Recently my company commissioned a Flash based eLearning module from a vendor. The module was in English. We then contracted a version in Chinese. When we got the files back we noticed a dramatic increase in the file size of the relevant resources. The size increase is substantial and causing problems with deployment.
I suspect this may have something to do with font embedding, but don't know for sure. My question: is it conceivable that embedding Chinese fonts would cause a dramatic increase in file size?
I'm including screenshots of the resource files for both the English and Chinese versions.
