Inspired by Albert's (of Laowai Chinese) post about the future for Chinese dictionaries, I started a project to create a Chinese dictionary. It's something I've been thinking about for a while (4 years now). Hopefully it will make things easier for people studying Chinese in the future.

 

Quick summary from 3000 hanzi dictionary project,

Purpose

The world needs a more humane Chinese dictionary. What does that mean? A more humane dictionary means a dictionary made to help people, with features designed to help people learn and use the language. A humane dictionary is not divorced from technology: on the contrary, it uses technology with care and precision so that the dictionary can better serve its purpose.

 

The 3000 Hanzi Dictionary Project has two goals. To create an English-Chinese dictionary and a Chinese-English dictionary. Entries in the dictionary will contain the optimal information needed to understand the word and understand its usage.

Since the 3000 Hanzi Dictionary Project is a community-backed project, it will be available via an open source or copyleft license (to be determined).

 

If you want to know more about it, or are interested in helping out, read this post and sign up for the project's mailing list. Oh, and spread the word.
