The MBTA's new ticket vending machines...

...have three language options: English, Español, and 中文 (Zhōngwén--Chinese). If you choose the last option, the screen displays in 簡体字 (jiǎntǐzì--simplified characters).

Moreover, if you then hit the button for the audible option, it speaks to you in 普通话 (Pǔtōnghuà--Standard Mandarin)!

I like it.

(However, I'm surprised that other languages--Portuguese in particular--aren't offered.)
