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 February 27 – March 12 2017

Over the last few weeks in the Written Chinese Office…

We’ve added a new sparkly flashcard set to the Written Chinese Dictionary!

We’ve created a flashcard set containing over 400 flashcards just for beginners of Chinese. The set contains 20 different categories containing words EVERY beginner of Chinese ought to know. The topics include food, clothing, colors, days of the week, time, animals, vehicles, places, and many more!

You can get the flashcard set in the Written Chinese Dictionary app by going to ‘STUDY’ and then tapping ‘GET MORE FLASHCARDS’. Since ‘Beginners Vocabulary’ is new, there should be a small red dot next to it so you can find it easily!

Coming Soon….

We are currently in the process of fixing some incredibly annoying bugs in the Written Chinese Dictionary app. We thought, “what the heck”, let’s add some extras to the app while we’re doing it!

New versions of the app for Android and iOS will be available soon (so keep your eyes peeled!)

Sneak Peak

We are sooooo close to launching our newly designed Online Study Space, and it’s going to be BEAUTIFUL!

Happy Studying!
