Kangxi Zidian 康熙字典

Stardict/Goldendict and OSX “Dictionary” versions of the Kāngxī Zìdiǎn 康熙字典.

A number of electronic editions of the Kāngxī Zìdiǎn are available floating around on the internet, most notably the 康熙字典網上版. Here you can download a version formatted for Goldendict and the built-in Mac OSX “Dictionary”. The Goldendict version includes links to the online facsimiles from www.kangxizidian.com (network connection required, of course).
