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 March 13 – March 26 2017

Over the last few weeks in the Written Chinese Office…

In a recent spring clean, we got rid of some spiders and other unsavoury bugs in both our iOS and Android versions of the Written Chinese Dictionary!

Don’t forget to update the app to v2.2.4 to fix any pesky problems you might have had!

Coming Soon….

We’re changing things up on our Social feeds with some new ‘daily phrases’ that will help improve your spoken Chinese!

But don’t worry, we’re still going to be posting Chinese characters, as well as some old favourites like our Saturday picture flashcard and weekly blog post!

Happy Studying!
