Category: Wiki Chinese — this category here on WikiIndex contains wiki sites and / or wiki engines that are written in Chinese, irrespective of their subject-matter. For wiki sites written in languages other than Chinese, see category:Wiki language for an appropriate selection, and for wikis written in more than one language, see category:Wiki Multilingual.

The Chinese language (ISO 639-1zh; ISO 639-2chi [B], zho [T]; ISO 639-3zho; Glottologsini1245[1]) is the official national language of the huge Asian country of China. Specifically, 'Chinese' (中文; Zhōngwén) is an umbrella term for a group of many (several hundred) different languages and dialects of China.

Standard Chinese (ISO 639-6goyu (Guoyu), huyu (Huayu), cosc (Putonghua)), also known as Standard Mandarin, which is based on the Beijing dialect (ISO 639-6bjjg, also known as Pekingese or Beijingese; the official language of the People's Republic of China (PRC) and Taiwan (Republic of China), along with one of the official languages in Singapore), is the predominant language of China. However, there are hundreds of related Chinese languages, known collectively as Hanyu (simplified Chinese: 汉语; traditional Chinese: 漢語; pinyin: Hànyǔ, or 'Han language'), which are spoken by 92% of the population. The Chinese languages, or 'Sinitic' languages, are typically divided into seven major language groups (ISO 639-5: zhx), and their study is a distinct academic discipline.
