Chinese romanization[edit]

I was working on List of villager names in other languages. I don't have experience in Chinese romanization so I used Pinyin converter as I think that's what's mosly used for it here, maybe. I noticed that simple and traditional Chinese use the same letters but the breaks between the syllables are in different places and I thought that serves as a help with the pronouncation so I didn't include both but I guess I should, right? Is the website I used accurate? I'd love if the list and the villager pages themselves used the same words for consistency. Thank you!

Thank you for asking me about it, I didn't notice there was a page like that. I'm a native Chinese, so maybe I can resolve your problem. Simplified and traditional Chinese are two different writing systems, but most of time they have the same pronouncation. And for the breaks, the Ministry of Education of the PRC has released a national standard called “GB/T 28039-2011 中国人名汉语拼音字母拼写规则” (The Chinese phonetic alphabet spelling relus for Chinese names), and I refered this in the pages I edited. For example, some names are like normal Chinese names, like “马丽莲” where “马” is a commonly used Chinese surname, so it should be romanized as “Mǎ Lìlián”. However, some names are not like normal names, so I prefer to treat their first character as their surname, like “鳄罗思” where “鳄” is treated as his surname, so it should be romanized as “È Luósī”.
As for the website, in fact I can't open it. I usually use Google Translate, and it's usually accurate. Some characters have more than one pronouncation (we call them “多音字”), such as “贾” in “贾宝为” -- when used as surname, its pronouncation should be “Jiǎ”. Google Translate gives the proper pronouncation. I will try to check Chinese names in Nookipedia recent days. Xzonn (talk) 20:33, May 19, 2020 (EDT)
