The FAQ on the Kobo site says only French and English are supported right now.

Thanks for the replies.
Think iPad would be more suitable for her.

... and not just Chinese. The Canadian version I purchased has insert material in English, French and Spanish. But the Kobo set-up actually supports a few dozen languages, including Tagalog and three flavours of Chinese. I suppose that is an Android 2.3 thing ... but quite surprising nonetheless. What a versatile unit!

It supports Chinese books of epub format natively, I just tested it successfully, though the default Chinese font is not good for display.
