I was a bit worried about languages that don't even use roman characters like Chinese, Thai, Japanese, Hindi, etc.

Scout です か?(Basically, "Is that a Scout?" in Japanese) doesn't really sound that weird I suppose, but I'm not the one to make that decision. Until the devs discuss this, assume that we'd want to translate the names for now. (If you don't have East Asian fonts installed, you're not gonna see my crazy Japanese characters in bold, you'll just see Scout ?? ??.

I'm not 100% sure but we probably don't have those letters in the font. This is a give and take with the community here. Whoever made the font didn't have the foresight to put in some characters like, say, Cyrillic characters for Russian and Greek.

If someone does the actual translation, however, I don't see why we couldn't add them into the font (or make an extra font for that language). If we have the translation we'd be more inclined to get them added in.
