The simsun font can be obtained from:
http://www.fontmarketplace.com/font/simsun.aspx
Once installed just select it like any other font in the toolbar or as Psychotec has said make it the default font.

if i make it the default font, that means everytime i open up excel, it will show this font as default. what i want is only when i switch my language to chines to type chinese characters, then it will change the font to simsun.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

we have installed the font, can see it in the toolbar... it still will show the default font 'arial' when we switch from english to chinese. we will have to manually go to the toolbar to select the simsun font, which is what we don't want to.

Is this what's it all about? Getting points? I have the same issue as the OP and it was precisely described. You can't just shut down the question. Please answer it!
