Chinese Text in WordPress: How to Add Chinese Text to Your Blog

In this blog post, you’ll learn about adding Chinese text to your blog. The article will cover the basics such as how to do it and the types of tools available for creating Chinese-language content.

Why Should You Include Chinese Text On Your Blog?

You might be wondering why you should include Chinese text on your blog. After all, the entire world is not necessarily bilingual – and even those who are might not speak English as their first language. So why would you add another layer of complexity to your already busy schedule by trying to learn Chinese?

The answer might simply be that you want to. As we’ve established earlier in this blog post, learning a new language is not necessarily about making your schedule more complicated. In some cases, it can be fun and even useful. For example, if you’re living in Tokyo and want to get around without having to worry about the language barrier, learning Japanese might not be a bad idea.

The point is that you shouldn’t feel like you have to. Learning a new language is not about fitting into someone else’s cultural framework. It’s about you and what you want to do. As for the specific case of Chinese, let’s take a look at some of its most useful phrases and words. You’ll find that even if you don’t end up using them often, you’ll still want to know what they mean.

The Most Useful Phrases And Words You’ll Learn

If you’ve been following this blog post up until now, you’ll now familiar with the different types of Chinese characters. Let’s take a look at some of the most useful phrases and words you’ll learn.

Simplified Chinese

If you’re looking for phrases and words you’ll need in daily life, you might want to learn simplified Chinese first. Simplified Chinese does not require you to learn any more characters than you already know. Instead, it was designed to be easy to learn and remember. Some people even say that it was designed to be hard to learn.

You’ll eventually learn that there are 64 basic letters in simplified Chinese, but you won’t need to know them all to use the language. Learning the alphabet will only be relevant if you want to write your own words or want to see how the language sounds. In that case, it’s best to learn how to write the alphabet in simplified Chinese first.

Traditional Chinese

Traditional Chinese, or Putonghua as it’s commonly known, is the language used in China as a whole. It’s considered one of the most difficult languages to learn, and it can take years of practice before you truly start to understand it. Even so, you should still learn it because it is the language of the culture and has a lot of useful phrases and words that you can apply in your day-to-day life.

If you want to learn more words and phrases, it would be best to start with traditional Chinese. Just remember that not everything will be applicable in your daily life. Traditional Chinese also allows for a lot of unnecessary characters. It has more than 100,000 separate characters making it more of a writing system than a language. In other words, knowing the characters won’t necessarily help you speak or write the language. You’ll still need to learn how to apply what you know to create simple sentences and paragraphs.

On The Subject Of Tools

As we mentioned earlier, creating content in Chinese can be difficult. There are a few tools that can make the process easier. Let’s take a look at two of them.

Hanziko

Hanziko is a free online tool that can translate between English and Chinese – as long as you have both versions of the language stored in your account. While it can be convenient to use, it can also cause translation errors. Still, it’s the best free tool out there for translating Chinese text.

The other tool we’ll discuss is called Hello Chinese.

Hello Chinese

Hello Chinese is a paid tool that can translate between English, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese – but it only supports one language at a time. It can also be quite difficult to use. However, it’s the best option if you’re looking for a tool that can translate entire texts or if you need to translate between the three forms of Chinese.

As with any tool or software, it’s important to remember the security issues that come with using the internet. Make sure you’re always protected and secure when working on public websites and blogs. That way, you can avoid problems such as identity theft and spamming.

Above all else, make sure you learn how to use these tools correctly. If you’re not familiar with how language works and the different forms it can take, it can be quite difficult to translate something correctly. Even when you think you know what you’re doing, it can still go wrong. When that happens, you might find yourself frustrated and asking someone for help. This is why, even if you don’t intend on using Chinese on your blog, it’s still good practice to know how to.
