Yea....they had a 'simplified' and 'traditional' option.  Neither looked like thankyou.

  If this was a problem in Vietnamese I could probably help out - but alas very very very few Vietnamese speak chinese.

I was thinking the SAME thing too, PC.  Heck, I even typed it but didn't post it.

  It took him more effort to scan, save and post than to simply ask her or ask one of his chinese friends.  It was only 3 characters.  

  I'd understand if it was a couple of phrases (like an entire letter) and SD asking for a translator.

  Does someone want attention?

I'd write her a letter in Swahili, and tell her to figure it out.

I reckon she wouldn't be too happy with that suggestion. I could do something in German though, she knows that language.

I can't write in american english, she doesn't understand that always asks questions when I use a phrase she's never heard of.

  What's the point of doing it in a language she knows.... that would kind of defeat the purpose.

Tell her to post on DS and ask us about English.  Or, tell her to figure it out. Or, tell her to buy a dictionary.

  Well....not to me.  To me it looks nothing like SD's note.   I'd make a lousy translator.

 

  Thankyou 'traditional'       感謝

Thankyou 'simplified'    感谢
