The CFDICT project is the project to provide a Chinese ⇒ French free dictionary, in part by translating the Chinese-English CEDICT.
CFDICT started in January 2007. In June 2007, it had near 1.000 entries. In November 2007, the HanDeDict's team kindly provided a nice website for CFDICT, which then slowly migrate toward this new place : http://www.chinaboard.de/cfdict.php
The Websupport and Website is kingly provide by the Handedict's team (Michael Klaus Engel, Jan Hefti), who strongly support us.
The current http address is : http://www.chinaboard.de/cfdict.php
The current local (French) overviewer team is made by :
It'is strickly forbidden to copy an existing dictionary (such as a serie of translations or the examples sentences).
Such behaviour may finally lead to shut down CFDICT for copyright violation, and accordingly, is not accept on CFDICT. Translations and examples should be a translation made by contributors themself.
An acceptable way of adding translations is: take a Chinese word, look it up in several (!) dictionaries and then chose the translation which you think fits best. And you are not allowed to use the same example sentences as found in other dictionaries - apart from the real basic sentences like “Je t'aime”, “Je te deteste”, or “Il fait chaud” etc.
One day : Merge the English CEDICT, the German Handedict, the French CFDICT and all the CEDICT translations.
As much as possible, most of my decisions have and will follow those of HanDeDict (e.g., fields of application). I also believe that common conventions, website's styles, fields, … will be benefic to all of our projects. I encourage to follow HanDeDict choices and systems.
