I searched the whole net and many forums... could not find the answer anywhere.
How could I get rid of those ugly chinese letters in most clock themes and lockscreens in MIUI 3.8.2?
There are some howto's on XDA but they do not work, because the behaviour of handling themes seems to have changed since 2011 - no surprise.

Could anyone help me, please?

Find the apk that contains it, use apktool to disassemble it, then translate the xml files and repack it with apktool.

Should that not work then the text is hard coded, which means that in addition to apktool you will also need to use baksmali and smali tools to disassemble and reassemble the program code.
