Instant Chinese character to Pinyin conversion in MS Word!

Recommended Posts

can anyone get this to work with office 2007? i got the the 'phonetic guide' but it doesn't automatically put in the pinyin for you.

I also use MS Office 2007 under Windows XP and am able to utilize this feature by clicking on the "phonetic guide" button at the top of an MS Office page after first highlighting the Hanzi on that page to which I want Pinyin added. It sounds like you already know that it's the button in the toolbar that has a capital letter "A" underneath lower case "abc." When you mouse over it you see "phonetic guide."

Unfortunately, I'm not a "computer guy" and can't troubleshoot it for you, but I just thought I'd let you know it's possible since it works for me.

I've attached an image of how the left half of my toolbar looks.
