I have an application which I am currently translating to other
languages including Chinese. I was wondering what recommendations you
have for internationalization with regards to matplotlib. Using the
default font it seems like Chinese characters are not showing up on
the plots. I tried running this file:
# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
from matplotlib import pyplot as p
wind = u'\u98ce'
But there is just a box instead of the proper character on the plot.
Any ideas what went wrong? Do I have to use a special font?
I also tried using TeX following the example here:
but it did not work when I put in Chinese symbols.
