Recommendations for best English - Chinese dictionary or translator apps for iphone, or best electronic or paper dictionaries? [more inside]
I'm looking for an electronic dictionary to help out when visiting Taiwan. I've found reviews of Japanese models but not much for Chinese ones. Can anyone recommend somewhere that will help, or perhaps a particular brand or model to go for?
I've given up. I can't seem to find this anywhere. Perhaps MeFi can do it? I'm looking for an English-Chinese dictionary for my Nokia N70 phone that has pinyin pronouncations listed for the characters. I want characters, too, but the pinyin is pretty key if I'm actually going to be able to say anything. I'm running Symbian 60 OS. You would think this shouldn't be that hard to find but everything I find either doesn't have pinyin or is for the wrong Symbian OS.
Last night I was watching the completely superb "China Rises" documentary. In one scene a mother helps her son with his homework, the kids doesn't know the meaning of a word, mom says get the dictionary. Shot of dictionary, duh, it's in Chinese. How does a Chinese dictionary work? How do you find the character you're looking for?
