To type in a foreign language you need to install language packs to your computer. i.e an "A" is not an "A" in Russian. After the language packs are installed, you can search for the fonts. But the pages they are on are usually in their respective language.

yeah, I have those fonts in my PC, but they are true type, not sroke. true type works for the word programs, but not for CAD.
