Are multiple languages e.g. English and Chinese doable as an iOS app with Classic text?

I have an app (target iOS) that needs to be created first in English, then have the content converted to Chinese (which incidentally, I do not know).  With TLFtext gone, is this still reasonably easy to do?  Is it a matter of including a Chinese font and putting in the characters, or is there more to it than that?

(And if you know whether this works or doesn't work with Android, please comment too.)

Thanks.

So long as you're using a font that has those characters you would go into Embed and click on the ones you want. Or just click All Glyphs.

I think though that there can still be issues, and in the end I've also selected Use Device Fonts. I know that works on iOS and Android, but it may well be using a system font similar to my embedded one.

Sounds about right, I've seen foreign languages done in classic text before.  The issues that I know we had with classic text that were solved by TLF text were right-to-left language display (Arabic), but Chinese shouldn't have that problem.  Thanks.
