imron Posted December 23, 2007 at 12:33 AM Author Report Share Posted December 23, 2007 at 12:33 AM IMEs like Google and Sogou have massive dictionaries for helping them do sentence prediction. They must also have a set of mappings for pinyin->characters, however they don't make these things publicly available. From a programming perspective, Pinyinput is about as simple as it gets. It's far simpler to just replace a vowel with vowel+tone than it is to have to worry about which characters map to which pinyin etc. Pinyinput was never designed to be a fully-fledged Chinese IME, just something that fills a small gap in the Chinese IME market.
