It seems it's impossible to translate with Asian languages

Because of the .BMP font system, It's very hard to translate the game with Asain language.
We can only use 16x16=256 characters in the font, while there's thousands of characters in a Asian language.
So, if there's some way to make Asian fonts, or just this game support non-alphabet characters, it will be simple to translate the game with chinese, korean, and japenese.

ps. Actually there are translations wtih chinese and korean. But it uses external program and very unstable. It should be supported because there are many players who want to play this game in Asian countries.

This is the translated game, and it uses external program so it has many bugs. And cannot publish with Steam Workshop.

There's my mod in Steam Workshop.
But you can only see the strange codes without some translate program. (It's simillar to a hacking program)

I just want to make translation without external program!
Playing Prison Architect with Asian languages by Steam Workshop - no need to install strange external hacking program - That will be awesome.

Bitmap fonts suck exactly because of this problem.
