Do you have a version in Simple Chinese?

I am testing the Traditional Chinese version of QuickBooks but my client told me today that they want the Simple Chinese version...if there is one. Does anyone know if there is one?


Greetings, cindy.w.weaver.

Thanks for joining the Community. I'm here to share about supported languages in QuickBooks Online (QBO) Global.

Traditional Chinese is the language that's currently supported by QBO Global. As a workaround, you can change your browser's language to get a Simplified version of Chinese language in QBO. 

To do this, please follow these steps (applicable to the Chrome and Safari browsers):

  1. Open your Chrome browser and click on the Menu (  ) icon. 
  2. Choose Settings.
  3. Scroll down and click on Advanced.
  4. In the Languages section, click on the Language drop down.
  5. Click on the Add languages button.
  6. Click to select Chinese (Simplified) and click on Add.
  7. Click on the Chinese (Simplified) menu icon and choose Display Google Chrome in this language.
  8. Then, click on Relaunch to restart the browser.

For Safari:

  1. Open System Preferences on your Mac from the bottom menu bar.
  2. Under the Personal heading click on the Language & Text icon. You should now see a list of languages in order of preference from top to bottom.
  3. To change the order of preferred languages, click on Chinese (Simplified) and drag it up or down (top being 1st preference, second being 2nd preference, and so on).
  4. Once you have finished setting your language preference, close the System Preferences window.
  5. Now, click the Apple logo and log out of your Mac.
  6. You can now log back in to your Mac with your new language preference and open a browser to see the changes.

That should do it. Your browser will now display the Chinese (Simplified) language.

Let me know if you have any other concern. I'm always here to help. Take care.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
