Typotheque designs and develops Unicode-compliant fonts. Below are some instructions for using Unicode fonts to set Devanagari texts.
Up-to-date information about languages currently supported by our fonts is here.
Typotheque fonts support hundreds of languages, however not every version of every font supports every language. We usually create bi-script font versions, supporting two language writing script, for example Devanagari and Latin, but upon request we can also group various writing scripts into single font file.
In order to use Arabic fonts, you need to use special versions of InDesign, PhotoShop or Illustrator. These versions are labeled ME (Middle Eastern) and support bi-directional text setting for Arabic, Farsi and Hebrew. The regular version of Adobe CS3 doesnʼt support Arabic text setting.
Briefly, OpenType is a font format jointly developed by Adobe and Microsoft in the late 1990ʼs. It came into wider use only after 2000, when Adobe included support for advanced typographic features in their InDesign, PhotoShop, and Illustrator applications.
We offer fonts primarily in OpenType format. OpenType is the only cross-platform format, i.e. the same file will work on both Macintosh and Windows computers.
Typotheque has more than 15 years of experience in designing custom type. Custom type may include modifications of our retail fonts, creation of different language versions of our fonts (Greek, Cyrillic, Arabic, etc), or entirely new fonts made to fit your needs.
