    featuring

    - Our featuring product for today is on Iphone 6!
    - The featuring word today of our on-line dictionary is the word: "featuring".
    Чем больше слов, тем меньше они стоят.

    Sorry, but I think you mean "featured", not "featuring". In any case, the word is truly difficult to translate as it doesn't really have even a close analog in Russian. Well, usually it goes like this:

    Our featured product for today is on iPhone 6 - Продукт дня сегодня представлен на iPhone 6

    The featured word today in our on-line dictionary is the word "featured" - Словом дня в нашем словаре является слово "слово дня "

    Anyways, this word's translatiion is highly context dependent. For example, something like this:

    "A featured product at a sale" might be translated as "главный продукт на распродаже".

    I do not claim that my opinion is absolutely true.
    If you've spotted any mistake in my English, please, correct it. I want to be aware of any mistakes to efficiently eliminate them before they become a habit.

    "Специальное предложение" хороший аналог "featured product".

    Hmm, yeah. This is a good one. Should work 90% all the time.

    Well, the original sentence was with "on", so I thought that the featured product was not the iPhone 6, but an app you can download on it or something like that. Could that be the case, Scott?

    True, I didn't think of it that way. Then I think it should be "on the iPhone 6".

    imho
