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.
