yes, I am on Windows 7. 

In the moment I must admit, that I don't know, how to include the fonts into the final PDF. To include them for the Noto font seems to be a good idea though, as that font will not be installed on most systems, and up to now I share my work with some colleagues and friends.

Do you think, that Simsun is even bigger than the Noto fonts code-point coverage-wise (I think, you read my last email concerning the limited success with the Noto font)?

Concerning the risky task: Of course you are right! Even more: I have the same problem with some insertations in Latin, old Greek and Arabic.

Fortunately I work in a big company, which as well employs many foreigners, under them being Chinese, Greek and Arabic people. 

So in the past I first looked up translations from the internet and on that base had some help with Latin, old Greek and Arabic. In the moment for those Chinese citations I have 3-4 books with translations. So I hope for the future and my Chinese colleagues... ;-)))

Thank you for your helpful hints!

If you are on windows, you can probably even use one of Microsoft's fonts for latex. simsun is extremely big code-point coverage-wise if you want a serif font; the newer chinese fonts (msjh , msyh , both sans) are also quite nice. I'd stay away from mingliu, mostly because it had not worked work well in the past with open-source applications. Be aware that there might be legal issues if you choose to distribute your work as pdf with embedded fonts.

While http://ctext.org/ is well-respected; as even its own commentery says, there are different copy-edited versions out there; some of them are well-respected too. Writing and quoting texts somewhat extensively from a language one doesn't read sounds like a risky task :-). Good luck.

I already learned before, that especially the

language,  but also to the fact, that the order of the

Many thanks for your valuable
