I'd also like to hear about it for Tux Paint.  We have home-grown
Input Method (IM) support, which I barely understand, but which allows
our Text (and Label) tool to accept input in:

 * Japanese - Romanized Hiragana and Romanized Katakana
 * Korean - Hangul Bul-2
 * Thai
 * Traditional Chinese

...possibly others (going off the 'Features' page of the website, which
I admit I may have not kept up-to-date WRT this feature ;) )

And of course, Latin languages (Spanish, French, Italian, etc.)
