The holiday period is now over and lexicool's staff wish everybody a good return to work.
For this issue we have been looking at other useful language tools available on the web. If you're writing in a foreign language and are not sure how to conjugate certain verbs, you could try WebVerbix, an online verb conjugation tool for 102 different languages.
Another useful tool is SpellOnLine, a spell checker for five European languages (English, French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish) which allows you to spell check a portion of text or an entire web page.
Have you written a language or translation related article which could be of interest to users of lexicool.com? If so, why not send it to us and we may publish on the site.
