Ge'ez characters are not being recognized in the x-axis

I created a plot to see the number of occurrences of a term in my data. The problem is that the terms are written in ge’ez, and old Ethiopian language. When I plot they are not recognized. I believe the image attached will help to clarify what I am saying. Is there anything I can do so they appear in the plot?

Problem solved:

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
plt.rcParams[‘font.sans-serif’]=[‘Nyala’] #Show Ethiopian label
plt.rcParams[‘axes.unicode_minus’]=False #These two lines need to be set manually


@vitorcunha94 I’m glad you sorted this out!
