Chinese localization is a means of adapting computer software for non-native environments, especially other Chinese nations and cultures. Chinese Localization is the process of adapting the software to be as familiar as possible to a specific locale, by displaying text in the local Chinese language and using local conventions for the display of such things as units of measurement. The Chinese localization includes treatment of the following components:

  • Systems of numerals
  • Spelling variants: Main land Chinese vs HK Chinese
  • Graphical representations of text
  • Spoken (Audio)
  • Date/time format
  • Formatting of numbers
  • Time zones (UTC in internationalized environments)
  • Images and colors: cultural appropriateness
  • Names and titles
  • Phone numbers, addresses and postal codes
  • Weights and measures
  • Paper sizes
  • Aesthetics
  • Cultural values and social context
