Simplified or Traditional Chinese?
There are many different varieties of spoken Chinese, such as Mandarin, Wu and Cantonese, but they can all be written in one of two standard ways.
Which set of Chinese characters is appropriate for your target audience depends on where they are. Simplified Chinese is used mainly in the People's Republic of China, while Traditional Chinese is used mainly in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau. Another consideration is that Hong Kong Cantonese uses a substantial number of characters that are either additional to, or different in form from, those used for writing Mandarin in traditional script in Taiwan.
Rest assured that we have the software and expertise to typeset Chinese correctly and appropriately for your target audience.

Two Chinese typesetting points of interest
- Chinese was traditionally written vertically, top to bottom, with columns going from right to left. These days Simplified Chinese is almost always written horizontally, left to right, like Roman script. Traditional Chinese may be written horizontally or vertically.
- Typeset Chinese usually takes up less space than the equivalent English.
