GIMP using unicode characters to display system text

I just downloaded GIMP 10.2.22 (version 3) for Mac OS (I’m running BigSur, version 11.3.1). However, while the program was loading, most of the text displayed in the dialog box was unicode (gobbledygook). Also, once the program was loaded, most of the system text is still rendered in unicode. Consequently, I can’t even go into “preferences” to see where GIMP seems to be searching for the basic system fonts. (See image files attached). Any ideas about how to resolve this? (To troubleshoot the problem, I opened up GIMP on my office computer, also running MacOS 11.3.1, and GIMP worked perfectly. I checked the font lists in /System/Fonts for the two Macs and they are identical). I’d be grateful for any assistance.
