Today I find you are talking about this problem, so I just wanna tell
you that I think it's because of the configurations of fonts, some fonts
don't contain enough Chinese characters. I'm using a Chinese OS(Windows

idea of how to fix it.

related to the OS.
In any case, Yana would correct me if I am wrong, I don't think we are
changing the font used with menus labels and buttons.
P.S. Niepin, I didn't get the chance to do this earlier so I'd like to
thank you for contributing the Chinese translation! Cool stuff!
