I'm generating PDF using PDF::Template module. Any suggestions please if it doesn't support Unicode characters.

    As I understand it, PDF's "built-in" fonts don't support Unicode characters. So for anything outside the Latin-1 range you need to embed a font.

    The PDF::Reuse module now supports embedding TrueType fonts and outputting non ASCII characters using Perl's internal character string format.
