I found a lot of plugins (like this for example) and sources for English, but almost nothing for Russian (and other languages).

Are there good source of thesaurus (or plugin for online tools) for non-English languages?

    You have any online source for Russian synonym, like a website or something? I can easily write a backend with its API for my existing query plugin. github.com/Ron89/thesaurus_query.vim – Chong Apr 15 '16 at 9:30
  • @Chong, thanks! I've done superficial research and havn't find one, but I'll try again! – petRUShka Apr 15 '16 at 17:29

    Found one. jiport.com But connection from my location is not ideal. I don't understand Russian, so I can't really tell. You think this one good enough? – Chong Apr 15 '16 at 19:41
  • @Chong, I answered in issue. It is not useless, but certainly not perfect. But I'm very grateful anyway! – petRUShka Apr 19 '16 at 17:46

I have added Russian Language support for my Plugin:


To activate it, add the following line to your ~/.vimrc file after installing:

let g:tq_language=['ru','en']

Or if you don't want to use English thesaurus query at all, remove 'en' from the example above.

Russian synonym is queried from website jeck.ru. Since this feature is just implemented and I am no Russian speaker. There might still be bugs/unexpected behaviour. Please send me feedback on Github if you find any while using.


The plugin now support German (with woxikon.de), Russian (with jeck.ru) and Chinese (with cilin.txt) thesaurus query.
