I know how to write the normal way to write numbers in Chinese but I wanted to know how to write years can anyone help me out? I really like the idea of getting this tattoed on me and I would like to be correct before I go ahead and do so.
go to Google Translate
select translate English to Chinese
input "one nine five one, one nine six four" --> Result = "一九五一，一九六四"
input "year" --> Result = 年
1951 = 一九五一年
1964 = 一九六四年
You can omit 年 if you just want straight translation of 1951 and 1964
Here is a comparison table of Chinese characters and Arabic numerals. I hope it can help you.
--> 0.零 1. 一 2. 二 3. 三 4. 四 5. 五 6. 六 7. 七 8. 八 9. 九 10. 十 <--
We write in the same order as in English
For example : 1919 - 一九一九 | 2020 - 二零二零 | 2019 -- 二零一九
But most of the time, we like to use Arabic numbers
In general, the word "年" (year) can be omitted
Because this format is only used to represent the year
If we express quantity, we will add a quantifier after that
one hundred thousand 十万(it means ten ten thousand)
ten thousand - 万 | thousand - 千 | hundred - 百 | ten - 十
such as 1293(one thousand two hundred and ninety three) -- 一千二百九十三
