Character -> Pinyin program?


Recommended Posts


After a quick look through the archives I didn't see any similar threads, so if this has already been dealt with, my apologies.

Having managed to install after a bit of trouble the various Chinese fonts, IME's etc, I'm now wondering if theres a program that can convert characters (say, both simplified & traditional) to pinyin, or if this is possible within the Microsoft IME itself?

Any help would be appreciated.

Ok, so I've just spotted the MS word thread below ( :wall ), and omitted to add that I'm using Windows XP, and prefer Open Office to Word. I had to reinstall Works to get the IME's going; if I remove Word, will this compromise my setup?

Take a look at this ->

And try this ->

Since it is a Taiwan system, it supports traditional characters and gives the results in Tongyong Pinyin. To get Hanyu Pinyin, press the button on the result page.

Another tool for traditional characters -> http://www.kanhan.com/tdc/tools2.html

For simplified characters -> http://www.chinese-tools.com/tools/annotation.html
