Popup pinyin above chinese character in MSword

August 29, 2012, 02:52 AM posted in General Discussion

Hello I'm looking for a tool in MS Office Word that would allow to pop-up pinyin and english translation above chinese character. A bit similar to what we got natively on CPOD lessons web pages, or using tools like perapera on firefox. Anyone has a clue ?

I can't answer this one, except to say that in Word I just use the native translate function, which is pretty fast on a high speed Internet connection, but obviously not as good as a pop up as you describe.

I use Mandarin Popup in Firefox (and Zhongwen in Chrome), but I have yet to find anything similar for Internet Explorer.   If anyone is aware of such a thing please let me know.
