Learn Chinese in China

Workshop on Digital Dictionaries


Recommended Posts

Call to attention all Chinese language lovers and enthusiasts! The conference held at Harvard University from March 14th to 16th, 2023, is now available as a PDF.

Among the PDFs, the most interesting one is "Workshop on Digital Dictionaries - Li Lifeng and The Outlier Dictionary of Chinese Characters: A Dictionary with Digital DNA". It features a special focus on the semi-automatic creation of dictionary entries from Excel data using Python.

Michael from Pleco also touches upon this subject, particularly outlining the history, purpose, and design of the dictionary app and some of the changes in the soon-to-be-released version 4.0. However, the link is currently unavailable.

You can access the PDFs here: https://fccs-dci.github.io/tott-projects/day_three/

It was a fun conference, but they had so many people sign up that the sessions ended up *extremely* short - I think I had like 8 minutes (and I was chairing the panel so I really couldn't play fast and loose with time) - so I wasn't actually able to touch on most of that.
