PSI’s free English to Chinese Dictionary v. 2 is released

Sunday, May 4th, 2008

A couple months ago we released the first minimally useful version of our free Chinese to English dictionary.

Well, after a couple months of use, it was decided to re-do it, this time keeping the full Chinese characters. Now you’ll have a chance of being able to use it to order from a Chinese only menu! Unfortunately, it now requires that a Chinese font be installed also, but you can steal a copy from your desktop.

If the first version was minimally useful, this version is generally OK.

So, get your free copy of our CEDICT based Windows Mobile English to Chinese Dictionary now.

Where are the free Windows Mobile Chinese Dictionaries?

Saturday, March 8th, 2008

So, I spent some time trying to find a free English-Chinese dictionary for Windows Mobile.  How naive was I to think that it would be easy?

In the end, I jerry-rigged one using the free CEDICT database and an ebook reader.  My compiled file and rough instructions are hosted on a page of this blog:

It’s an ugly jerry-rigged  thing.  But it’ll have to do for now, for me at least.

P.S. Comments have just been enabled on pages on the Perceptus Back Story blog.  Please comment if the dictionary ebook is useful to you… or if you have a source for a better Mandarin Pinyin offline dictionary for WM PDAs.
