How Do I Say Website

“How Do I Say” is a website to quickly practice or learn words and phrases in the users current language of interest. It was designed to help users learn their favorite language by teaching them common phrases used in the language they are trying to learn. This website is still new and I only have a few languages listed, but as the site grows I will be adding other languages and features.

My goal is to discover a way I can set myself apart from other types of sites like this.

As of November 2017, I decided to let this domain expire and thus moved it to a subdomain. I would like to take what I learned from this website and explore a conversation-interface for it and thus will rebrand it.

The goals of this project were:

  1. Build something light and useful
  2. Reinforce and help others learn a language of their choice
  3. Test out SEO strategies to see if this type of thing could rank well on google, bing, etc
    • I was testing domain keyword value, e.g. search: “How do I say hello in french” would be met with a URL how-do-i-say.com/hello-french/
  4. Place Ads on the site to see if I could generate some revenue from this
  5. Automation of repetitive tasks
  6. Discover a fun and new way to engage users.
