We bought and use iCED ABC iPhone dictionary. Fabulous! We recommend it.
Online, there is a very good resource that is free. I'm using it to translate from the simplified characters for
月光爱人 yuèguāng àiren (Moonlight Lover, from Crouching Tiger). I find it useful to learn how to sing this, and fun.
I'd love to have Jennie sing it and base a lesson on it!
Paste in characters, and it brings up a list of definitions, with Pinyin also. Very helpful. As you discover soon, transliteration is not sufficient, particularly with poetry.
