This tool converts Chinese characters (hanzi) into pinyin which is the romanisation of Chinese used by the majority of learners. Insert simplified or traditional Chinese text into the left box, press convert and you'll get the pinyin equivalent. An example of the tool working would be turning 拼音 into pīn yīn. The great thing about our Chinese to pinyin tool is how much text you can paste in. You can paste in hundreds of lines of Chinese text and get the pinyin romanisation for this text. This tool has several pinyin options. 1. Original pinyin with tones. 2. Pinyin with the tone as a number. 3. Chinese characters with the pinyin for each character in brackets after. 4. Chinese characters with the pinyin for each character but as numbers and not with the tone above. 5. Chinese characters with the pinyin below each character. 6. Chinese characters with the pinyin below but with numbers and no tone. We have other pinyin tools, for example a tool to convert pin1 yin1 into pīn yīn.
