What are the differences between Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese?

Simplified Chinese is used and is the official writing system in mainland China (PRC) and in Singapore. Traditional Chinese is used and is the official writing system in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau.

Traditional Chinese uses about 13,000 characters; some of the characters are highly complex. The complexity of this written system was one of the causes of widespread illiteracy in China for many years. The Simplified Chinese writing system, which has about 8,000 characters, was introduced as an official writing language in 1949 in order to combat illiteracy.

Before you order a Chinese translation, find out as much as you can about which country the document is to be used and who is it intended for. For example, if a document is being prepared for a trade show in Taiwan, convey that information to the translation company and be as specific as possible.
