FlipWords is the ultimate language learning tool that immerses you in another language every time you browse the web, one word at a time in-line with your language. On any web page, this Chrome Extension uses an intelligent algorithm to choose a word in a language you want to learn, translates and replaces every occurrence on that page. It starts from the simple words that occur most frequent and fade to more difficult words based on user learning history.

The user can see the original word by hovering over the modified one, and click on the tooltip for further information. They can also mark a word as known and make it appear less frequently. We aggregated data from three different sources using statistical criteria and to locally decide which words to use. The extension also uses a smart server that will generate translation between over 60 languages.
