    Well Chinese is not a language. There are two types of language spoken in China: Mandarin and Cantonese. There are others too but not as major as these two.

    i have too, but this setting doesn't work on chinese name, you can try it by installing chinese (simplified)[中文(简体)] , and type any chinese word, save it, try change to surname, name and name surname, it doesn't change

    I do not read or understand chinese mate, so it'll only be a fancy design to me and not some alphabet.
