WorldType
Page: 1 2 

WorldType allows Unicode fonts to be grouped into individual modules that cover the customer's required language support. For example, suppose that a customer needs to publish a report in the major languages of Northern India. By gathering the main scripts of that region (Bengali, Devanagari, Gujerati, Gurmukhi) into a font mudule, the customer can be assured access to all the necessary languages: Assamese, Bengali, Bihari, Gujerati, Hindi, Kashmiri, Marathi and Panjabi. The graphic seen below illustrates the flexibility of WordType. The Nothern Indic module can be achieved a) through a single font containing multiple scripts or b) through multiple fonts that each contain a required script. If another customer required support for all Slavic languages in one simple package, a font module could be composed that Cyrillic and Latin scripts (East European subset). With this module, one could write in all of the following languages: Belorussian, Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Macedonian, Polish, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovene, Sorbian and Ukrainian.

So whether the focus is on a family of languages, a geographic region, or any other selected criteria, a WorldType module can be customized to meet customer
requirments. By further grouping various WorldType modules, a customer can achieve the desired degree of Unicode coverage.

Each Unicode conformant font allows the users to view languages not normally supported by Western operating systems.
