Reading aids for chinese documents


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


Is there a computer program (preferably free) that can help us read chinese documents? Perhaps a functionality like the Yellowbridge website where if you hover over the text, they would give you an explanation of the words (see screenshot). Thank you.

If your documents are web based, you can use Perapera in Firefox http://www.perapera.org/plugins/ to read text as per your example. There is also Zhongwen for Chrome.


For other documents I would recommend Wenlin, they have a free version, have a look here https://www.wenlin.com/products.

There is a thread here with some basic screenshots and also discussion about the program and its features.


I'm also currently in the process of writing detailed documentation for the program but due to other commitments that's coming along more slowly than I'd like
