Google and Kingsoft Launch Free Chinese Dictionary

Google and Kingsoft launched today a free Chinese-English-Chinese dictionary.

Now go and read the Chinese bbs yourself to really find out what’s going on in China.

If you install it on a non-Chinese operating system you probably see a lot of weird symbols (not Chinese but more machine language like), on the first page of the install, tick the box (you probably agree of giving away your privacy to Kingsoft and Google and whoever else is listening in) and then continue with clicking wherever it shows a (n) on a button.

You can download it here.

t/t (Twitter Tip) to Tangos for referring me to the Sina article with the link to the download.

Here’s a screen shot.

    FYI. You can avoid the garbled Chinese as long as you go to “Regional and Language Options” in the Control Panel, then set the “Language for non-Unicode programs” under the “Advanced” tab to Chinese (PRC). It will ask you to restart, but now you will be able to read all that Chinese on the installation screen.

    I generally leave my English Windows with Chinese as the default because it should handle English programs as well, although some installs (Civilization 4) comes to mind are weird if you do not change the settings back. It has to do with parsing the differing punctuation marks I think. But then again I am no computer expert.
