freeware cantonese/english dictionary

Post by elukfat » Wed Dec 08, 2004 12:01 am

I would appreciate if anyone can tell me if there are any freeware Cantonese/English dictionaries, as well as English/Cantonese dictionaries, it would be excellent if there are Cantonese pronouciation. I do not mean those online dictionaries but downloadable freeware.

I do not have any Chinese OS and would prefer those not requiring Chinese OS. I am running Windows XP SP2 with the East Asia Language pack installed.

I have read some articles but they are talking about changjie input etc which I have not learnt how to use. But I use the IME from Microsoft under Chinese Taiwan, which gives me the handwriting recognisition input method, neat and simple for me.

Thanks for anyone's assistance.

I can suggest going on-line to Adam Sheik's Cantonese forums.

http://www.cantonese.sheik.co.uk/phorum/

and asking there. AFAIK, the dictionary is growing, but still not for download.
