Alfred App: Speed up your Chinese dictionary searches with this Workflow

Alfred for Mac OS X is a productivity app that helps you save time searching for files and launching apps. The latest release saw the addition of Workflows – hotkey combinations that allow you to perform customised actions. The great thing about workflows is that they can be created and shared amongst Alfred users, which is what user Jinn Lynn did with his Chinese dictionary lookup workflow.

Using Jinn Lynn’s Alfred 2 Chinese dictionary workflow you can search without having to open your browser. The only downside is that while Alfred 2 is a free app, the use of workflows requires purchasing the Powerpack for £15 (around $22US).

Information on installing and using the workflow can be found on and also Jinn Lynn’s Github page.
