    • Wenlin is CD-ROM software for the Macintosh and MS-Windows operating systems. Wenlin tackles the most frustrating obstacles for students, scholars, and speakers of Chinese with its versatile and easy-to-use interface. It is like having a seasoned scholar on your desktop! An integrated solution, Wenlin combines a high-speed expandable Chinese dictionary, a full-featured text editor, and unique "flashcard" system all in one intuitive environment. Wenlin is a comprehensive tool for beginning students, life-long speakers, and scholars alike. Wenlin 3 includes an expanded and improved version of the already huge ABC Chinese-English Dictionary edited by John DeFrancis, giving it a total of over 10,000 characters and approximately 200,000 words and phrases.

      Wenlin's unique interface provides instant "point to" vocabulary look-up and "click" access to detailed vocabulary information. Wenlin's extensive character descriptions and cross-referencing include pictures of characters in ancient and modern forms, simple and full form, and pinyin. Wenlin reads, writes, edits, and prints Chinese documents of any size and includes built-in selection of Chinese literature and current media. You can copy and paste Chinese text between Wenlin and other applications. Unicode, GB, Big5, and UTF-8 Encodings are supported. Automated drill and review includes scoring, tracking, interactive testing, multiple-choice and composed-answer. Other powerful features include animated stroke-by-stroke display, handwriting recognition, and audio-CD quality studio recordings of all Mandarin syllables. Multi-user packs are available.

      What is New in Version Four
      Wenlin User’s Guide
      Improved ABC Chinese-English dictionary with numerous additions and revisions. Chinese characters are included for all example sentences.
      New high-quality ABC English-Chinese dictionary edited by John DeFrancis and Zhang Yanyin. (Available as a [book] from UH Press!)
      Both Chinese and English entries are marked with grade levels {A}/{B}/{C}/{D}/..., based on graded word lists prepared by PRC specialists in teaching the two languages. Chinese vocabulary grade levels are based on Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi (HSK), the official test of Chinese proficiency.
      Wenlin’s Zìdiǎn (字典 dictionary of Chinese characters) has been greatly improved and now includes for the first time a new electronic edition of the 2000 year-old Chinese dictionary, (说文解字) Shuōwén Jiězì (created by Richard Cook, including an 11,246-character Seal Script outline font.)
      Flashcard improvements: support for words rather than only single characters; more flexibility about question types; a documented XML file format that could be shared with other software.
      For Pinyin transcriptions of common Chinese words (grades A/B/C/D), changes in tone are indicated while preserving the original tone, using either a dot or a line below the vowel.
      Text with sound: a sample dialog from the John DeFrancis textbook Beginning Chinese is included, with sound recordings for each sentence. Choose Sample Texts from the File menu.
      Wenlin now allows users to open an unlimited number of separate resizable windows and sub-windows.
      Right-click for pop-up menu for cut/copy/paste/look-up/pronounce; double-click for highlighting whole word.

      Full Unicode Unihan 6.0 support for more than 75,000 Chinese characters.
      Users now have direct access to Wenlin’s CDL technology, including the ability to edit/create an unlimited number of custom Chinese characters.

      Instant Look-up displays explanations of dictionary part-of-speech abbreviations.
      Wenlin users now have access to the Wenlin Source Code (mostly in the C programming language), to help customize and improve the program. If interested, please contact Wenlin Institute for details.
