HKUST Library Pinyin Conversion Project

In January 2000 the HKUST Library embarked on the project of converting Chinese cataloging records from Wade-Giles romanization to Pinyin. Elaborate plans were made and a number of computer programs were developed in-house to automate the conversion process as much as possible. Now the entire conversion project is successfully completed. Here are the details about our Project and the list of programs that we offer for public download.
