Zimbabwe / Zambia is translated as:

  • 津巴布韦 / 赞比亚 (for China, Malaysia & Singapore)
  • 津巴布韋 / 贊比亞 (for Hong Kong & Macau)
  • 辛巴威 / 尚比亞 (for Taiwan)

In General

For such cases, my suggestion is:

  1. Visit the English Wikipedia page of the topic (Zimbabwe, Zambia)

  2. Click 中文 under language to switch to Chinese Wikipedia

  3. Choose the country specific page at the top of the page

    • 大陆简体 (Simplified Chinese, China)
    • 香港繁體 (Traditional Chinese, Hong Kong)
    • 澳門繁體 (Traditional Chinese, Macau)
    • 马新简体 (Simplified Chinese, Malaysia & Singapore)
    • 台灣正體 (Traditional Chinese, Taiwan)
  4. Get the corresponding wordings


In PRC we call them:津巴布韦 and 赞比亚
