They seem to have a variety of Chinese GPLed fonts. But my chinese is to poor to see, wheter theyre all support UTF.
But the ones at http://www.unifont.org/fontguide/ certainly do and its all BSD / Linux  :wink:

can I change fonts definition(fonts.ufo) by gettext .mo files?
if can, each translator can use each language fonts.

see this (from wesnoth's fonts.cfg)
Quote

[fonts]
   # This is marked as translatable, to allow translators to
   # provide different font orders: one just has to install the
   # missing fonts without needing to change the gmo files
   order=_ "DejaVuSans.ttf,FreeSans.ttf,sazanami-gothic.ttf,gkai00mp.ttf"


this seem to change font by .mo file.
in fact, wesnoth's .pot contain "order=_ "DejaVuSans.ttf,FreeSans.ttf,sazanami-gothic.ttf,gkai00mp.ttf""
 lines.
by the way, sazanami-gothic.ttf is free japanese fonts.
but not gpled.

this is sazanami-fonts lisence.
