This template is used for the etymology section of simplified Chinese characters: it shows which character or component was simplified, and categorizes the simplified character.

It can handle multiple characters simplified to a single one, and which component was simplified.


There is one required position parameter, and the following named parameters:

  • a – a second traditional character which was simplified to the given simplified character, for use when two traditional characters were merged via simplification to the same simplified character.
  • f, tfrom and to, to show which component and how
  • f2, t2from 2 and to 2, in case a second component was simplified


Basic usage:

{{Han simp|A}}


Simplified from A
{{Han simp|A|a=C}}


Simplified from A and C
{{Han simp|請|f=言|t=讠}}

The parameter f and t tell from which part it is simplified, and to what. For example, in simplification from to , the part that is simplified is to .

If multiple components are simplified, they should be listed in the order of writing, generally starting with radical.

For example, is simplified from by and . Thus we set f=言, t=讠, f2=賣, and t2=卖.

The character will be categorized in Category:CJKV simplified characters in the order of the parameter f, then t, f2, and t2.

If all but one simplification do not require comment, however, one can simply list the uncommented simplifications last, and only comment on the first.
