Pinyin Tones


This is a small WordPress plugin allowing you to turn digital pinyin notation (Chinese transliteration standard) into a diacritic one. It turns out to be very useful if you type chinese grammar lessons.

For example, “Wo3 shi4 Mei3guo2 ren2” turns into “Wǒ shì Měiguó rén”.


  1. Unzip into /pinyin-tones/ directory
  2. Upload /pinyin-tones/ directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  4. Use [pinyin][/pinyin] syntax to format your pynyin notation.
