User-Friendly Software Maximizes Chinese Language Learning with a Complete Suite of Studying Tools
SHENZHEN, CHINA (August 12, 2015) – Written Chinese today announced a major update to its Chinese language learning app, WCC (WrittenChinese.Com) Dictionary. Featuring an intuitive dashboard, one click character recognition, flashcards, a learner’s library, and character stroke animation; WCC Dictionary now offers a complete suite of tools to help students, backpackers, and business travelers maximize their Chinese.
“With this update,” said Ms. Hollie Sowden, WrittenChinese.Com’s Marketing Manager, “we’ve revamped the User Interface (U.I.) to make it much more user-friendly. We’ve added a dashboard to create a study space where Chinese language learners have all the tools they need, right at their fingertips. The dashboard contains posted daily homework, a Chinese character of the day, our dictionary search bar, and quick links to our other popular tools. We’ve also installed upgraded Waygo(TM) Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software so users can more effectively capture a Chinese word or phrase on their smartphone’s camera and instantly have it translated.”
WCC Dictionary offers beneficial tools for all levels of Chinese language learners. Character stroke animation graphically outlines the exact written order of each Chinese character. Radical breakdown separates Chinese characters into individual radicals so learners can better understand the meaning of each character. A search bar quickly translates and defines each individual Chinese character in a sentence or paragraph (in Pinyin and English). A learner’s library provides e-books for all language learners to enjoy. And via a smartphone or tablet camera, character recognition software quickly translates words and phrases that appear in menus, books, and signs.
