Submit New CEDICT Entries
You can use this form to submit new candidate entries to include in
future CEDICT releases. The form will check the submissions to make
sure they are in proper CEDICT format and that the number of Chinese
characters for each entry matches the number of pinyin syllables. It
also checks each character's pinyin.
