Audio recordings of 14,000 Chinese words

We are happy to announce that we added audio recordings of 14,000 Chinese words in our Pinyin Translator on The users with an active subscription receive this update for free!

To create the recordings we hired two voice-over professionals - male and female native speakers of Mandarin Chinese. So now you can practice your Chinese pronunciation with the high-quality recordings of Chinese words (256 kbps).

We included all words required for the HSK Chinese test and also the most frequent Chinese words from BCC corpus created by Beijing Language and Culture University in 2018. Interestingly enough some words from our list such as 高尔夫球 (golf), 墨西哥 (Mexico), 葡萄牙 (Portugal) are not included in the extended audio add-on of Chinese dictionary for mobile devices Pleco. Although Pleco claims that they have the recordings of 34,000 words.

To help you practice your Chinese pronunciation for each word and each gender you will find 3 recordings:

  1. the word is pronounced at 100% speed,
  2. the word is pronounced at 75% speed,
  3. the word is pronounced at 50% speed,

We used a special sound-processing technology to keep the voice quality natural in slow speed audios.

This project was quite an investment for us. If you want us to record more words, please support us by buying a subscription:
