Traditional Chinese Long after the Chinese civil war (which caused the separation as we know), Chinese Nationalist Party retreated into Taiwan. Traditional Chinese become the official language of Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao. Both of the language uses the standard Chinese grammar, so there is no big difference in expression, but there are big differences in technique glossary and terms, especially in IT field. For example, “ballpoint pen” is called by “原子笔” in Taiwan and Hong Kong, but it is called by “圆珠笔”.
