Chinese vocabulary for today's world

Ordered by Pinyin syllables. I'll likely add notable other ones I come across going forward.

  • 部落格 (bùluògé): blog
  • 更新 (gēngxīn; first, not fourth, tone on gēng): update (e.g., an app)
  • 聯想 (liánxiǎng): auto-complete (which I mentioned previously here)
  • 下載 (xiàzǎi): to download
  • 消歧義 (xiāoqíyì): disambiguation (in Wikipedia when the object of the search could mean different things)
  • 在雲端 (zài yúnduān): in the cloud (referring to data)
