Wenlin Demo 3.4.1
August 23, 2007
The free demo (demonstration) version of Wenlin Software for
Learning Chinese is a useful program in its own right. It does not
expire. It differs from the complete version in the following
- The Demo has only a miniature dictionary, with a few dozen
vocabulary items. The complete Wenlin dictionary has over 10,000
characters and about 200,000 words and phrases.
- The Demo doesn't include any sound files. The complete Wenlin
has Audio CD-quality studio recordings of all the syllables of
Mandarin Chinese, in both a man's voice and a woman's voice.
- The Demo includes only one sample Chinese text. The complete
Wenlin includes a collection of Chinese literature.
- The complete Wenlin comes on a CD-ROM, with a 248-page User's
Guide. The same CD-ROM runs on MacOS X and MS-Windows.
- The complete Wenlin enables you to edit the dictionary, to add
new vocabulary and modify definitions.
