"Per Hyttel Larsen":

I am trying to find out if there is a hyphenation module for LibreOffice
for the Chinese language (traditional and/or simplyfied).  Can any of you
direct me towards someone who can answer this question?

There cannot be a hyphenation module for Chinese language, as the
hieroglyphic scripts are broken after each character.

​Urmas, Chinese glyphs are not «hieroglyphs». It would, indeed, be
*possible* to use hyphens in writing​
​ as most «words»​
​ in colloquial Chinese​
​ are bisyllabic and written with two glyphs, each of which constitutes not
merely a syllable but a morpheme, but it simply isn't done....
