comment Which fonts show the stroke order of all characters?
The wikipedia page you linked seems to be only referenced from the Japanese version of Wikitionary. However, the Japanese stroke order may be different from Chinese.

comment Where can I find a downloadable database of English to Chinese words?
@Alenanno It is available for computers, but I don't if the database is stored on the local computer or retrieved online. A lot of the translations of Youdao dictionary come from the Internet.

comment What is the difference in use between 完 and 了?
This is not what the OP is asking, I think. All the "了" should be changed into "呢" in your examples. "了" is not used in this way. One can say "看了" "看完了", but never "没看了" "没看完了". And there is a typo in your last example "么吃" -> "没吃".

comment What is the difference in use between 完 and 了?
"完了, 完了, 彻底完了" is an exclamation which implies there is no way to recover from the current (bad) situation. It can have the translation you give, only in certain contexts. "說話沒完的人" is a good example for "没完" (never-ending) , but "一個没完的梦" is not.

comment What is the difference between 一只狗 and 一条狗?
条 and 只 are interchangeable for 狗, bug not for any other example you give in the answer. (Oh, 一只虫 seems to be possible)

comment What is the difference in use between 完 and 了?
"没完" does not have the meaning of never-ending. At least I cannot think of a situation it is used in this way. Another phrase means never-ending is "没完没了"

comment What is the difference in use between 完 and 了?
完了 at the beginning of a sentence nearly always is an exclamation of despair. "完了, 敵人被打敗了!" sounds weird, it sounds like that the speaker don't want the enemy to be defeated.

I'm interested in any software of the kind, for studying whatever language. As far as I know, this is a very difficult task I've never heard of even a prototype.

comment Is 搏杀 used in jest in this sentence?
What do mean by "剩翻"? Shouldn't it be "剩下"? At least in madarin, it should be "今年就剩下一个星期了,继续努力搏杀!"
