Mandarin, a Chinese language is used by people in Mainland China, Taiwan, the Mandarin educated Singaporeans, and Malaysians. It is the most widely spoken language in the world with 1 billion users in countries with Mandarin as its (or one of its) official language(s) alone.
The Mandarin in the above countries differs slightly. Firstly, the official written Mandarin in China and Singapore is simplified Mandarin while that of Taiwan is traditional Mandarin. Secondly, the spoken Mandarin is different as the Mandarin within each country is shaped by their own history of influences from other non Mandarin languages of neighbouring countries, colonisation and etc.
The overseas Chinese resident in non Mandarin speaking countries, such as America, Europe, Oceania, Africa and other Asian countries continues to read Mandarin websites and other news media.
In Malaysia, the Chinese refer to the popular Chinese newspapers and Chinese websites in Mandarin to decide on their business, personal and family financial planning matters and spending habits. Usually, these news media often report on articles that are not found in the other language papers and often in greater details. Therefore, Mandarin translations of advertisements for imported luxury goods are frequently found in these Mandarin newspapers.
