Seoul to add Japanese, Chinese on street signs by 2016
SEOUL, Jan. 9 (Yonhap) -- The Seoul Metropolitan Government announced a plan Wednesday to redo the city's street signs in Korean, English, Chinese and Japanese and standardize their design by 2016 in a move to boost convenience for foreigners and improve the city's environment.

Under the envisioned plan, the city's 144,134 signs of 50 different types, including traffic signs and direction boards for major tourist attractions, will be written in Korean, English, Chinese and Japanese by 2016, with the 80,888 signs located near major tourist destinations such as Myeong-dong and Itaewon to be changed within this year.
