Knowing what you need - Simplified or Traditional Chinese?

Chinese is written with thousands of distinctive characters called ideographs. These characters consist of two elements – a significant, which indicates the meaning of a word, and a phonetic, which indicates the sound.

About 40 years ago the new government of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) made the decision to simplify the written Chinese language to make it easier for the general populace to become literate. Thus two distinct versions of written Chinese came into being – Traditional and Simplified Chinese. These are easy for the native speaker to tell apart.

Simplified characters are used in the PRC and Singapore. Traditional Chinese characters are used in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Malaysia. The simplified writing system differs in two ways from the traditional writing system: (1) a reduction of the number of strokes per character and (2) a reduction of the number of characters in common use (two different characters are now written with the same character).

Cantonese, as the language of Chinese settlements in North America and elsewhere, is the dialect that is best known in the United States. Mandarin, as the official language of the People’s Republic of China and Taiwan and as one of the official languages of Singapore, is the most widespread of the dialects.
