I'm currently developing a Hangman game in English for a French website that teaches English. I'm looking for a database containing a set of English words, preferably common nouns or verbs of more than 5 letters, and ideally their French translation. TIA

    Hi, welcome to the site :). Would it be possible to add any more details to your question - take a read of What makes a good data-request? It's just to your question is more likely to get answered. Thanks! Commented Feb 14, 2019 at 10:45

In this case, I'd suggest using the flashcards from an Anki deck.

Here's a list of French decks: https://ankiweb.net/shared/decks/french

You can convert the deck to txt/csv with these steps: https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/1589071665

Once you have the txt/csv file, you can easily either manually or with a simple script prune the list to meet your need (e.g. 5 letters or more).

Another option is one of the many online lists "N most commonly used French words". Here's a generic search to get you started.
