Ah, so - -
If you don't mind me saying so to the general readership -
A high school student in mainland China.

Google did a decent job of the translation.

A lot of what I wrote concerns ancient history, all before your own time.
Nothing in what I wrote was about current or even recent history.

Your parents where probably young children when I was last in your country.

Your grandparents might be a source of information about the times I wrote about.

Yes, there is a big difference in our ages.
I might even be older than your grandparents.

Time changes everything.

We are not.

It was a poor translation from English to Chinese by Google that Yuhan was answering.
English is not his native language (but it is better than my Mandarin is).
I think I have it all corrected now.

Sorry for the false alarm bells.

I don't think there is any difference in terms of displaying the characters in kterm. Terminal uses utf-8 encoding. The default font seems to be able to represent both simplified and traditional set. Of course the application you use must also support unicode.

I was mainly referring to your post. This isn't the forum to discuss Chinese reunification or Taiwanese sovereignty.

Once again, we are not attempting any such discussion here.

Read the post I was replying to, it was a question of what distinguishes the two legacy character encodings used in C.S. for the Chinese language.

The fact that the distinction is based on legacy territorial issues is not relevant to the question as asked or as answered.

Please suggest a better wording.

Oh,yes,we should not always talk about my language.@knc1,I suggest we should delete what we shouldn't talk about in this forum.
Sorry for my replies .But I won't change my attitudes toward "one-Chinese" principle
Hope it won't chage your impression about China and Chinese students
Now,we can return to our original topic.

Sorry.Actually ,I mean that we could not only display traditional Chinese but also simplified one as a example text.I know kTerm is excellent enough to display both traditional Chinese and simplified one .Maybe even all languages.
Sorry,my poor English always can't express what I wanna say.Sorry.
And thanks for your help
I don't want talk my language anymore in the forum.

Sorry for my replies and thank you for your understanding.

Now,we can return to our original topic.
Which is -
For your location, you want "Simplified Chinese" support -
Which means support for the "National Standard" (of your nation) which is GB2312 encoding.

The Kindles use UTF-8 encoding.
Your Windows PC uses either GB2312 or UTF-8 encoding.

Unlike some country specific character encodings, there is a direct, one-to-one translation from GB2312 to UTF-8.
Also for the reverse, UTF-8 to GB2312.

BAF (the provider of the kTerm build) has shown that the current kTerm will properly display Simplified Chinese recorded on the Kindle.
(and we know from other user reports that it will display Japanese (which kTerm was designed for) and Traditional Chinese.)

What is missing, is a Simplified Chinese keyboard.
The keyboard is a "plug-in" item, it could be changed if that plug-in could be found.

= = = =

Here is an example of converting from GB2312 to UTF-8 (in PHP):
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/...utf-8-encoding
Similar features are available in other programming languages.
What is being called is a 'standard' mb_convert library that many programming languages also can use.

Does it seem to be working properly?

There is no mandatory connection between the encoding and the character set.

As a matter of common practice, the Simplified Chinese character set uses GB ("Guobiao") encoding.
GB is the official standard of the People's Republic of China.

As a matter of common practice, the Traditional Chinese character set uses Big5 encoding.
The primary user of Big5 encoding is the Republic of China (a.k.a: Taiwan, formerly known as Formosa).
It is also used in Hong Kong and Macau.

Why?
You can probably see a pattern forming here as a matter of history.
