Chinese Language Learning | News from China | Sino Culture and History | Quality China Products
New to the Web this year, Chinese-Tools.com provides a number
of “Online tools to learn chinese or build Chinese websites.
Includes annotation tools, dictionaries, and converters for
pinyin, unicode, traditional and simplified Chinese,”
as the site itself tells us.
Its offerings are divided into these categories:
The Annotation tool “makes learning
to read Chinese easier by automatically marking up the words
in a simplified Chinese text with their pronunciations in
pinyin and dictionary definitions.”
My favorite, the Calligraphy Studio, lets
you easily “get a personalized chinese painting with
your own chinese name on it.” Just enter your Chinese
name (or any Chinese characters, really) and out pops your
customized work of art.
- The Get a Chinese Name tool provides
a list of a handful of Western names with their common
Chinese representations (based on sound).
- The Find Your Chinese Astrology Sign
page simply reports your Chinese Zodiac animal to you,
based on your birth date information.
