Never before has reading Chinese been easier. Chinese Toolbox is the tool to enable you to read more and faster than ever before. Features help you target characters and words that you don’t know, so you can focus your effort on what’s important to you.

Chinese Toolbox was created specifically to increase reading efficiency. If you’re reading efficiently and faster, then you’re probably also reading more. More reading means more exposure to Chinese resulting in a better understanding of the Chinese language.

Chinese Toolbox has nearly everything you need to be an efficient reader in Chinese. Its system of Marking for Unassisted Reading enables you to focus your effort on the characters and Chinese words that you don’t know. And when you come across a word that is not in the dictionary, you can add your own entry. Character and word dictionaries are both fully editable.

There is so much in Chinese Toolbox, and there are so many features to help you learn. The program is solid ( and works as designed. When you’re ready, download and check it out. See the Release Notes for a complete list of improvements in Chinese Toolbox 2013.
