Can I use the Thesaurus endpoint API to get synonyms for other languages than EN?

Hi there,
in the documentation I see that the Thesaurus endpoint is only available for EN (https://developer.oxforddictionaries.com/documentation/languages)

I was wondering if there is any, current, way to query for synonyms in DE and other languages, using the API?
Apparently it works for Google.
Typing in "word + synonym" provides synonyms from Oxford Languages

Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hello @GordianNF

    You're correct, the Thesaurus endpoint is only available for those language datasets that contain Thesaurus. Which at the moment it is only the English dataset.

    Therefore, you won't be able to retrieve Thesaurus from other languages supported by the API. If you would like more information about the Supported Languages and which endpoints can be used for each one of them please visit this page
