I need software to type pinyin. Help. Thanks [email protected]


I have not found a good direct method for typing Pinyin. I have installed Google's IME for Hanzi. Then, in Google Translate, I type what it sounds like (in the Chinese to English translation) and select the appropriate Hanzi. Then I copy and paste the Pinyin that appears below it. 你好. Nǐ hǎo.

Reginald, I recommend and personally use Pinyin Tones. It is free and works great within the RL environment. With Pinyin Tones you just type the pinyin followed by the number of the tone and then Hǎo le!


One that I found and have been using for quite a while is Quick Pinyin. It free and it works very well. You can get it here
