We selected Chinese simplified as a target language and when I start to do the translation it shows Simplified Taiwan as the selected language. That is a contradiction. Taiwan uses traditional Chinese characters. Mainland China uses simplified Chinese. And that is what I want. Mentioning Simplified Taiwan appears to be very wrong.
Unfortunately, the Upload an Image button does not work here.

Hi,

Thank you for contacting WPML support!

When you say "shows Simplified Taiwan as the selected language. " - can you show me links and image on where I can see this happening so that I get a better idea on the issue?

Regards,
Bruno Kos

Please see attached screen capture. Translation to simplified Chinese is labeled as "Chinese (simplified Taiwan)"
This is misleading and might be troublesome. A Chinese might see it as an insult. Taiwan uses Traditional Chinese characters. Mainland China uses simplified Chinese. Hong Kong uses Traditional Chinese. Banks in Mainland China use traditional Chinese on checks onlz to make everyone confused. Solution: edit that message field in your code and delete the word Taiwan.

No, the image upload button does not work. Please give me your email address.

Can you upload the image here then?

Not sure why you can't upload the image into this form, we have no reports on this not working.

Hi,

As you have seen so far, I've asked our senior staff about this as this falls into linguistics/politics (possibly?) domain and they will keep you posted about this.

My issue is resolved now. Thank you for making the change in your product. Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese is now correctly labeled.
