- "Simple form characters" are often used in Chinese as well. However, Wiktionary is an academic place, more academic and official name should be used. In Chinese, Shinjitai are often referred as "Simple form characters of Japan", but I would change it to "Japan Shinjitai" if I find one on Chinese Wikimedia. This is according to the "names follow its owner" principle, and it is the more academic wording. Not to mention that Japanese Wiktionary has a page on "Simplified characters" (https://ja.wiktionary.org/wiki/简化字), and even someone who didn't know what the "Simplified characters" are would understand the meaning of "Simplified characters" after he or she viewed the page.
