### How can I do fix this....

I try to use this latex template / dictionary, but have difficulty succeeding in organizing words in the right place. translated word protrudes to the left. but I do not want it to protrude to the left side. it does not look good. here I enclose pictures of what I mean.
Grateful if anyone can help me fix it

This is the paragraph indent. For a dictionary I would suggest to use a list, e.g., description:
\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,twoside,twocolumn]{article}
\setlength{\columnsep}{15mm}
\setlength{\columnseprule}{.2pt}
\usepackage{enumitem}% To make lists more configurable
\usepackage{blindtext}
\begin{document}
\begin{description}[nosep]
\item[Item] This is the text of the item. It could also be longer than one
line.
\item[One] is the first integer that is not zero.
\item[Two] is the first integer greater than one.
\item[Three]  is also an integer.
\item[Long Text] \blindtext
\item[OK] There may also be several paragraphs in one item.

\blindtext

\blindtext
\item[Last] This is my last item. \blindtext
\end{description}
\end{document}

Please note: A screenshot can never substitute a minimal working example.
