I am using OS X 10.9.2, is there any easy way to transfer traditional Chinese to simplified Chinese? Like some apps? I don't really like using website to do this.

  • Better suited to superuser.se. This is really about how to use a mac. – deutschZuid Apr 28 '14 at 2:44

First, paste the traditional Chinese texts into Textedit, select those texts. Then Right-click the texts in Textedit, choose Services/Convert text to simplified Chinese.

  • That's right! I got it now. – Ave Maleficum Apr 29 '14 at 6:29
  • I think you should use AppleScript if it's something that you often have to do. – Blaszard Sep 21 '14 at 17:37
