6 issues of the Liahona magazine are now published each year in simplified Chinese in addition to traditional Chinese, which has been available for some time.

Traditional Chinese characters are typically used in Taiwan and Hong Kong, and simplified Chinese characters are used in mainland China.

This translation of the Liahona in simplified Chinese will be welcomed by individuals from mainland China who have joined the Church while studying or living outside the People’s Republic of China. Thousands of such members are now living in the United States, Australia, Canada, England, and many other countries.

Online Edition

The Liahona in simplified Chinese is also available online on the website The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in China (MormonsAndChina.org) along with other LDS materials in simplified Chinese.

Print Edition

The January 2012 issue was the first time the magazine was translated into simplified Chinese and published with complete, full-color graphics. (Previous issues were provided as text-only documents.)

Printed copies are available for purchase at the distribution stores in Hong Kong and Salt Lake City. Other stores may also carry the simplified Chinese edition, depending on local demand.

Readers outside of mainland China who are interested in subscribing can do so through the Online Store or by calling Customer Support (in the United States, call 1-800-537-5971; in Hong Kong, call 852-2756-5777; for other countries, see the list of customer support numbers).
