Because current users have more and more free methods to create PDF files, our partner stops running PDF/RTF-related service. Therefore, we retired the old PDF/RTF feature since July, 2019.
For those who want to have a personalized vocabulary PDF file, we recommend to leverage this new app, which can handle multiple languages and is much more helpful for ESL people.
Print Vocabulary in PDF is a handy tool for English vocabulary builders to create their customized worksheets. It leverages word lists of www.examword.com, covering main English exams: IELTS, TOEFL, PTE, SAT, ACT, GRE, etc.
Also, it lets students edit the definition of each word, remove known word, and add their word list. By the smart and flexible tool, students can create personalized word lists in minutes through powerful exam word list resources in this website.
You may get some word lists somewhere; however, you hardly find one to match with your case and level exactly. Either too difficult or too easy will waste your time and effort for future tests. It is why tutors always encourage students to learn the right thing at the right time. One word list just for your circumstance is for the goal, and the app will help you to get it. Here we show you how to create PDF word lists briefly.
1 Account and Sign on
Your word list's data and final file will be stored at cloud until you download them. The app needs Sign-On before starting its features.
At first, you have to create an account at examword.com unless you already have one. If not, please register an account through Sign-On button at page top. Here you need input an email address, which will be as your account identifier, and then click Register button.
By the email, you will receive an access code very soon. Using both email and access code, you can sign on www.examword.com. This access code is effective for all apps of the website.
2 Load Words
You may add words to own list anytime.
From Load Word page, you can see all available word lists provided by www.examword.com. Here you can select lists that match your case. If you loaded something wrong, remove it and re-load right one. The tool is convenient and flexible.
Before load words, you may check two options:
- Reset Content to New if Loaded Before: If didn't load these words before, this option does not affect. If loaded, checked means original contents that you possibly edited somehow will be cleaned; unchecked means the existing words will be kept.
- Append Definition of My Language: Some word lists have definitions of multiple languages. If checked, your home language's definition will be appended. ( you can specify home language with account from Sign On panel.)
One word list usually has hundreds or thousands of words. We have grouped it into sub-lists, called items. Every time only ONE item can be selected and loaded. You can load the same item multiple times; its contents will be overwritten or kept as your options.
Notice that only VIP accounts can load all built-in vocabularies of examword.com. If you sign on with a free account, you may load the first two items of each word list. We suggest you try some free sub-lists at first. Buy or subscribe to VIP after you decide to print more words.
3 Edit Word
You can edit word list to match with your own level and requirement. By default the Edit Word will show all words in your list. You can also search by filter to locate the targeted words quickly.
For each word, there are 2 actions on Edit page:
- Edit definition: update definition with your idea;
- Delete it: remove this word from list, effect after your Submit the current page;
Besides, there is one additional button:
4 Customized Words
- Remove All Words: If you think the current list is not right for you, you may remove all of them.
Besides updating definitions of existing words, you can add own word list too.
At Load Word page, there is a button to load customized word list. It opens an edit panel. You may copy and paste your own words here, and then load them. The maximum is 200 words each time you can upload.
Please ensure your words to follow a fixed but simple format:
definition for word one
definition for word two, line 1
definition for word two, line 2
definition for word three
Unlike word lists of www.examword.com, duplication checking doesn't work for words in a customized list. If you load the same list more than once, there is no way to overwrite original words. In this case, please maintain your word lists manually.
5 Word List Size
To keep the website run in high performance, we limit the word list size per loading. The system will refuse any request to load if its word number is more than 300. Of course, the actual vocabulary may be much bigger than 300. In this case, you cannot put your all words into one file. Instead, you should divide the large vocabulary into multiple small ones that are less than 300. Then, you can create and download the PDF file.
6 Native Language
If you are ESL, and used to add definitions of home language in a word list, you can make the final PDF file through Chrome Browser from your local device. Checking your PDF file, in case some characters of non-English cannot normally display, for example, Korean or Chinese show as blank, you should install your native language on the device accordingly.
7 Refresh File
The app monitors the current word list automatically. As long as it finds out that the word list has any change, it will inform you to make a new PDF file to download.
If you need to make new files for special reasons, you can open the edit panel of any word from Edit Word, and then save it without any actual update. This fake save will give you the green light to create new files.
All printed PDF files' copyrights belong to examword.com based on the primary fact: most of the contents come from source lists offered by this web site, although you might edit or update more or less.
We possibly share parts of printed PDF files among tutors and students internally after filtering private information and data.
