Default Chinese Translation Tools that I use.

I've seen quite a few requests for translations into Chinese on this
NG in the past years. Bablecarp is the most excellent resource I have
seen about tea knowledge that I have seen!!! If you need help with
translation of stuff non-tea or want more details about articles or
something, I've found a few options in my Chinese studies that I often
use. It's very quick and easy to use!

1. http://www.adsotrans.com/

This one allows you to copy and paste simplified Chinese into the
blank and you can see the translation in mouse over. Sometimes the
logic doesn't make any sense, but it can help to get understanding out
of individual characters or short articles.

2. http://www.mdbg.net/chindict/chindict.php?page=main

This one is also an online dictionary designed for people studying
Chinese. It also has copy and paste but with use for traditional and
simplified characters. It goes into more depth but is slower.

If you browse the Chinese net often, everyone should install "support
for East Asian fonts" in Windows or whatever OS you are using. This
will make things much easier...BIG5? ASCII? That stuff is just
confusing.

Anyway, I hope this helps folks.
