This tool allows you to create nameplate-like flashcards with Chinese and optional pictures on one side and English and Pinyin on the other side. You can fold along each of the three folding lines and glue the two bottom folds of the nameplate together to form the bottom of the nameplate. The students can put the Chinese word nameplates on their desk and use them to learn Chinese characters and words.

To create nameplate-like flashcards:
  1. Enter the title of the flashcard set, such as My Family. The title is used to identify the word list and it is required to save the list to the server for future use.
  2. Enter the Chinese characters or words. You can copy or paste Chinese text from other sources, such as web pages or word documents, or enter them using your faovorite Chinese Input Method Editor(IME). Both simplified and traditional Chinese characters are supported.
  3. Enter the definition of the Chinese character or word. You can click the E button to let the system fill in the definition for you if the Chinese is a single character or a commonly-used word. The Chinese word should not be more than 4 characters long.
  4. Click the P button to add Pinyin automatically. In the case that there are multiple pronunciations for a particular character, the system will attempt to use the right one based on its context. In some cases, the user may have to edit it. Do not use punctuation marks in the Pinyin input box. Note that Pinyin must be entered with tone numbers. The system will convert them to tone marks or Bopomofo when the worksheet PDF is generated. In addition, the Pinyin syllables must be separated by a blank space. As an example, for the Chinese phrase 你去哪儿?, the Pinyin must be entered as ni3 qu4 na3 er2. Use v for ü, for example lv3 for lǚ, and number 5 for the neutral tone, e.g. ma5 (吗).
  5. Click the Add Rows button to add more rows.
  6. Optionally, change the default flashcard settings. The settings are self-explanatory. Click the color buttons to bring up the color pickers for Chinese, Pinyin and English text.
  7. Click the Print button to generate the printable.
  8. Optionally, click the Save button to save the word list for future use.
