QuickPinyin - Type pinyin with tone marks (portable)

Recommended Posts

The Google keyboard has it too as default but a little tedious to write long text. However for the people like me who use pinyin very rarely it might suffice.

I've read that several times but can't understand it. What do you mean?

When you type  a message on your phone press and hold a vowel. A small pop up menu will probably appear with alternatives. For  example  if i press and hold the letter a I see æ, ã, å, ā à á â ä as options. I use an android phone and the default keyboard is the android installed one. 

 

I also installed "Google Pinyin Input" app from Google play. This allows me to type in Chinese or English. If I press and hold a vowel I also have alternative options as á ǎ à etc. Thus I use the Google pinyin input  as my phone's keyboard as it allows me to type English, Chinese and pinyin (it needed,)

OK that's great. You do realise this is an application for Windows, not Android, right?

Thank you so much. I was struggling with the problem of typing pinyin for a long time. I had a pinyin chart from where I used to copy the vowel with the tones.

I once started translating it but I gave up because I expected most users to understand English. I can consider it for a future update. So far you are the first person to request this.

Some fonts don't display pinyin characters correctly. This is a problem with the font, not QuickPinyin. For example, font "Verdana" doesn't work properly.

The software have a bug

If I input "o" & "2" It will show "ò".

Infact, It need show "ó" it's wrong!

 

I can't reproduce this bug. I've checked the code and it seems correct, please can you check again? What happens if you use a different font? Thanks

Hey sorry for the late reply, I think you did an amazing job translating the UI. If I add the Chinese translation I would need you to maintain it in the future, because my Chinese is not good enough. I would credit the translation to you in the About... dialog.

 

I'm curious—are you a student or a teacher? Do you need this very urgently or is it a "would be nice to have" kind of thing? At this moment I'm fully invested in two other projects so I might not be able to deliver this update for a while.

I think you are a Foreigner, Where are you from?

I'm a  Chinese , I perfer Chinese than English. I want to get the  QuickPInyin Chinese ver, that i can share it with my friends, some of them didn't learned  English well, so I need you translate it into Chinese.

I'can't edit your source, so I can only provide the Chinese translate to you.
