Welcome !! Are you going to do some transaltions on this wiki as well? --PierreGaston

ya:) i have do some translation about the oddmuse wiki, and i am studying Emacs now. I will do some translation in (Traditional) Chinese when i study in this site. – wctang

I have a question related to using multiple languages [1]. I would like to identify chinese text. I think the best way to do this is list 10 or 20 common characters. Can you propose a list of these characters?

How about this for a start, based upon some chinese course material I found via Google [2]:

啊 吧 地 和 会 就 了 吗 哪 那 是 要

What do you think?

If we ever add Japanese, we will put some Hiragana on the Japanese list… – AlexSchroeder

In east asian language, Japan, Chinese, taiwan use the Hanji character, call UniHan in Unicode, but it is difficult to to distinguish them (Because these character are mixed). Japanese can use Hiragana katakana to identify( because most Japanese article will contain these character, but may use many Hanji character). but the Simplify Chinese and Traditional Chinese are difficult to identify, but it’s ok.

I think it will be:

的 一 我 是 有 但 這 这 你 和 了 不 啊 要 好 沒

– wctang

Thanks for the list; I’m using your list, now. We’ll think about the distinction between traditional and simplified Chinese when somebody comes along and adds some simplified Chinese pages. Thanks for your contributions! :) – Alex.

After i seach the related data, this list may be more usefull, the second column is the character, and the fifth column are the frequency,


的 一 是 不 有 在 人 我 大 了 中 以 會 為 這 上 來 個 要

this is only used for taiwan.
