    Some times ago I ask for recommendation on concordancers working on Chinese
    characters and thanks for the responses from the following linguists:

    Michael Barlow:
    MonoConc Pro should work if you are using Chinese Windows. You
    would have to use the regex search option in advanced search due to
    the lack of spaces. You should try the demo at athel.com

    Lou Burnard:
    Any concordancer should be able to work with Chinese characters, but it
    depends rather on how the characters are encoded.

    We are working on a version of Sara which is able to operate on Unicode,
    and have been testing it against a Chinese file, which seems to work OK.

    Rafal L. Górski:
    Try ConcApp http://vlc.polyu.edu.hk/PUB/concapp/. It is a freeware.

    The CKIP corpus, which you can link to from www.sinica.edu.tw , is
    web-based and lets you do concordances. This is not, however, software that
    can be used to process your own texts.

    Scott Piao:
    I put a downloadable Java tool including multi-lingual concordancer on webpage:

    It has a Graphical interface, and easy to use. In order to run this tool,
    you'll need to install Java Runtime Environment (JRE) first).
