Hello! I realized support of cyrillics in eeschema and pcbnew on text labels, it is possible also other languages if to add the description of symbols in a file of fonts (share/grfonte.kifnt). A format of a file of fonts look in kiFont.h. I send you patch to the version trunk revision 1229.

Jean Pierre and others,

Do you think this is a useful enhancement, or a can of worms?

I am luke warm on the idea, but will volunteer to integrate the patch iff it is truly useful. It would not be useful for me, since I think all board manufacturers seem to understand the current PCB stencil font.
