Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

When you say better sources, do you mean software (download mirror) sources?

If so, you can open the administration menu and select software sources and then select a different 'Download from' location for the LinuxMint software. Then you can click on the 3rd party software tab, and consult this list: http://www.debian.org/mirror/list and edit the entry for Debian testing (it should be the first one listed). Then update to a closer url for your location. Mine is: http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian

As far as changing the language, hopefully someone else can assist with that.

Read this how-to guide for installing Chinese language settings. You'll need the localization, fonts, and input method, at least. The how-to should get you at least a minimal working Chinese environment, though.

I'm not sure what you mean about sources. Please try to explain your question more fully.
