Vocabulary Export to Pleco

May 23, 2010, 11:00 AM posted in General Discussion

Hi All,

I've been studying HSK words using the flashcards in Pleco on my iPhone but I suddenly realised I may be better off studying the words for my lesson sets! (doh!)  Thing is I downloaded them and they work fine but they transfer as only simplified chars rather than both.

One of the useful things about the HSK entries was that although I'm focused on simplified seeing the traditional in brackets when doing the flashcards helps to make them familiar too.  There is an entry in the dictionary entries for traditional but its not filled in and although I could enter them manually this is likely to take a while and thus make me less likely to learn the characters.

Does anyone know if there is a way of getting both forms into the export file or is it one or the other?  I know if you use the CPod xml export it carries both versions but I doubt that pleco will import that.  I may spend a little time building a conversion process.

Also I'd love to be able to add vocabulary to my list pre tagged with the lesson number or something to make it identifiable....management of vocabulary is currently pretty hard I think so I normally end up clearing it all out and then importing just the lessons I want to do this week.  I find this a shame as it stops me building a list of vocab I know....

How does everyone else handle these sort of things and is there anything else coming in the pipeline?
