About traditional Chinese and simplified Chinese

About traditional Chinese and simplified Chinese Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese are different variations of the written Chinese language. Simplified Chinese characters (Simplified Chinese) are standardized Chinese characters used in Mainland, after promoting in 1960s, they are officially used in mainland China (PRC) and Singapore. Traditional Chinese characters are currently used in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau. Some of them are highly complex. It is difficult to learn to write them. Simplified character forms were created by decreasing the number of strokes and simplifying the forms of a sizable proportion of traditional Chinese characters. It is common for Hong Kong people to learn traditional Chinese characters in school, and use some simplified Chinese (either through reading mainland-published books or other media). For use on computers, however, people tend to type Chinese characters using a traditional character set such as Big5. In Hong Kong, as well as elsewhere, it is common for people who use both sets to do so because it is much easier to convert from the traditional character set to the simplified character set . Theoretically, at the beginning, they had no difference except for the writing method of the Chinese characters. But, as the time went by, great changes have been made. the rapidly changing world have brought out more and more new words (such as the “Internet”, “Software”) into our daily life, naturally, these new words may have different local versions in Mainland China, HK and Taiwan respectively. For translators who want to translate one language into the other language, they need be familiar with both languages very well. So it is necessary to accumulate the knowledge of language, the more the better. Now I am trying to remember the style & usage of Traditional Chinese characters. I want to be up on them as soon as possible, so I make a summary of them for a short period of time, here are some examples for your information.
