Online Chinese Dictionary

Online Chinese dictionaries are handy when you just want to translate a few words but don’t need an entire dictionary.

A site called Yellow Bridge allows you to use Chinese characters or pinyin to input Chinese words and will do the reverse from English to Chinese. Pinyin is a method of spelling out Chinese words phonetically. This allows a person to input Chinese without having to worry about typing in Chinese characters, which is impossible on a regular keyboard.

The advantage of an online Chinese-English dictionary is that you can easily go back and forth between the English and Chinese translations.

The disadvantage is that such a dictionary may not have as many words and has shorter definitions than does a regular dictionary.
