Simplified and Traditional Chinese
Choosing the right typeface
Chinese is written in either simplified and traditional characters. Simplified characters are mainly used in China, Singapore, and Malaysia, with traditional characters used in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, and elsewhere.
By using the right characters for websites, signage, devices, games, or other applications that require Chinese, you can convey information correctly to your intended audience.
