Editors' Review

+
Though the interface looks intimidatingly packed with information, Chinese Calendrics translates among Western calendar dates and dates on the Chinese calendars with ease. The program also displays important astronomical events such as moon phases. Those not versed in the details of the Chinese calendar system can consult the help file, which explains the measurement of the solar and lunar months. The program doesn't tell you what a water-chicken day, a water-sheep month, or a wood-rooster year means. On the plus side, it's quite stable. Even our best efforts to crash it by entering incorrect or nonsense data did nothing. If you need to translate between Western and Chinese solar and lunar calendars, Chinese Calendrics provides quick answers.

"It does not worth its price."

May 22, 2009  |  By mjn_024

 |  Version: Chinese Calendrics 9.11

Pros

It can help the persons, whose native language is English or German, to know the Chinese lunar date of certain Julian date and the Chinese tradition Days.

Cons

It does not provide Chinese user- interface. I am afraid that no Chinese person will like to use it, although its function is mainly for Chinese people.

Summary

In fact, I have ever downloaded some product which also convert between dates in various Chinese calendars and dates in the Gregorian and Julian calendars. They are free and they all provide Chinese UI. I think that only the persons, who don't know Chinese but like Chinese culture, may use it and pay for it.

"The Best Chinese Calendar Software"

July 24, 2005  |  By aslaksen

 |  Version: Chinese Calendrics 6.77

Pros

Many people try to write a program for the Chinese calendar without first really understanding the astronomical rules. The author of this program has done his homework, and the result is impressive.

Since the Chinese calendar is very complex, and this program does not shy away from the details, it may seem overwhelming to a casual user. But if power, accuracy and reliability are important, this is the program for you.

If you are interested in doing careful analysis of the Chinese calendar, for historical, astronomical or astrological purposes, there is no other alternative.

"I found this an excellent piece of software"

July 19, 2005  |  By Arthur McPhee

 |  Version: Chinese Calendrics 6.77

Pros

For some time I had been looking for a program the would provide me with both Western and Chinese Lunar and Solar Calendar information, all on one screen page in a graphically simple format, I came across just such a program called Chinese Calendrics. I was more than pleasantly surprised by what I had found. There is so much information on one screen that it is truly mind-blowing, but it is shown in an undaunting manner. This program not only graphically shows the daily phase of the moon, which can be advanced by one minute, right up to 80 years at a time, it also compares the differences on-screen between the Western and the Chinese calendars, and a nice facet of this truly amazing program is that with the touch of a button it will give the date of the next Chinese New Year, along with all the relevant Chinese astrological information. It has completely satisfied my requirements and more. There is so much more to this program that one has to use it to appreciate its true virtue. It is a scholastically mathematical masterpiece of software, however, for all its transparent mathematical complexity it has been designed to be completely user-friendly. Having used this program for some time now, it is easy to use and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who has an interest in both the Western and Chinese calendars.

Cons

Nothing, it just great
