Incorrect naming for the "Chinese, Traditional" language

I just registered to be a volunteer translator/subtitler for the language named "Chinese, Traditional". I am a native speaker of it and I write it. However, I noticed that the Chinese characters inside parenthesis for "Chinese, Traditional" is incorrect.

The current wording (簡體字) means "Simplified Chinese", which is another language. It should mean Traditional Chinese, and the correct character for Traditional Chinese should be: 正體中文

The incorrect wording would cause speakers of that language to consider your site not politically correct or friendly to them. Even though it is just an honest mistake, it can be misconceived to be politically motivated. Please correct the wording as soon as possible!

By the way, please correct all the places involving language selection. There may be more than one instance.

Thank you!
