Differentiation between Japanese, Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese
I've had so many questions about this issue and I've seen so many misleading auctions, that I've decided to edit this page.
There is four different Asian Languages: Japanese, Korean, Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese.
Japanese and Korean have normal Magic: the Gathering logos. You have to look at the bottom of the booster where it is written "15 additonal cards". Look at the difference between Korean and Japanese on the picture below (Koreal on the left, Japanese on the right)
You can easily identify Traditional and Simplified Chinese by looking at the MtG logo at the top of the booster pack. Under the typical MtG logo, there is three ideograms for S-Chinese (on the left side of the picture below) and five ideograms for T-Chinese (on the right side of the picture below).
