Dear all,

A few days ago, I came across this Xinhua article on some recently released
software tools for Chinese minority languages:

These programs include electronic dictionaries for the characters of the Yi
> and Zhuang ethnic groups, a proofreading tool for the Zhuang ethnic
> language, and transcoding applications for the languages of the Tibetan,
> Uygur, Kazakh and Kyrgyz ethnicities, according to a statement released
> Friday by the State Ethnic Affairs Commission.

I went to the web page of the CASS, but I was unable to find these software
anywhere. I did find these press releases:
but unfortunately they do not seem to contain any links to a download page.

Would anyone on this list happen to know where I could download these

Thanks in advance!

Best wishes,
