Wenlin Institute, Inc. SPC's ABC Cantonese Dictionary (Edited by Robert Bauer) has reached its goal of $50,000 USD on Kickstarter. Timeline / Specifications Assuming the Wenlin website & software progress/updates are also being applied to Pleco, either with 1) free updates or 2) consequent portions being a paid upgrade (similar to Tuttle Learner's Chinese Dictionary UPGRADE). No details known for this commercial/licensing deal. There are many ways to access Wenlin's ABC Canto Dictionary: 1) Wenlin's own wiki-styled website. The website can be accessed by consumers via a subscription fee. The subscription fee has not been finalized: 2) Wenlin's desktop software. Take a look at Wenlin Software (4.2) for further comparison and/or speculation. 3) The Print Edition I am unable to determine whether this will be available during the first or second development cycle. If it's during the first, it will not include: 4) Pleco Spoiler: Update 1 states: We are excited to announce that Wenlin and Pleco have just signed an agreement to make the Cantonese dictionary available as an add-on to Pleco. Some of our pledges to the Cantonese Dictionary wiki effort will also receive a free copy of the Cantonese dictionary to use with Pleco once released mid 2017. If you have already pledged, you can adjust your pledge to make sure that you will also receive your free copy to use with Pleco - available only through this campaign. Thank you so much for your support. We're half way there! Elisabeth & the Wenlin Team (Source) Spoiler: Pleco states: We’ve also made arrangements with our friends at Wenlin to offer a free offline Pleco copy of the dictionary to some backers of their ABC Cantonese Dictionary website Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wenlin/wenlin-abc-cantonese-dictionary-website-ed-robert So you can now choose a Kickstarter reward level that includes a free, non-time-limited offline copy of the dictionary to use in Pleco. (Source) Is this offer only available to those with Kickstarter accounts / backers? Or only the 'free' part applies to backers? It's hard to tell with the statement "available only through this campaign."
