You Can Now Import the BEST Korean dramas from Viki into LingQ

**UPDATE Now works with other languages. They must have learn mode enabled.

Nice update for those learning Korean (Japanese and Chinese too).

You can import content from Viki :) For those who don't know, Viki lets you watch (mainly) Korean dramas and they have a learn mode option, similar to www.animelon.com

However, you cannot use their learn mode on mobile and if you live outside North America :(

SO USE LINGQ's BROWSER EXTENSION! :P

LingQ lets anyone import Viki content, study it on desktop and mobile ;)

This post has a bit more information on how to do it:

    I just tried importing a Chinese drama from Viki with the LingQ Chrome extension. However, I received an error message saying that so far only Korean is supported.

    @Mark and team, is there any way you can extend this feature to Chinese as well?

    Thank you!

      I tried this as well and got the same result. Would be great if chinese could be included as well. Hopefully it's not too hard to implement.

          Eric and team, thank you so much for implementing this! I just tried it with Chinese and it worked!

          Just one thing: the words are not split correctly when you first import a lesson. One line of subtitles (which consists of multiple words) is imported as one long word. Of course, this can be easily fixed by resplitting the text in editing mode, but I wanted to let you know anyway so that you can get rid of this bug.

          Again, thanks for this great feature!

            Hi Yannick, that also happens for Japanese too.

            We're looking into it, it's a bit tricky to fix but we will let you know if we're able to figure it out.

              Really looking forward to a solution to this, as it would be extremely useful for importing new interesting material in a simple non-time consuming way.

              Edit: Just found how to resplit the text on the edit lesson page, which makes this import issue easily manageable.

      I got the same as well for Japanese - we're looking into it.

    The real way to do viki is to get onto a translating team.
