Abstract To narrow down conversion candidates by specifying a voice tone after the candidates are displayed. When a Pinyin character string is inputted from an input part 21, a conversion part 23 converts the Pinyin character string into Chinese characters (KANJI) under the control of a control part 22 by referring to a conversion dictionary 27 and stores conversion candidates in a conversion result temporary storage part 28 together with voice tone information. A candidate display part 24 supplies the conversion candidates stored in the storage part 28 to an output part 26 to display them on a screen. Here, when voice tone information is specified through specific key operation, a candidate narrowing- down part 25 narrows down the conversion candidates according to the specified voice tone information. A candidate display part 24 redisplays the conversion candidates having been narrowed down.
