The Traditional and Simplified Chinese versions refer to the written forms of Chinese, which have separate language code pages and character sets. This paper emphasizes the difference between these two versions and explains how to translate the meaning of the source text into the receptor version by way of semantic structure rather than literal substitution. Semantic, syntactic, and contextual information should all be taken into account when considering meanings, aiming for a precise, consistent, and automated conversion between TC and SC translations.
