Our Point of View

First of all, we love not only Cantonese as a language but also Hong Kong and Cantonese cultures. As you know, Cantonese is a colloquial language. Therefore we believe it is more useful to input by spoken pronunciation as it is than by character stroke. That's why we decided to develop CPIME. We're very eager to spread Cantonese. If you are also interested in Cantonese, please try to use CPIME. In case you think it's worth using, please introduce it to your friends.

Though CPIME is for free, we are developing CPIME with deficit: paying the development (i.e. manpower, software) cost by ourselves. If you like CPIME and want to support the development, your donation via PayPal would be highly appreciated for further development of CPIME.
