Chinese Support Redux

12.05MB. Updated 2018-02-17. Only supports Anki 2.1.x.

This item is large, and may take some time to download.


This is an updated version of the Chinese Support add-on, designed to work with Anki 2.1. If you are new to this add-on, the wiki from the previous version is still relevant (here). The core feature of the add-on is its automatic filling of fields, with audio generation, tone colouring and translation. Features Status For now, the vast majority of features have been successfully ported, and the add-on is in a usable state. That said, Microsoft Translator has been temporarily disabled. Development code is hosted on GitHub (here), and the add-on will be updated regularly. Usage The core feature of the add-on is the automatic field filling. To take advantage of this, you need to have an Anki note type with the appropriate fields (e.g., Hanzi, Meaning, Reading, Sound). If you don't already have such a note type, the easiest way to create one is to use the built-in model:
  1. Navigate to Tools → Manage Note Types (or press Ctrl+Shift+N)
  2. Click Add
  3. Select Add: Chinese (basic)
  4. Click OK
  5. Click OK again
  6. Click Close
Then, to use the field filling features:
  1. Add a new note to Anki (press a)
  2. Select Chinese (basic) as the note type
  3. Enable Chinese Support Redux for this note type (click 汉字)
  4. Enter a word (e.g., 電話) in the Hanzi field
  5. Press Tab
  6. The remaining fields should then be populated automatically
