I have an in-law from China, who only speaks and writes Chinese. She is fluent in the traditional Chinese characters, but not familiar with pinyin. We find that we can talk TO her using Google Translate (type in the English sentence, and it outputs the traditional Chinese character version). But we have not found a good way to translate FROM her. Naturally, this makes conversation difficult!
What I’m looking for is either a mouse-input drawing interface, or a keyboard (standard QWERTY) interface that would let her construct a sentence in traditional Chinese characters, and then translate it into English. Anyone know of such a website and/or program?
By the by, there was a recent thread here with some good tools, but they were one-character-at-a-time. None that seemed to lend themselves to a conversational exchange. This is an eighty-year old, so I don’t want to put her through lots of technical hoops!
