It can be done with framebuffer consoles. The only time I have seen
people using framebuffer consoles are debian-installer in Asian
languages. (fbiterm, jfbterm, zhcon)
Quite honestly, your time is better spent to set up simple X setup with
UTF-8 terminal and international fonts.
If you have special needs such as Braille for blind person, I do not
know the answer. (I do not even know how to convert text from normal
chinese to Braille friendly phonetic format.)
