I want to add my Chinese name in my thesis. I follow the sample codes from here.




\title{\LARGE Thesis Title}


The work in this thesis is my own except where otherwise stated.

{\bf Real Name} \\[1ex]
{\bf Chinese Name} \\[1ex]


The first name is English and the second is Chinese. How to add Chinese characters, please? Thank you! Please note this is only the place I intend to add Chinese characters.

    The simplest way is to typeset the Chinese name with XeLaTeX and the standalone class, and use the PDF for inclusion. – egreg Dec 21 '14 at 0:17
  • Thank you for the response. However, I do not know how to do it. Could you make an example, please? – LaTeXFan Dec 21 '14 at 0:27
  • What are the characters you want to use? – egreg Dec 21 '14 at 0:30

The simplest strategy is to create a PDF file with the Chinese name and including it with \includegraphics as you already do for the signature.

I'll use Donald Knuth's Chinese name for the example



This uses resources found in TeX Live (probably also on MiKTeX).

With the same idea you can also use XeLaTeX, if you have a Chinese system font.

\setmainfont{Kaiti TC}% or any other font supporting Chinese
