Eek! Online translations are usually pretty bad. 

My mandarin is okay, but not great. 

Are you running a mac or a pc? Windows and Mac operating systems come standard with Chinese langauge input options, it’s just a matter of turning them on. Also, you then need to know the romanization of the characters you want to type… your brother could probably give you that as well as the characters. Or I could type it up for you if you sent me his corrections. 

Send me a PM and I’ll see what I can do to help you if no one more capable than me volunteers! πŸ™‚

go ahead and send me a private message if you need my help – I’m really bad at checking back at threads. I can give you my email address if you need it.

I typed up my Chinese invitations in in Word using the NJ Star program. There’s a free 30 day trial. Because I could read/write Chinese, it wasn’t too hard to do. I’m getting really swamped as the wedding date approaches so I can’t offer my help. Hope one of these ladies can help!

ok, I just sent you an email back. πŸ™‚

and now I’m off to bed – I’ll check my email in the morning (I’m 12-15 hours ahead of the States) if you need anything else πŸ™‚

Not sure if you still need help, but I am available too. I’m fluent in Mandarin Chinese (traditional).

It’ll be fantastic if a word doc template exists somewhere online for the wording. People will just have to change the names and dates. That would be so helpful πŸ™‚
