Category:CJKV simplified characters

This category contains all simplified forms of Chinese characters, including those used since 1947 in Japan, called shinjitai, and those used since 1956 in the PRC, called simplified Chinese.

Prior to these simplifications, there was a shared standard form of characters, called traditional Chinese, with some regional and idiosyncratic variation. Traditional Chinese continues to be used in some countries and regions such as overseas Chinese (Taiwan, Hong Kong, etc.), and in Korean and some Japanese use (表外字).
