Swedish dictionaries

The Swedish dictionaries LingQ uses all kind of suck. Google Translate does a quite bad job for Swedish also. The language is too exoctic I guess.

The best Swedish/English dictionary I found so far is this one, a crowd based dictionary which also lists the very important inflections and the IPA pronunciation:

I'd love if you could integrate this in the dictionary list for Swedish! At the moment I often switch to a separate browser which is a bit annoying on an iPhone.

DeepL would be nice too. It's not that good as a dictionary but at least much better than Google Translate. DeepL supports Swedish and Japanese for a while now but is not available for both languages in LingQ while you can use it e.g. for French.
