This paper will deal with the lexica of comparing the Chinese Concept Dictionary (CCD) with the Chinese WordNet (CWN) by WordNet. CCD is a WordNet-like semantic lexicon that developed by the Institute of Computational Linguistics, Peking University. And CWN is a bilingual wordnet by linking to the SUMO ontology that developed by Academia Sinica Bilingual Ontological WordNet. In this paper, we will base onWordNet database to show several situations for both CCD and CWN, such as: the same translation for them, zero translation only for CCD or CWN, and unique translation only for CCD or CWN. Then, through these analyses, we could find out the unique usage of English translating for traditional Chinese Characters or simplified Chinese characters.
