Question about Chinesepod+skritter?

January 29, 2012, 03:08 PM posted in General Discussion

From what I understand there is some kind of cooperation between chinesepod and skritter, and that there should be some kind of integration function?

There is supposed to be some way to add words from chinesepod to skritter, but I cant find the button, and please please please tell me there is a button to autoadd all words from your chinesepod wordlist, autocreating a new skritter vocablist with the same name as the label-name of your words list...please please please. 

Dont tell me I have to first download the words from chinese pod and reupload them to skritter, because in that case, I dont really see where the "integration" part" is.

I dont know where to ask this, so I will ask both at skritter and Chinesepod. Twice the chance of getting a good answer^^

I think you can find the function on the skritter website, under vocab lists I believe. I can't remember how I did this but I have a section on my vocab list called "Chinese Pod lists" now. The labels from your Chinese Pod vocab will also be added to your skritter vocab lists yes. 

Sorry about not being clear enough but I'm sure the Skritter guys can give you a clear answer.

I don't know how to port a custom vocabulary list from Chinese Pod to Skritter, but I do know that Skritter has all the original vocabulary lists for each lesson waiting for you in the vocabulary list section on their site.  Your idea is a good one; if the function does not exist currently I hope they can add it.   (I assume that when you say "wordlist" you are referring to labels for groups of words that you have defined yourself, and not the words associated with specfic lessons already by Chinese Pod.)

I see Nick replied on Skritter.  You can retrieve the custom vocabulary lists you have made in Chinese Pod from Skritter, though he noted you may need a premium subscription to do so.   But it is possible to log into your Chinese Pod account from Skritter.
