    Talking a bit more with the user requesting the feature, he says that
    the english description is precisely what he would like, except that
    he'd want it in chinese. So my requests could be summed up as "are
    there translated versions of unihan?"

    And more generally, for all of unicode, are there translated versions of
    the character descriptions? I know that this exists at least for
    french, but does it exist more generally?
