Datetime format for zh-* locales

Reported by: goun.lee@… Owned by: pedberg
Component: datetime Data Locale:
Phase: dsub Review:
Weeks: Data Xpath:


Hi, I work for LG Electronics. We use CLDR data for developing a platform. and We've got some locale data change feedback through the LG local office.
I want to discuss if those are acceptable to CLDR. Here'are some corrections for Chinese.

duration-minute (zh/units.json)

Just use "分" instead of "分钟"

 "duration-minute": {
     "displayName": "分",
     "unitPattern-count-other": "{0}分",

short lengh dateFormats(zh-Hant-HK/ca-gregorian.json)

"dateFormats": {
   "full": "y年M月d日EEEE",
   "long": "y年M月d日",
   "medium": "y年M月d日",
   "short": "y年M月d日"

translation of weekday(zh-Hant-HK/ca-gregorian.json)

   "narrow": {
     "sun": "週日",
     "mon": "週一",
     "tue": "週二",
     "wed": "週三",
     "thu": "週四",
     "fri": "週五",
     "sat": "週六"
    "short": {
     "sun": "週日",
     "mon": "週一",
     "tue": "週二",
     "wed": "週三",
     "thu": "週四",
     "fri": "週五",
     "sat": "週六"


They use a 24hour clock.

"timeFormats": {
   "full": "HH:mm:ss [zzzz]",
   "long": "HH:mm:ss [z]",
   "medium": "HH:mm:ss",
   "short": "HH:mm"


Change History

comment:1 Changed 3 days ago by pedberg

  • Owner changed from anybody to pedberg
  • Priority changed from assess to medium
  • Type changed from unknown to data
  • Status changed from new to accepted
  • Milestone changed from UNSCH to 35

The proposal for zh_Hant_HK standard short date is to change from d/M/y to y年M月d日. The other zh_Hant_HK standard date formats already match what is proposed here.

The proposal for zh_Hant_HK short and narrow weekdays it make them match the abbreviated forms, instead of using just 日, 一, 二 etc. We are unlikely to make that change, we need narrow forms to be narrow.

And the proposal for zh_Hant_HK time formats is to switch from h to H.

Needs discussion with TC and vetters.
