What does HZ and CC mean?

Did a search, but can't find an answer I can understand.

What does "HZ" mean.

It's an abbreviation or acronym, usually followed by a couple of characters, and then several definitions.

It's somehow in contrast with "MANDARIN"? Is that right?

While I'm at it, what does "CC" mean?

Thanks in advance.


HZ is an abbreviation of Hàn Zì (汉字), i.e. Chinese characters. The field shows up if one definition uses variant characters (in either simplified or traditional).

CC is an abbreviation of the Creative Commons license that CC-CEDICT uses.
