**Chinese Locales: The two Chinese language scripts that are now commonly in use are the Traditional and Simplified versions. Their character sets and terminologies are different when used in differing geographical regions; for example, mainland China favors the simplified version while Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan use the traditional style. My background enables me to work with both versions.
