'en chyn' is a kind of Ambigram. You can create chinese like letters in english. You have to rotate through 90 deg to switch between english and chinese-like.
Group 3 letters together(Ex. Abc). Use any of these before the group(ie. before typing Abc):
- = : ; < > *
After typing a letter, use any of these characters to add effect:
/ \ ( )
After typing a lowercase letter, use any of these characters to add effect:
_ +
Use following characters at the end of the group:
~ ^ -
Use following characters for interconnecting characters in a group:
- = : ; < > *
In this way anything can be made to look like chinese.

A 'spicey' take on the stencil. 10/10

Hi All, I have updated the sample with an animated image. Also I have updated the usage and description.
"en chyn" has come out better than what I initially thought. Create ambigrams with this and have fun. Comments/suggestions are welcome. :)

It says: "ZWYCZAJNA ŚCIANA CZEGO SIĘ GAPISZ!??" which basically in Polish stands for "JUST A REGULAR WALL, WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT!??". Done for fun, but it could be useful as an "easter egg" in some martial arts fighting video game.

This is really creative. SUPERBLY AWESOME! Just dropped 10/10 and a fave.

Ah, forgot to add - the letters colored in red say "CZAJNA", when you pronounce it (in Polish, of course), it sounds almost exactly as if you said "china". Duh.

This font is also very nice on the regular way, which is impressively clever.

Normally I strongly dislike faux Chinese, but this one is brilliant :)

@AFT, @elmo, @four, @p2pnut, @Neoqueto, @Umbreon126: HUGE THANKS! Your comments are my driving force. Thanks. And sorry for the late reply.

@Neoqueto: Thanks for you have tried this one. Between, I do not know what you mean by -- 'but it could be useful as an "easter egg" in some martial arts fighting video game' --??

@Umbreon: I am glad that you liked this version of faux Chinese. :D

Easter egg: A hidden feature like a message or a secret level or something.
