In the Mandarin language, the symbol 々 is sometimes used in casual horizontal writing (or calligraphy) to indicate a repeated character, but not in formal writing, in print, or on the Internet. More often, 〻 is used (but still only casually), or sometimes the older 二. Usually, however, the character is simply written twice, without the use of any of the above symbols. In Japanese, 々 is used in any kind of writing.
