Watch Videos with Dual Subtitles

Watch Youtube and Netflix with dual subtitles in characters, pinyin, and translation at the same time.

  • easy to track each line of subtitles with the window on the right side

  • another chrome extension with the same feature is Inkah

On websites, simply hover the cursor over characters and it shows you the pinyin, translation and of which HSK or TOCFL level the word is.

Input Texts to Read

Interactive Chinese Reader by purple culture

link

To read subtitles, first download the subtitles, then paste it to this reader. It gives options for turning on pinyin, translation, audio, as well as exporting it as document.

pros:

  • tools to adjust when reading. for example, choosing HSK levels to show pinyin.

  • export options for flashcards, pdf, vocabulary lists, etc.

  • offers quite decent machine translation (more correct compared to language reactor, in my experience)

cons:

  • it has 1000 characters input limit for the free version

another Chinese Reader option: Chinese Reader by language reactor

pros:

  • it does not have input limit for the free version

cons:

  • not as good machine translation

  • no export options to create pdf or flashcards

  • no hsk levels shown on words
