I think 中文 is written as 中国语 in Japanese. Actually, Chinese say 中文 or 汉语,we never say 中国语。

I never use "中国语", I usually say "中文" or "汉语".

中国语 chūgoku-go / chuugoku-go; Japanese 中文 zhōng wén; Chinese. Different languages using the chinese characters/kanji; but there is nothing wrong with using 中国语 in chinese as the direct translation would mean the same thing.

@ anita998710:我看了所有的答案,結果竟然沒有一名回答者能 *正確地* 書出日語所表達的「中国語」;可卻有不少人卻言之鑿鑿地說「中国语 (或) 中國語」就是日語的寫法,有些更無知到說這是中國大陸以外的華人用以表達「中文」的稱呼。唉,這真可算是蠻悲哀的。
