  Simplified Chinese character - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Simplified Chinese characters are the Chinese characters officially simplified by the government of the People's Republic of China in an attempt to promote literacy.
Simplified characters are gradually gaining popularity among many overseas Chinese communities as more mainland Chinese are emigrating from their homeland.
Since simplified Chinese conflated many characters into one and since the initial version of the GB encoding scheme, known as GB2312-80, contained only one code point for each character, it is impossible to use GB2312 to map to the bigger set of traditional characters.

Simplified Chinese characters (简体字 or less frequently 简化字) are one of two standard character sets used in contemporary Chinese written language printing text.

Simplified Chinese characters (Chinese: 简体字 pinyin: jiǎntǐzì, or less frequently 简化字 pinyin: jiǎnhuàzì), generally refer to the Chinese characters officially simplified by the People's Republic of China government in an attempt to promote literacy.
Occasionally, simplified (with respect to Chinese characters) may also be used to refer to the off-the-cuff simplifications employed in hand-writing, which classically are not official but generally widespread.
Chinese characters in use before this simplification are generally called traditional Chinese characters and remain in widespread use.
