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 November 14 – November 20

Over the last week in the Written Chinese Office…

We released a new flashcard set jam packed with ridiculously useful vocabulary for vacationing, eating and travelling in China. Plus, we added some ‘missing words’ to our Written Chinese dictionary that had been stolen by our cheeky elves

Now you can travel with ease if you study our Travel and Transportation flashcard set. There are 400 words for hotels, restaurants and travel for you to learn, made even easier with our recently improved study system. You can purchase the new set by going to GET MORE FLASHCARDS at the bottom of the study page in the Written Chinese Dictionary. Alternatively, you can log into your account on the web, purchase the set using PayPal and then study online! Any tools, flashcards or books you buy on the web will automatically sync with your mobile device (and vice versa), so you can access your stuff everywhere.
