I want to create content in Chinese language manually in drupal 7 just by inserting translated text into body, without using any module like internationalization. Kindly suggest any solution ? Do I need to add language support for chines by using 'locale' module ?

  • You can simply type Chinese text in the node body directly... Commented Nov 5, 2013 at 6:15
  • Thanks Patrick Kenny but there would be a risk of data corruption by this method. Isn't it ? Commented Nov 5, 2013 at 6:34

See how to install a language on Drupal.org. After installing and enabling Chinese as a language, you will be able to specify that a node is a Chinese language node when creating/editing it.

There is no risk of data corruption, but in order to avoid problems, never change the default language (as quoted from the documentation).
