This is important! How to learn to find Chinese characters faster?

Have you just seen a catchy Oriental T-shirt or a mystery Asian tattoo? And do you want to find the Chinese character to know what does it mean, don't you?

Finding a Chinese character is easy with this free site! First, take a picture. Then, try to slowly break the Chinese character apart to several small components and click them one by one. A lot of components are available above.

***** Quick example! Tap 又, 爫, 𠂇, then finally and you will find 爱. And this character means LOVE *****

Congrats! You've done it. You can find in the table and click any Chinese character components this way to assemble your character from the
HSK exam set (2644 popular simplified Chinese characters, composing more than 5k words).

So, start finding and tapping the parts from the Chinese character that you want to type and translate.

Good news again! You don't have to draw anything fast using a mouse or your finger. It may be cool (apps for iOS & Android are available), but doesn't work easily with Chinese characters like for the beginners, who don't want to go crazy trying to draw the proper sketch on the fly.

But you can start building the Chinese characters from its parts right now just like LEGO sets only with simple clicking on the building blocks above! Below you will find a few important rules to help you find Chinese characters without making any mistakes:

1. Once again! These rules help to navigate the table, they are for Absolute Beginners, — © David Bowie, — just like you and me. I'm just a coder, who loves Chinese and wants to help other people with finding Chinese characters without dictionaries, knowing the brush strokes order (yes, it's from the Chinese calligraphy), 214 kanji radicals, and studying pinyin (pronunciation) for every character.

2. While finding the repeating Chinese characters, tap them one by one in a line. I mean, click any additional characters at the very end. In other words, tap 月, 月, 山 while searching for 崩.

3. Our hearts often make us make mistakes! And works just the same way! So, if you are looking for something like 思 with this unusual bottom part, or having the same pattern in 忽 or 息, tap the 心 character first, — and then any upperparts. I made the heart red (as a reminder).

UPD: From now on the bottom part is also available as ⺗.

By the way, the Chinese character 心 crossed by '一' means 必 (must). Well, sometimes we have to do something that we don't like.

4. While handling a Chinese character with the ⻏ components, be careful. They have a different meaning, which depends on its position in a symbol (at the left or the right side).

Right '⻏', for example, gives you a gallery (廊). But the left '𠂇' could bring a fall (堕). I made the marks 'L' and 'R' to help you to pick up the proper building block. And clicking the Chinese character without the marks means looking for both forms simultaneously.

5. For the cases with 'legs' like (look at the bottom!), tap the '⻏' symbol.

6. In general, to build the Chinese character like-a-LEGO set, don't be in a hurry. First, try to find the biggest, but simple 'puzzle parts' like 又, 目, or 贝. As a rule, you have to read only through several first lines of characters, to find the first key.

7. And as we all know, most Chinese words contain two, three, and even more characters. Have you found the Chinese character with my visual dictionary? Click it to find out the HSK words using it — or copy the character to the clipboard with the button to search in bigger dictionaries.

The button 'Copy' may be out of order under the iOS at the moment. Oops!

8. The base contains 2644 simplified Chinese characters from the Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi (HSK) and more than 5000 words using these characters.

9. How could I forget about the following? The character is not the 囗 one! The second partner, from this pair, often contains something inside of it. But the first character, the blue one, is always empty!

Click them in the table above to see a big difference. And use the blue one to find a Chinese character with an empty rectangle or a square.

10. Can you see the character you're looking for on this page above? Right here? You're lucky! The search is over! Tap the S=Stop icon after clicking it to know its meaning, pronunciation etc.
