom flash card set of your own creation. Avoid tedious and redundant data entry!

Filipino or Tagalog?
Although the terms "Filipino" and "Tagalog" are often used interchangeably, according to the 1987 constitution [1] the official language of the country of the Philippines is Filipino (and not Tagalog). Technically, Filipino is a language based on the Tagalog language with some (minor) changes. The government's official position on the language has changed over the years: In 1937 the official language was named to be the regional "Tagalog" language. In 1959 the language name was changed to "Pilipino," to differentiate it from the regionally-focused "Tagalog" lanugage. And then in 1973 and again in 1987 the language name was officially and finally changed to "Filipino" and included influences from other regional languages in the Philippines. You can read a more in depth History of the Filipino language on Wikipedia's article, here [2].
