I'm looking for a manually curated thesaurus/synonyms file for Simplified Chinese. Like the English Moby thesaurus, but in simplified Chinese. Does such a thing exist?

I'm aware that WordNet can be used to obtain synonyms, but, in English at least, it is not very comprehensive.

To clarify:

I need it to be manually/human curated, not based on statistical similarity as I am already doing cosine similarity based on a large corpus, and this is intended to be an additional check.

It needs to be an offline data file so I can use it for automatic processing.
