Hi tmzl, 

 We are sorry for the late response. 

We have analyzed your query and achieved your requirement by using ServerPdfQueryCellInfo of Exporting server events. We have changed the font name as “Arial Unicode MS” to show the Chinese character while exporting into PDF. 
Please refer the below code example, 
public void ExportToPdf(string GridModel) 
            PdfExport exp = new PdfExport(); 
            List<Person> Persons = new List<Person>(); 
            Persons.Add(new Person() { FirstName = "????", LastName = "Beckett" }); 
            Persons.Add(new Person() { FirstName = "Ben", LastName = "Beckett" }); 
            Persons.Add(new Person() { FirstName = "????", LastName = "????" }); 
            GridProperties obj = ConvertGridObject(GridModel); 
            var DataSource = Persons; 
            obj.ServerPdfQueryCellInfo = QueryCellInfo; 
            exp.Export(obj, DataSource, "Export.pdf", false, false,true, "flat-saffron"); 
        public void QueryCellInfo(object currentCell) 
            Syncfusion.Pdf.Grid.PdfGridCell range = (Syncfusion.Pdf.Grid.PdfGridCell)currentCell; 
            range.Style.Font = new PdfTrueTypeFont(new System.Drawing.Font("Arial Unicode MS", 12f), true); 
Before exporting into PDF the QueryCellInfo will get triggered to change and access the particular cell information. 
We have also prepared a sample that can be downloaded from the below link, 
Also please refer the documentation of how we can Export Server events 
Please let us know if you need further assistance.
