Annotation Tools

Why Annotate? Annotating Chinese creates 3 lines of text, English, Pinyin and Chinese (see picture below).  Some annotation tools allow other phonetic systems in place of pinyin, such as Zhuyin (bopomofo), Wade-Giles, etc.

The fact that the English words are placed in the same order as the Chinese characters allows you to quickly recognize the differences between Chinese and English sentence structures. Also helpful are the spaces placed between words that English people are accustomed to.
