Hi William,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

I was able to understand the condition which you mentioned here. Essential PDF have support for unicode languages. We can render the unicode text with the help of the PdfCjkStandardFont class. Languages like Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese are all come under the CJK Fonts.

Please refer the below code snippet to render chinese text,

Dim font As PdfCjkStandardFont = New PdfCjkStandardFont(PdfCjkFontFamily.SinoTypeSongLight, 12, PdfFontStyle.Bold)
page.Graphics.DrawString("是能", font, PdfBrushes.Black, 0, 0)

Please do find the sample from the below specified location and let me know if this helps.

Please refer the below documentation for more information about the Unicode feature,
