Does anyone know a resource that has both transliterations and the chinese characters for the names of historical figures? A dictionary would also be great.

Thanks!

Hi Ben
Just wondering what kind of historical figures? Chinese, Japanese, Western... what period, what type of history? How about trying a university library? I guess you are looking for an on-line resource though?

I guess "historical figures" is a pretty broad category

Chinese historical figures, 20th century. I'm heading to the library this week, but I was, as you mentioned, hoping to find something online.

I did find this, Chinese-English dictionary, which helped me puzzle out the readings.

Sadly, my Chinese is pretty rusty

Thanks for the reply!

Best,
Ben
