English translation:Wei Shou Shi Zi
Explanation:
It looks like abbreviated internal code to me. As discussed in another ProZ post, it's common in Taiwan to actually spell out the characters -- i.e. Wei Shou Shi Zi No. XXXX -- whereas in China you may see each word abbreviated with a single letter -- i.e. WSSZ No. XXXX.
