Can anyone report on which fonts (both serif and sans serif) you've used
successfully for material that must be translated from English to other
languages? I understand Arial Unicode MS works well. I'd like to find a
well-matched pair of serif and sans serif.

Perhaps as a separate issue, do you know of fonts that work for
right-to-left translation, such as Arabic and Hebrew?
