The sample is pretty small. Also, do you need just the SOAP letters?
Yi Baiti is a font created for a very specific non-latin script* so arguably the latin part of it is based on an already existing latin typeface.
I would try something like Nimbus Sans Novus** or other Helvetica (Neue) version.

By the way, nowadays Macs use Windows fonts just fine.
