Hi lamington,

you’re welcome! That‘s exactly it, sorry about that; I will upload a corrected file in about two hours. Now you could either delete the category or select Undo last import in Import Flashcards to correct the error.

Cheers,

Shun

The undo function is very useful;) But Shun, please don't spoil your afternoon/evening on this - I'm not in a hurry, and I'm just one person asking about it.

It is! ;) Thanks, I’ll easily be able to fit it in, as it only takes 2-3 minutes.

Hi leguan,

many thanks! :) One could also use a good dictionary and check how many of the words in the sentence of one language match up with a word in the corresponding sentence of the other language, then divide that number by the sentence length. Maybe we could try this with the CC-CEDICT or HanDeDict once. This should allow us to spot mismatched sentences. We could try removing the last 1-3 letters in this comparison to account for word inflections. But to use TensorFlow would, of course, be more on the cutting edge.

In any case, it's good to see that Tatoeba ranks highest in sentence quality of all his sources.

Cheers,

Shun

Hello,
Is there a way to add these sentences to the Pleco example sentences database ?
As a french, it would add some much needed examples.

Thanks for your work, thanks for sharing it.

Hi Shaoguan,

glad you like them! I assume that the goal is to add the sentences to the SENTS tab under Dictionary. It may be possible to add all Chinese-French sentence pairs as example sentences in a user dictionary and have Pleco recognize them as such.

In a first step, I believe you would have to generate the user dictionary entries, linking one or more example sentences to each Chinese dictionary headword. However, I'm not sure what the internal tags are that are necessary for Pleco to add them to the example sentences database, or whether Pleco accepts them if they come from a user dictionary.

So for this, we'd clearly need help from @mikelove. It may even be worth a thought for Pleco to cooperate with Tatoeba.org, harnessing their open source example sentence database with translations in all major Western languages, and including them in an upcoming major release for everyone.

Best, cheers,

Shun

Hi Shun,

Yes I managed to create user dictionaries with the sentences as headwords.
I still didn't manage to create new entries in the SENTS tab.

Yes, guidances on adding new sentences in SENTS and/or collaboration with tatoeba.org would be very nice for everybody.
And ultra-nice for non english speakers natives!

Thanks for your help.

Hello,

Reading through the thread I just want to thank everyone for their hard work with this.

I was just wondering what the most up to date version of the deck/ sentences is? Is it the one in the OP main post? I just want to make sure I download the correct deck.


Thank you

Hi sourlearn,

you're welcome! I remember it as a very fun project, one that we need more of! It was all thanks to @leguan's idea. I would download the following files: (post #83)


If you're a beginner, I would download the following file for Chinese-English: (Post #88. It includes a HSK Level 2 category, as well, and a few more sentences.)


If you only need Chinese-English sentence pairs, I would only download the latter file.

Enjoy learning, and tell us how you fared,

Shun
