    最畅销的书籍《新华字典》近日也推出了官方应用,从小几乎人手一本的《新华字典》,大家都还记得吧!

我们来看一段相关的英文报道

    On April 12, 2016, Guinness World Records confirmed in London that Xinhua Dictionary published by China's The Commercial Press is the "most popular dictionary" and the "best-selling book (regularly updated)."
    China Publishing Group has many time-honored member publishing houses and comprehensively recognized publications, among which The Commercial Press and Xinhua Dictionary are typical examples. The 'Most popular dictionary' and 'Best-selling book (regularly updated)' record titles themselves are the epitome of Sino-Foreign cultural exchange, showing the increasing international influence of Chinese language from a micro level," said Tan Yue, President of China Publishing Group.
    China Publishing Group official micro-blog claimed the official release of Xinhua Dictionary’s official app on June 12. Developer says users have to pay for the app because of the copyright and software development issues.
    "We have added many functions which the paper version lacks." The head of The Commercial Press said, "Li Ruiying's (former broadcaster of CCTV News)articulation is one of the biggest bright spots."

    《新华字典》获得世界上“最受欢迎的字典”和“最畅销的书”两项吉尼斯世界纪录。
    中国出版集团公司总裁谭跃表示:“中国出版集团有很多历史悠久的出版社和广受认可的出版物,商务印书馆和新华字典便是典型实例。“最受欢迎的字典”和“最畅销的书”这两个记录本身是中外文化交流的缩影,从微观层面显示了汉语国际影响力的提升。”
    6月5日,中国出版集团官方微博发布消息称,《新华字典》官方APP发布。APP的开发方表示,因涉及版权及软件开发等问题,所以需要付费。
    “我们加入了许多纸质版字典没有的功能。”商务印书馆负责人说,“李瑞英(新闻联播原播音员)的清晰发音是最大的亮点之一。”
