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.

Here’s What the Written Chinese Elves Have Been Up To December 19 – January 1 2017

Over the last few weeks in the Written Chinese Office…

We had a tiny update last week to fix a few bugs (boooo) but to also add a nice little feature that will let you choose how many flashcards to study at once!

We released a new version of the Written Chinese Dictionary for iOS v2.2.2 and Android v2.2.3. Here are the updates:

  • – You can now set the study group quantity for your flashcards
  • – Minor Bug fixes.

Happy Studying and Happy New Year!
