Simplified and Traditional Chinese characters translation in LibreOffice on Debian Linux

LibreOffice (version 3.5.1) can help me to translate some Simplified Chinese (SC, 簡體中文) characters into Traditional Chinese (TC, 正體、繁體中文) characters.

However, I should add more terms to make this function more usable. For example, "咨询" in SC should be "諮詢" in TC。

Here is how to improve the SC-to-TC function:

In Terminal, type:

gedit /home/nameOfTheUser/.config/libreoffice/3/user/wordbook/ChineseS2T.tcd

Copy and paste the contents below:
