What I’ve got is a document in Microsoft Word that contains Pinyin words with tone numbers, for example:
So I want to highlight the WHOLE DOCUMENT, click a button, and see this:
In other words, it ignores everything without a number, and converts everything with a number to pinyin tones (I know that could convert things I don’t want converted but I’m willing to deal with that).
I’ve already got (as seen in the sidebar under Links > Resources – Pinyin):
- Convert: zhong1wen2 -> zhōngwén – but you’ve got to copy/paste stuff from the document and the worst thing is that you loose all your paragraph returns.
- Type pīnyīn with tone marks – but you’ve got to type in the numbers, it doesn’t convert numbers that are already there (I used this to create the above dàjiā hǎo)
- FireFox Extension: zhong1 -> zhōng converter – I need it everywhere (especially MS Word)
Anyone have any suggestions?
By the way, has anyone done an analysis of the Zhonglish in this clip yet? If so, great! That’ll save me the trouble. If not, please do! I’d rather read it than write it.
