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.

## Parameters[edit]

`1=`

- The original traditional character.
`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=`

,`t=`

**f**rom and**t**o, to show which components were simplified and how.`f2=`

,`t2=`

**f**rom**2**and**t**o**2**, in case a second component was also simplified.`nocap=`

- For changing "Simplified" into "simplified". The input doesn't matter.

## Examples[edit]

Basic usage:

{{Han simp|請|f=言|t=讠}}

yields:

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

{{Han simp|讀|f=言|t=讠|f2=賣|t2=卖}}

yields:

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

## Complex cases[edit]

If multiple characters are simplified to the same one in different ways, which both require comment, please use multiple copies of `{{Han simp}},` as at *叹*, simplified from *嘆* and *歎*.

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