Although some people can read both simplified and traditional Chinese
characters, there are users who have difficulty reading one of them,
either simplified or traditional.  I suggest no matter in any
circumstances, we should not use only simplified or traditional
Chinese translation to present a single "Chinese" page. Since you have
already made your translation, we can put both zh-CN and zh-TW pages
online for users of both different character forms.
