DO NOT POST "I CAN DO VERY WELL CHINA LANGUAGE" AND OTHER NON-RESPONSIVE ADS! IF YOU CANNOT WRITE CHINESE, DO NOT WASTE EVERYONE'S TIME!!
ABSOLUTELY ***NO**** GOOGLE TRANSLATE OR OTHER MACHINE TRANSLATIONS. YES, I DO READ CHINESE AND CAN TELL THE DIFFERENCE.
Contest requires you to post a substantial portion of one complete article as a sample, in Chinese characters.
We need 100 very simple Chinese articles (1 - 2 paragraphs each, approximately 50-100 words) that talk about a wide variety of topics (all non-fiction) such as animals, computers, Internet, health, science, different countries, technology, famous people, inventions, travel, food, holidays, nutrition, etc. -- really any non-fiction topic. (You may choose any non-fiction topic, but please NO sexual or child-inappropriate content.) However, these articles are intended for adults who do not read Chinese well, so they must be limited to using only 175 Chinese characters (the list of acceptable characters will be provided). You may use up to five words or short phrases in each article that are outside of the 175 characters ("new words") and those new words should be underlined in the article. With these limitations, wee know these will not be elegant writing -- that is OK, but they must be grammatically correct and make sense in Chinese.
Prefer traditional characters if possible. Delivery to be in a Word file or RTF format, Unicode (UTF-8) encoding.
A sample article and the list of the 175 Chinese characters that may be used are attached.
