Topic: Default Language on app version
Posted: Monday, December 14, 2015 12:27:54 PM
Congratulations to the Farlex Tech-Team for this work-around solution.
On my iPhone-6 it was very easy to set up the German keyboard, then flick from English to German (via the globe icon, as you suggest). The Free Dictionary search engine recognises the search-word, then offers German options with the umlaut (plus scharfes double 's') as appropriate. You simply select the correct version, and the dictionary goes directly to the translation.
An excellent and very practical solution for the problem with diacritics - not only for German language, but also for any one of the many keyboard languages listed.
This app offers a top-quality international on-line dictionary for busy people.

I have installed the excellent Free Dictionary iPhone app - but how can I get German umlaut a, o, u and sharfes s (double s) when my iPhone is on the default English language setting? The German dictionary requires these accented letters for German words to be entered into the search function - it does not recognise the conventional "ae" for "a umlaut", etc. It is simply not practical for an English speaker to change iPhone default language to German, just to resolve this problem. Grateful for any help!
