MDBG easy to use Chinese-English Dictionary

Each entry in the character dictionary consists of a Chinese character, radical / stroke count, English definition, Mandarin pinyin pronunciation, Yale & Jyutping Cantonese pronunciation, simplified / traditional variants and cangjie.


Cantonese Tools

This tool turns Cantonese into Jyutping which is one of the main romanisations for Cantonese. Just enter the Chinese text (in traditional or simplified) and it will output the Jyutping.  You can enter the names into the Cantonese Read A Loud and listen to the audio to hear how the name sounds in Cantonese (This is kinda slow so be patient)
