Just published the Chinese translation:

You could select encoding on the old Google Fonts page, but I can't fount it anywhere on their new site.

I did not find the option either. The Google Font API offers text and subset query parameter, I guess Google removed the subsetting UI to encourage users to use their web font service instead.

Yeah too bad they removed it (Google Fonts), I prefer to host web fonts myself to get a better control over it and slightly better performance. Guess I will have to subset it manually in the future.

And thanks for the link the translated article and for the effort you put into it. It's so short in chinese 😆. And the hero image is great 👌. Hope it will help some more people.
