I saw in the japanese translation a bitmap font is loaded.
I guess using Pango is not portable.
A translation effort in traditional Chinese will be for workstation
use of Etoys and not in the XO. So Pango use will not be relevant.
I am not sure to understand yet what are the necessary steps to get
font ready to use.
Steven told me there are unicode unified fonts for both traditional
and modern Chinese.
