“Wenlin is ‘software for learning Chinese’ in the broadest sense of ‘learning Chinese’: a lifelong engagement with this language and its subtleties. It is an invaluable tool not just for those in the early stages of this process, but also for those conducting advanced research. I believe that the incorporated DeFrancis dictionary is the most complete and accurate Chinese-English dictionary for modern Chinese in any format. It also serves as an index to other valuable reference works and to the Unicode and GB18030 encodings. I use it every day.” — Bill Baxter, Professor of Linguistics and Asian Languages and Cultures, University of Michigan
