I am making a chat application , so for number verification I need to make calls (your verification code is 1234) on the number.
I want to know if I called to China in Chinese then how the numbers are pronounced. Is it the same one two three? and then the remaining sentence in chinese?

This is the xml that is used for calling:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<Response>
     <Say voice="alice" language="zh-CN" loop="2">您的新密码是 1 2 3 4</Say>
</Response>

If this complete sentence is spoken in Chinese, other than the numbers, is it the correct way to call?

I've suggested an edit for grammar (and tagging), but there were some bits I couldn't really understand some of it. If I've changed the meaning of something, feel free to revert changes. –  Maroon Aug 13 at 18:12

1 Answer 1

The translation for "your verification code is 1234" in Chinese should be

"您的认证码是 一 二 三 四" or "您的认证码是 1 2 3 4" in your code.

Note:

“1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10”

are pronounced as "yi1 er4 san1 si4 wu3 liu4 qi1 ba1 jiu3 shi2" in Chinese.

are written as "一 二 三 四 五 六 七 八 九 十" in Chinese.

As a side note, 1 in numbers are often read as 幺(yao1). Like in English, 0 can be read as zero or oh. –  hrzhu Jul 2 '14 at 13:30
    
never heard a computer generated voice to pronounce 1 as yao1 though. –  jf328 Aug 14 at 7:59
