Han (Simplified variant)

The Han (Hans) script is a simplified writing system developed to increase literacy, primarily used to write the Chinese language, specifically Mandarin. It is predominantly used in Mainland China and Singapore, contrasting with the traditional Han (Hant) script used in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Macau. The script was simplified by the Chinese government in the 1950s and 60s. Modern computers and operating systems support Han (Hans) script through various encoding systems like Unicode, allowing easy integration and usage in digital platforms.
