I also changed the pinyin with numbers to pinyin with tone marks because I prefer tone marks.

It seems to be good, but I don't know until I try it on a Kindle and my Kindle is not working right now

So is there anyone with a Kindle 3 that could test out my dictionary for me? I'd really appreciate any help, and I'm sure other people would find a Chinese-English dictionary helpful.

just check out the attached .mobi file, set it as your default dictionary on the kindle, and let me know if it works with the instant lookup.
Hey Devot3d, it didn't work for me. I can open and read the dictionary, however, the look up function does not work for me. If it makes any difference, I do have the font and ss hack for the kindle.

I'd be happy to test future versions for you as well! Keep up the good work!

edit: If anyone else has made a Chinese-English dictionary, please post it! Help us non-computer savvy users!
