Ipe is a drawing editor that may suit your requirements. See, for
example, http://web.mit.edu/ipe_v6.0p14/share/ipe/6.0pre14/doc/manual_1.html

"If you are using the LaTeX document preparation system in an
environment where you can include (encapsulated) Postscript figures or
PDF figures, then the extendible drawing editor Ipe may be able to
help you in the task. Ipe allows you to prepare and edit drawings
containing a variety of basic geometry primitives like lines, splines,
polygons, circles etc." it says. It also says, "Ipe also allows you to
add text to your drawings, and unlike most other drawing programs, Ipe
treats these text object as LaTeX text." So you should be able to add
text in any language for which you have latex support. Ipe is also
freely available.
