So I was looking at this one LDDB entry and I noticed the subtitles said "Taiwanese".

Now I'm not an expert when it comes to these things, but I'm pretty sure "Taiwanese" isn't a language and they just speak Chinese in there, don't they? In fact, while there are two spoken Chinese languages - Cantonese and Mandarin - these are both written exactly the same. The only difference might be where they use traditional vs simplified.

I double-checked with an actual Taiwanese person and, yes, it should be Chinese for common contents.

Taiwanese would only apply to the local Hokkien dialect

99.9% chance these LDs are all in Chinese.

Finally updated all tables.

Every entry in catalog / submit / update was updated as follows:

Taiwanese => Mandarin

Submit => 2
Update => 26
Catalog = 29


I keep the Taiwan language in the list in case we ever confirm a local Hokkien release.
