Pleco HSK-level user dictionary

Recommended Posts


As was discussed in the other thread (https://www.chinese-forums.com/forums/topic/58933-also-sharing-pleco-character-frequency-dictionary/)

it would be helpful to see which HSK level a certain word belongs to when looking it up in Pleco.

So I created another user dictionary for this, where for multi-character words the corresponding HSK level is shown and for single characters the earliest HSK level with a word containing this character is shown. The HSK lists were taken from: http://www.hskhsk.com/word-lists.html


To add this dictionary to your Pleco download the hsk.pgb, open Pleco - Settings - Manage Dictionaries - Add, select EXISTING and select the hsk.pgb file on your phone.

When clicking an entry in the DICT tab it will show an HSK level if the word is in the HSK lists.
