What does this character mean? 大家好!(张床)-> According to Rosetta Stone (A software by which I learn Chinese), this character means ''bed'', however according to my Chinese dictionary bed in Chinese is ''床''. Which one is correct?

张 or 張 in traditional Chinese, is the measure word for a bed. 一張床 - one bed 兩張床 - two beds 三張床 - three beds 八張床 - eight beds Laurence

I'm afraid it isn't. Look at #1. ' 张' is the measure word of a bed. Omitting the measure word is not allowed in Chinese, but it is common in English.

Could it be that the difference between the two is "traditional/simplified"?
