Description

This dictionary is an AUDIO sound dictionary.

It has the unique feature of sounding out the Pinyin pronunciation, animating the Pinyin words as it is spoken. The Pinyin is spoken by a female native Chinese woman. The rate of the speaking is such that you can learn how to enunciate Mandarin Chinese.

This is an 69, 397 word dictionary containing Mandarin Chinese words and phrases. Every entry contains the traditional Chinese characters, the corresponding simplified Chinese characters, along with the English translation as well as the pinyin sound spelling.

Features:

• FAST. Now contains an indexed database.

• Fully self contained, no network required.

• A full 69, 397 dictionary, which will be updated regularly.

• Whole word search in all data fields:

Chinese

Pinyin

English translation

• Use either built-in Chinese keyboard (Pinyin or character)

• Compare traditional to simplified characters with simple tap

NOTE:

Those who have a 1st generation iPod touch must be sure to wear earphones in order to hear the audio.

Look for more features in the future.

Utter disappointment. Try KTdict C-E (free) instead.

:
This dictionary features audio playback of most entries which makes it seem very appealing. Unfortunately, a few fatal flaws make it too time-consuming and frustrating to use.

First, you can only search for one character at a time. This would be forgivable if the search results displayed the most common words containing that character. Instead, you often have to search through many entries, including many long compound words and obscure technical terms before you can finally see the word you are looking for.

Also, there are no settings to change how results are displayed.

Finally, there is no "support" on the company's website that claims to provide it.

Rather than spend your money on this inferior product, try using the KTdict which is free and allows searches for multiple characters (compound words) and offers many more features such as history and various display settings.

I would gladly revise my opinion and give it 5 stars if these problems were fixed and the dictionary was made more user-friendly. This dictionary has a lot of potential but it has yet to be realized.

5/5 stars

Works as advertised

:
This is what you are looking for if you want to hear what an english word sounds like in chinese - multiple results make it very useful.
The voice is clear, and looking up a word is simple.

4/5 stars

Good Chinese dictionary; needs improvement

:
the default is traditional characters; the default should be the official character set, simplified. but this is a good dictionary. I use quite a few dictionaries, many of which i delete. this is worth keeping, but chinese dictionaries should use the official character set.
