Traditional Chinese Character Dictionary



Chinese character lookup can be a pain, especially when you can't figure out the radical, the stroke count or don't know it's pronounciation. The Traditional Chinese Character Dictionary with Cangjie Index makes character lookup easier with its Cangjie Input Code indexing.

Based on a freely available input system, characters are sorted by cangjie codes and further sub sorted by the character elements. Characters with similiar initial elements are grouped together and organized by their cangjie codes so that it is easy to find the desired character with simple shape recognition.

The Traditional Chinese Character Dictionary with Cangjie Index includes character definitions in English for over 5000 characters along with multi-character "word" definitions. Also included are mandarin pronounciation in pinyin, cangjie input codes (including letters and symbols), radical and stroke count.

As well as a cangjie lookup index, the dictionary also includes an alphabetically sorted pinyin index.

I left school before graduating to move back to England to join the army. I spent five years as an armorer, while at the same time studying advanced mathematics via correspondence course. Thus developed a love for self-learning. I then went to university to study Systems Design engineering. During work-terms I discovered a love for speed skating and that's when I had some of my earlier experiences of being in the flow. I wasn't a spectacularly fast skater. I simply enjoyed the sensation of falling from skate to skate. After university, I moved to Calgary where after a few years as an engineer, I dabbled in acting and then fell into teaching yoga. Living in Taiwan for the last 13 or so years, I began specializing in teaching people to feel and control their body. In the process, I gained a better understanding of proprioception, one of the keys to getting into the flow easily. I've also dabbled in App design. I've turned a Chinese dictionary that I've designed into an app that makes Chinese character lookup easy, even if you are a complete beginner.
