I have received a few requests for more information about the dictionaries I use and other books I use for reference. Maybe this helps. Click on a picture for an enlargement. Clicking on book titles shows detailed (mostly Amazon) information.
This is a nice blog, Harmen.
If any of your readers are interested in online or open source resources, they may find the following site useful as well:
This is the (non-commercial) website of an open source project working on producing intelligent Chinese-English annotation and translation software. The work involves compiling an open source Chinese-English dictionary, currently around 140000 entries.
The project currently supports only the simplified character set defined in GB2312, . We are hoping to expand support for the traditional character set shortly.
