Chinese addresses for foreigners

Recommended Posts


Foreigners have their problems with Chinese addresses … because they are in Chinese :grin:

The website “service d'adresse mondialhttp://sedamo.info/ creates a 8-letter code out of any address. So anyone can print out the address in Chinese/native writing.

Here an example: The US embassy in Moscow can be found at: YF-DF-YP-DW http://sedamo.info/YFDFYPDW

Okay, here's an example for Hangzhou: JX-CT-LY-BA http://sedamo.info/JXCTLYBA  (Guess what place that is!)

I wonder if anyone is willing to write a small APP which can display the address on a mobile phone – full-screen – for the taxi driver? Wouldn't that be quite useful? Or – for the advanced users – that I somehow can transfer the address from that code to my beloved GaoDe DiTu app?

BTW, Wikipedia knows more about this, including a link to the API for developers.
