Words for Lily

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

1/16/2012

How does the translation work?

The translation capability is a just-in-time service that renders the site content of the current page (that is, the page the user is currently viewing) in a language other than US English and of the current user's choosing.

As a user progresses through different pages and forms, the site content is translated as it is loaded into the user's browser. Note that the user's content (i.e., word lists) should not appear as translated.

In this way, no translated content is persisted.

Will my user content be translated?

No. Only the site content should appear translated should the user elect to do so.

Did I see Words for Lily translated into Spanish?

Words for Lily is primarily written in English, and is currently translated into Spanish by Google Translate. Although the Words for Lily team implemented the code to take advantage of the service, Words for Lily is not responsible for the accuracy of any content translation into languages other than US English.

What is the difference between Personal and Premium subscriptions?

Personal subscriptions are usually the best fit for parents interested in a subscription for their children. This type of subscription allows for 3 to 10 lists of 25 to 100 words each, with sharing limits of between 10 and 25 other subscribers.

Premium subscriptions are better suited for small organizations needing lists to support multiple groups of children, such as various classrooms. These subscriptions allow 10 lists of 50 to 100 words each, with sharing allowed for 50 to 100 other subscribers.

Can lists be uploaded?

A means for subscribers to upload lists is coming VERY soon!!

Does Words for Lily store my credit card information?

Words for Lily never sees any of your financial information because all transactions for the purchase of the mobile app or for subscriptions are handled by third parties by design (Amazon.com, the Android Market, or Google Checkout).

Words for Lily will never ask you for any financial information of any kind.

5/6/2011

What about profanity?

Because subscribers create lists of their own content, we realize that some -- particularly maturing children -- may attempt to include profanity in their personal content.

Because the Words for Lily system was designed primarily with children in mind, we have reluctantly taken the precaution to attempt to prevent the appearance of common obscenities in user-submitted content.

Please see our official policy statement for further details.

We hope that you will support us in our decision.

I'm using Internet Explorer 8 and the site seems all wonky. What's the deal?

The Microsoft Windows Internet Explorer browser, in versions 8 and 9, has a "Compatibility Mode" feature that is intended to improve the display of older websites.

Disabling this mode should allow the site to display correctly.
