Chinese traditional written graphics first appeared around 200 BC. In the 5th century AD, this form of Chinese writing more or less finally took shape within its framework and has reached our days in a relatively unchanged form. The name of the writing variant as "Chinese traditional" has been used relatively recently to distinguish this variant of Chinese writing from an alternative variant called "Chinese simplified". This version of the Chinese script appeared as a result of the reforms carried out in the 1950s and 1960s in the People's Republic of China. Now the vast majority of Chinese people use simplified Chinese written graphics. Currently, Chinese traditional written graphics continue to be officially used only in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau, as well as in some overseas Chinese communities around the world (with the exception of Singapore and Malaysia). The total number of people who regularly use Chinese traditional characters as their main variant is estimated at about 28-30 million people.
