Convert Chinese or Latin characters
In some apps, you can use services to quickly convert characters between Traditional and Simplified Chinese, or convert Latin characters (such as English or French) between half-width or full-width.
To make sure conversion services are enabled, in the menu bar, choose [App name] > Services > Services Preferences, scroll through the list on the right until you see Text, then make sure the checkboxes for the Convert Text services are selected.
Select characters in your text to convert.
Do one of the following:
Convert characters between Traditional and Simplified Chinese: In the menu bar, choose [App name] > Services, then choose a Chinese conversion service. For example, in Notes choose Notes > Services > Convert Text to Simplified Chinese.
Convert Latin characters between full and half width: In the menu bar, choose [App name] > Services > Convert Text to Full Width or Services > Convert Text to Half Width.
Full-width Latin characters align with Chinese text and are useful for aligning Latin and Chinese text in tables or forms.
