See User:Dapete/vCat for general information about vCat.

vCat already supports all languages with Wikipedias over 1.000.000 articles. The goal is to extend this to all over 100.000 articles, and as many as possible over 10.000 articles.

Although the font used by GraphViz is set to DejaVu Sans, the Cairo library it uses for font rendering will automatically pick up fonts as needed if specific glyphs are not included in this font.
