New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
For the first time in my career, I have to design a fashion catalog in 4 different languages : English, French, Chinese and Russian. I have no problem setting type in French and English (since Montréal is bilingual), but I'm a little confused with the last two languages.
The copywriters will send me the final texts in a couple days. So far, I have no idea what its going to look like.
Unfortunately, I don't know anything about setting type in Chinese and Russian. Should I use Cyrillic characters for Russian ? Are there a lot of typefaces available in Roman/Russian/Chinese ?
How should I set the punctuation in Russian ? Same as in English ? Do they even have punctuation in Chinese ?
Anybody has a good resource website for this issue ?
So many questions ! Any advice will be much appreciated !
