Project Description

I need someone to create a bilingual dictionary (English/Mandarin Chinese) which can be integrated into Joomla. You do not need to have knowledge of the Chinese language, I can give you a quick 5 minute overview which would be enough to create this dictionary. There is a very good open source dictionary already available on the internet at [url removed, login to view] which the dictionary will be based on. The aim of this project is just to create a searchable interface for the dictionary however in the future it will integrate into other features of the site so this should be kept in mind.

The dictionary should be searchable in both Chinese and English, and each entry should link to it’s own page. (In the future users will be able to add example sentences and discuss individual words etc.) When entering Chinese users should be able to use Pinyin with both numbers and tone marks (see below)/Traditional Characters/Simplified Characters, the data for this is already in the dictionary file. (No special web-based input system is required)

Pinyin (the romanisation of Chinese) is stored in the dictionary in the format ‘ni3 hao3’ but the page should be able to display the format with the correct tone marks i.e. ‘nǐhǎo’ . I can help you to understand this system but it’s quite simple really. For an example script see here [url removed, login to view] Some more information can be found here [url removed, login to view]
