Use this tool to add tone marks to pinyin or to convert tone number (e.g. hao3) to tone marks.

Although you can use the red buttons to add tone marks, we highly recommend you use the number method (e.g. hao3) for speed and placement of the accent above the correct vowel. [Hint: Type "v" for "ü"]
Note: You do not need to use this tool to enter pinyin in this dictionary.

A Bit About Written Chinese

Hey! It’s Nora, Hollie and Chamcen here, and we’re the Written Chinese Team! Yup, it’s just us 3 and a small team of developers who work on our mobile app and online tool, the Written Chinese Dictionary!

Since we (Hollie and Nora) are also students of Chinese, we recognize issues that Mandarin learners have and use our experiences to create products and tools to help with these problems!

Nora is our head honcho, who keeps projects on track and directs the team!

Hollie co-writes blog posts with Chamcen, creates posts for social media and occasionally sends out an email or two!

Chamcen takes all your app feedback and turns them into awesome new app features! She’s also the ultimate Chinese-checker!

WrittenChinese.Com was set up back in 2009, but our Chinese character busting trio have been working together for the last few years to bring you useful articles, new app versions and products for all you students of Chinese to feast upon!

We’re extremely proud of our Written Chinese Dictionary app (iOS and Android) that allows you to study flashcards, set study goals as well as learn to write Chinese characters! It’s an app bursting with features that has been painstakingly developed over the last few years.
