I have limited experience writing Chinese characters in LaTeX. I am currently using the package CJKutf8. With the command \begin{CJK*}{UTF8}{bsmi} \end{CJK*} I can print traditional Chinese characters, and with the command \begin{CJK}{UTF8}{gbsn} \end{CJK} I can print simplified Chinese characters. But I have a document where some characters are simplified and some are traditional. Is there a way to print both, without having to switch between the two commands a character at a time?

  • You can use xeCJK.

You should build with xelatex. You can also change the font. And setting fallback font is also supporting. I suggest you read the doc of xeCJK.
