SC-TC Lexeme Mappings

In 1996 we launched a project whose ultimate goal is to develop a Chinese-to-Chinese conversion system that gives near-perfect results. To achieve a high level of conversion accuracy, our mapping tables are comprehensive, and include approximately three million general vocabulary lexemes, technical terms, and proper nouns.

This a sample of lexemic mappings between Simplified and Traditional Chinese. This is similar to the American 'gas' vs. British 'petrol'. For example, 'laser' is translated to 激光 in SC but to 雷射 in TC. For details, see this paper.
