Best of Chinese Study Tools, Studying Chinese Online and Off Dictionaries come in three main categories: paper, hardware, and software. I would suggest noting that in the dictionary section, with forward references to wakan, plecodict, mandarintools, zdt, etc. In the "other" (software?) section, you missed both Dimsum from and zdt from They are both completely free, multifunction software tools, but, like wakan, have very good built in dictionary support for Chinese. Euroasia has two offerings, the on line website, with dictionary and related word lookups, and the standalone software. I like many of your categories.

(3) This is a simple flashcard system that I quite like, just because it is so simple to use. Good luck to everyone studying!
