- Line Width
Scale of lines and points in the interface e.g. button outlines, edges and vertex points in the 3D View.

Blender supports a wide range of languages, enabling this checkbox will enable Blender to support International Fonts. International fonts can be loaded for the User Interface and used instead of the font bundled with Blender by default.
This will also enable options for translating the User Interface through a list of languages and tips for Blender tools which appear whenever the mouse pointer hovers over a tool button.
Blender supports I18N for internationalization. For more Information on how to load International fonts, see: Editing Texts page.
