Does anybody know how to convert pinyin with tone marks back into chinese characters.

I am using www.branah.com/chinese-to-pinyin to convert the characters to pinyin but cannot find a way to do the reverse.

1 Answer 1


go to CantroDict --> Search CantroDict

On the pull-down window select search Pinyin (Mandarin)

For example:

Input: zheng4 yi4 (Search: Pinyin)

Result: 正義 /zheng4 yi4/ justice


Go to CantonesePlus --> search words --> input Pinyin: zheng4 yi4

You will get the same results


zheng4 yi4 = Zhèng yì (fourth tone). If you start from pinyin with tone-markers, you have to convert it to tone-number for the search above
