Publisher Description

If you need to learn to read Chinese, this program was created for you. Chinese Toolbox is not merely a Chinese dictionary, or a Chinese reader program, or a Chinese reading assistant. It is software to help you really learn to read Chinese, and in learning to read Chinese, you are learning the language itself: radicals, characters, words, phrases, idioms, and how words & phrases contextually fit together. The more and better youre able to read, the better youll be able to communicate verbally with others. Features are built in to the program to help you do more reading and less translating. Other Chinese reader programs may offer automatic lookup of word character definitions, but no other program helps you to rely less on dictionaries through Marking for Unassisted Reading.
As you begin to read with Chinese Toolbox, you mark characters and words you can recognize as Known, and they appear in the Reader differently from characters and words you don't know. Marking characters and words as Known enables Unassisted Reading, a feature designed to help you focus on what you haven't yet learned. As you come across characters or words in your reading that you previously marked as Known, the program doesn't automatically show the dictionary entries of those characters and words. By gradually reducing your dependence on dictionary lookup, you begin to truly read in Chinese.
Chinese Toolbox is now totally free. Features include: (1) a unique system for real learning; (2) Help Tips that shows help messages only for features you have not used; (3) document analysis; (4) multiple document integration; (5) dynamic published character frequency lists; (6) customizable web links; (7) many configuration options; (8) two customizable dictionaries; (9) automatic timestamping; (10) data fully customizable; (11) extensive import export; (12) offline use; (13) word parsing control; (14) many others.
