This has already been discussed on GitHub, and its not possible because the radio does not contain a chinese language font.

The font used is a custom 8 bit font, and the firmware does not support unicode characters at all.

The Japanese version is a completely different build, and there is a completely separate Japanese font developed by a Japanese ham.
And Japanese only has a small number of characters so it was possible to make a custom 8 bit font for Japanese

Its not that simple.

Did you count the number of unique characters in your text?

I think its less than 256 but if its not, then it wont be possible.

As well as a special font you also need to change the font data creation script/tool

You need to discuss this with F1RMB, as he handles the font system

I don't think Baofeng will even reply to something related to the OpenGD77 firmware.

About the Japanese support, it uses katakana syllabary, which has 64 symbols.
Is there any Chinese equivalent ?

Also, for foreign language, the number if usable glyphs are less than 256, as it's around 126 since ASCII table is needed, in any case.


Cheers.
