Cantonese CC-CEDICT Reader

Cantonese CC-CEDICT Reader


A very simple dictionary application that reads the Cantonese variant of CC-CEDICT.

IMPORTANT: You must select "Update Dictionary" from the menu after installation. The download is large (~20 megs) so do it over wifi.

Search the dictionary by inputting Chinese character. You can also use yale punctuation with tone numbers but the dictionary is really meant for Chinese -> Engilsh lookup so this mode may not work well.

There is no built-in IME. Please install an appropriate Chinese Language Input Method into your Android device separately.

Dictionary data is taken from Cantofish with permission of the author. It also includes some other data published on the Cantodict forums.

Recent changes:
Version 0.5 -- First beta quality release.

All users should be able to download dictionary now and use the app. Rotation and task swapping should also not crash. Update frequency should go down now as things are finally stable again.

Great to have a dictionary that has Cantonese along with the English meanings. Some of the romanization is wrong 中 jung/zung is shown as yung but it is still useful. Words can be found with ease.
