What is KanjiBrowze?

KanjiBrowze is a tool to look up information about Japanese and Chinese characters and character combinations. There are three main dialogs with distinct functions:

Use the Dictionary dialog to find Japanese words according to your criteria.

All three dialogs are directly linked. Every result serves as starting point for the next query in one of the three dialogs. This lets you browse through the dictionaries in a very comfortable way.

What languages are supported?

The dictionary tool of KanjiBrowze offers integrations for EDICT based dictionaries in Japanese, traditional Chinese and simplified Chinese. The KanjiInfo and KanjiSelect tools are only offered for Japanese.

How can I use KanjiBrowze to find more information about a kanji combination?

Once you have listed a kanji combination in the dictionary, you can do one of the following things:

How does KanjiBrowze help to learn kanji systematically?

The kanji selection dialog offers many ways to select the kanji of your interest, e.g. "Kanji&Kana" by W.Hadamitzky and M.Spahn. The list of kanji can then be used to retrieve information about the kanji and to launch a query in the dictionary window.

Of course this is not systematic learning. To manage the kanji in list that is learned and reviewed regularly, the flashcard organizer Stackz is reccommended. Stackz has a built in version of KanjiBrowze which allows to add the query results automatically to a learning list.

Can I save the query results on file?

No, KanjiBrowze can not save the query results in electronic form. KanjiBrowze is a standalone subset of Stackz, which focuses on learning Japanese words. If you use Stackz with its built in version of KanjiBrowze, you can add the search results of the dictionary easily to one of your Stackz lessons. KanjiBrowze was originally designed to automate the generation of vocabulary lists in Stackz.

Can I print the query results?

Yes, either as list or as flashcards.
