- Powerful and flexible character and phrase search solution. Users can search characters, phrases and example sentences in Chinese-English dictionary and sentence repository by Pinyin, radicals, English word, English phrase, English sentence, English sentence fragments, Chinese characters, Chinese phrases or Chinese sentence fragments. Furthermore, you can mix English, Chinese character or phrase and Pinyin in your search query. Search results are ordered by usage frequency and complexity
- Similar to the YouTube videos, the Character Animation Creator allows you to create embeddable and interactive character animations quickly. You can integrate the animations into your school or personal web pages.

The system allows you to perform two-level sorting, first level by stroke count, usage frequency or Pinyin (alphabetically), and second level by stroke count.
- Search characters by character components. You can either click the component of a character on the character animator, or enter a component on the search box of Search characters by components page to look up characters with the component. Again, the system allows the user to perform two-level sorting on the search results, first level by usage frequency, character structure or Pinyin (alphabetically), and second level by stroke count.
