I'm thrilled to share some exciting news, Vocabula has just been released as an extension that seamlessly integrates with a tool that every Mac user should try.

Discover Raycast

Raycast is more than just a launcher—it's an all-encompassing tool that serves as a smarter, more efficient replacement for the default macOS Spotlight. Packed with a myriad of extensions, Raycast transforms your everyday workflow, making tasks quicker and easier. If you own a Mac and haven't heard of Raycast yet, it's time to give it a try.

Now, you might be wondering, what does this have to do with Vocabula? As a someone who often finds themselves too lazy to open a browser for quick translations, I wondered how difficult it would be to create a Raycast extension for Vocabula. To my delight, it turned out to be quite straightforward. Thus, I developed the Vocabula extension for Raycast, bringing all the essential features of Vocabula directly to your fingertips.

With the Vocabula extension, you can effortlessly search for words and obtain translations, and comprehensive grammar information — just as you would on the Vocabula website.

Vocabula Extension in Raycast


  • Word Search: Quickly look up words and receive translations and grammatical details.
  • Abbreviation Search: Another handy command allows you to search for abbreviations, displaying images from the Cappelli dictionary along with all necessary details.

Both searches supports simplified regular expressions that are available on the Vocabula website.


  • Information about dictionary and usage of the word: this was omitted to keep the extension simple and efficient.
  • Czech Medieval Dictionary: Currently excluded due to issues with the API, as it seems the API is getting rusty and the responses are not always really helpful.
  • Translation and lemmatisation: This features are also not included in the extension.

However, there are some exciting developments on the horizon. For now, try the Vocabula extension for Raycast a try and enhance your macOS productivity like never before!
