    Dr. Eye is used in Taiwan...(my mom uses this one)
    it does chinese Shorthand to Chinese Complex(vice versa), and English to Chinese. It has very weird translations.

    I haven't found a Chinese to english but i'll keep a look out. I do recall that there was an online translation...though i can't recall the name of the website. Don't know why you would need an english to english translation.

    There are many online dictionaries but often I like to check for a word or character immediately and it often occurs when I cannot easily get access to a computer.

    I do some arts subjects so it would be handy if I could check for a meaning of an english word immediately. Most likely I would not understand the chinese meaning of the english word because I only know about 500 chinese characters.
