There is no such thing as Chinese alphabet. Or is there?

Okay, truth be told, there is no such thing as a Chinese alphabet. But, just for fun, I have selected characters that are somewhat similar in appearance (not in sound!) to the letters of the English alphabet. They can be used like code.

Once you get a hold of this secret writing system, you no longer have to worry about others reading your diary or other secrets! Chinese, Japanese, and Koreans will recognize the characters, but the combination of characters won’t make sense to them. And people who cannot read Chinese won’t even try to read it.

The symbols used in this “alphabet” are real Chinese characters. All are either positive or neutral in meaning.

The translation provided by Chinese Alphabet is intended for personal use and entertainment only. Not recommended for tattoo artists to use this to tattoo their clients, iPhone app developers to localize Chinese apps, CIA agents to communicate national secrets, or security professionals to encrypt passwords.
