LDC has created a list of Chinese characters paired with their Pinyin representations. Characters with more than one Pinyin representation are listed on separate lines. Total entries are 7809.
You can view the list on-line or download the zipped version.
LDC has prepared a pair of bilingual glossaries, Chinese-to-English and
English-to-Chinese, each of which consists of a list of words in the source language,
paired with a list of sets of words in the target language. They have been compiled from a
set of diverse resources, partly LDC-internal but mainly from the Internet. Some of the
materials from the Internet come with copyright restrictions, which we have retained in
the compilation. Please read the copyright
If you know of other resources that we can incorporate, please contact us.
Two versions are currently available. The second version of Chinese-to-English is recommended for reference only! Many of its added entries are not really words but phrases for Chinese because they came from reversing the English-to-Chinese wordlist.
