English -> Chinese Dictionary as Text Doc


I’m looking for an English to Chinese dictionary, either as a Word Doc, or Text file. I don’t really want a complete dictionary, just something that covers lots of common words/phrases.

The format would preferably be something similar to this:
fruit 水果 shui3 guo3

I’m not bothered if it uses Traditional or Simplified characters. Either is cool with me.

Does anyone know where I could find one - for free?

I suggest you search the Internet for terms like “Chinese phrases”, “Chinese words basic” or “Chinese word list”. You should come up with something like that.

There is a public source disctionary called CEDICT:


It is in the form of a formatted text file. The websites above have utilities for searching the file
