# How to type Chinese characters in ShareLatex?

I'm going to type a few of Chinese characters among a bunch of English sentences, for example:

Note: the first ":" introduces an extensive description of the sememe "tool|用具", describing what kind of tool it is; the second ":" introduces a lower-level extensive description of the sememe "wash|洗涤", indication what is washed and what is its relation with the tool, agent, method, time or instrument.

What should I do?

There is a "Support & Feedback" link on the ShareLaTeX website; ask the support team if ShareLaTeX supports Chinese :) If not, install TeX Live! –  Xavier Jul 11 at 4:53
Welcome to TeX.SX! Usually, we don't put a greeting or a “thank you” in our posts. While this might seem strange at first, it is not a sign of lack of politeness, but rather part of our trying to keep everything very concise. Accepting and upvoting answers is the preferred way here to say “thank you” to users who helped you. –  Xavier Jul 11 at 4:55

(Founder of ShareLaTeX here). We've followed this up through our help desk, but just for reference the following minimal example will compile in ShareLaTeX (taken from How does one type Chinese in LaTeX?):

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{CJKutf8}
\begin{document}
\begin{CJK*}{UTF8}{gbsn}

\clearpage\end{CJK*}
\end{document}

Is it possible to mention the Disclosure: (Founder of ShareLaTeX here) at your profile page also to benefit users outside of this post and thereby eliminate repetition. –  texenthusiast Jul 11 at 11:21
