United Nations to Use Simplified Chinese Only Starting in 2008

World Journal, Posted: Mar 23, 2006

TAIPEI The United Nations will use only simplified Chinese characters, the system used in China, starting in 2008, reports the Chinese-language World Journal. Traditional Chinese, which was used in China before the Chinese Communist Revolution, is still in use in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, and the Chinese community in North America. Since China joined the United Nations in 1971, it has pushed the use of simplified Chinese. The United Nations had used both simplified and traditional Chinese in its documents so far, but a noted linguist named Zhou Younguang said that the United Nations move to use only simplified Chinese signifies Chinas increasing international influence.
