Now get EuroSlavic® fonts
in a Unicode™-encoded version!

EuroSlavic® in Unicode™ provides professional-quality, Unicode-encoded fonts in TrueType® OpenType® format for typing all Western and Central European Latin-based languages, plus many other languages. The fonts include all standard diacritics used in these languages. Because the EuroSlavic in Unicode fonts include separate composite forms of each vowel with each diacritic combination, every letter shape and diacritic is perfectly positioned. Because the fonts are Unicode-encoded they are interchangeable with other Unicode fonts that support these languages.

Albanian Estonian Latvian Slovenian
Aranese Flemish Lithuanian Sorbian
Azeri (Latin) French Malay Spanish
Basque Galician Maltese Swedish
Bosnian (Bosniak) German Norwegian Turkish

Many other African, Native American, and other languages are also supported. Occitan dialects, including Auvernhat, Gascon, Langue d'òc, Languedocien (Lengadocian), Limousin (Lemosin), Provençal, and Vivaro-alpin (Alpine, Vivaro-alpenc), are also supported.

Font Samples: A single font sample is shown below for each font. Links to additional font samples will open in a new browser window and will give you a greater appreciation for the beauty and variety of these fonts. These additional samples will show you the complete character set. The samples are on separate pages because the graphics are quite large and will open slowly if you have a slow dial-up connection. Note that these samples are low-resolution web samples (graphics). The actual fonts will always print to the highest quality your printer is capable of producing and will be consistently beautiful.

EuroSlavic in Unicode for WindowsEuroSlavic in Unicode for Windows
The product includes two keyboard layouts that provide four-characters-per-key input in Windows 7, Vista, and XP. The first keyboard layout takes advantage of the OpenType layout features built into the fonts for the most logical, intuitive input possible. Input order is letter, accent, accent. The letter with its associated diacritics is built up automatically as you type, with all diacritics perfectly spaced. This keyboard layout requires Microsoft Word 2010/2007/2003, Adobe InDesign CS4, QuarkXPress 8.02, OpenOffice 3.2, LibreOffice 3.3, or Lotus Symphony 3. The second keyboard layout works with any Unicode-compatible application and uses deadkey input to type letters with their associated diacritics. The user first types the key representing the deadkey (or the accent) and nothing appears to happen on screen. Then the user types the letter and the accented letter appears in the document.

Microsoft Word 2010/2007/2003, InDesign CS4, QuarkXPress 8.02, OpenOffice 3.2, LibreOffice 3.3, or Lotus Symphony 3 is required to use the included EuroSlavicLSU OT (OpenType) keyboard layout for the most intuitive input order (letter-accent-accent). Users of any other Unicode-compatible application will use the EuroSlavicLSU DK (dead key) keyboard layout, which provides dead key input (accent-letter). Both keyboard layouts provide full access to all letters and diacritics in the fonts; they differ only in input method.

bullet

Microsoft PowerPoint 2003 (and earlier) is not compatible with EuroSlavic in Unicode for Windows. All text is changed to the Arial font, whether typed with the keyboard, input using Insert Symbol, or pasted from Word using the Windows clipboard. PowerPoint users should type their text in Word or another Unicode-compatible application, and save the text as a graphic for import into PowerPoint. Users can also use WordArt to create their text. To do this in PowerPoint go to Insert, Picture, WordArt, and type your text, formatting it as desired. Alternatively, users can type directly into PowerPoint using our non-Unicode EuroSlavic fonts. (Earlier versions of PowerPoint have not been tested for compatibility.)

Printer: The fonts will print to any Windows printer at the highest quality allowed by your printer.

bulletEuroSlavic

The non-Unicode EuroSlavic fonts are not interchangeable with EuroSlavic in Unicode. Both Unicode and non-Unicode fonts, including Unicode and non-Unicode versions of EuroSlavic, may be installed on your system (since they have different file and font names) and may even be used in the same files. They are not, however, interchangeable.
