Description

The home of trusted Mandarin dictionaries for everyday language learning.

A handy, affordable Chinese to English and English to Chinese reference for every day, including a guide to the most common expressions in both languages.

This dictionary offers extensive and up-to-date coverage of Chinese and English to travellers and learners at home, school or in the office.

28,000 translations.

Designed for all those studying Mandarin Chinese who need maximum information in a handy travel format.

Offers comprehensive and updated coverage of Chinese and English.

To help with the pronunciation of Chinese words, the dictionary includes Pinyin for all Chinese headwords, translations, phrases and examples. Pinyin is the official phonetic system for transcribing Chinese characters into the Roman alphabet, and is accepted in all Chinese-speaking countries.

Contains a radical index – a clear guide to looking up Chinese characters, helping the user to navigate the dictionary and find these without knowing their pronunciation.

Also includes both simplified and traditional Chinese characters. Simplified characters are generally used in mainland China and Singapore, while traditional characters are mainly used in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau.
