nciku Japanese Dictionary

The nciku Japanese Dictionary brings together three essential language learning tools: Japanese, English and Bilingual dictionaries to help you fully understand a word, with kanji details and audio pronunciation; an innovative handwriting recognition tool to help you look up Japanese words you see written down but don’t know how to type; and a range of customized vocabulary lists and memorization tests to help you build up your vocabulary.

nciku comes from our Chinese name “n词酷”, pronounced ncíkù (’εn’tsɪku / en-suh-koo). “n” stands for “next”, while “词” means “word” and “酷” means “cool”. cíkù is also the sound of “词库”, which means “warehouse full of words”.
