Where can I find a good Chinese dictionary?

Asked by Aqua (2543 points ) March 21st, 2011

I’m looking for a reliable, academic-level online Chinese dictionary. I’m not looking for a translation website, but something that gives definitions of Chinese words in Chinese. Something equivalent to the Real Academia Española for Spanish would be ideal. I’ve also tried to look for an iPod touch app like this, but all I can find are translation apps.

I’m also interested in finding a good Spanish-Chinese dictionary. Online and/or an iPod app would be ideal, but I’ll also take suggestions for physical books.

This one should do it:
http://www.zdic.net/

Even notes word roots, historical references, 成语 and related words.
