I hope you're only waiting to be able to double-click in your file
manager, which after all is just a matter of convenience, rather
than necessity.

I don't know what your filemanager looks like, and whether it runs
within a working directory or not, but if so, you could try out
double-clicking where /only/ the directory path is Chinese, but the
actual filename is composed of roman (plain) characters. Under these
circumstances, only the filename needs to be passed to the program,
and the latter could determine the Chinese name of the current working
directory itself. I'm not optimistic, however.

It's a function of the OS and the filesystem, not the language
(and we're discussing only paths/filenames, not text files etc).
With NTFS, I think UTF-16 has been a permanent fixture since XP.

The actual rules on naming files are quite involved, and I wouldn't
claim to understand their full implications. I can only point to:
I hope these features are not interfering with the interpretation
of your filenames. The same goes for the first paragraph of:

I've no idea what these <> constructions
are meant to signify.
