The home of trusted Mandarin dictionaries for everyday language learning. A modern Chinese to English and English to Chinese dictionary.

This edition has been specially designed to meet the needs of learners of both Mandarin Chinese and English.

A clear layout, up-to-date coverage of everyday words and phrases, and a handy travel supplement make this dictionary the ideal portable companion. Written for learners of Mandarin Chinese or English for study or travel.

It is ideal for anyone who needs a wealth of reliable information in a portable format, with a practical phrasefinder supplement for travellers. 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. Also includes 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. The radical index is a clear guide to looking up Chinese characters, helping the user to navigate the dictionary and find Chinese characters without knowing their pronunciation.
