The Languages we already have are now compiled into two documents - a .txt file and a reference PDF version. This is version 1.2

You can download the PDF & txt at the bottom of this post. There is also an RTF file but Typophile does not support posting that file type. If you want that contact me & I will email it to you.

Last Updated: October 18, 2007

Eben, sorry I somehow forgot the thread for a while.
The data I gave is as I typed it on our Congolese keyboard layout. We don't bother having precomposed characters since we need the combining diacritics for things like ɛ́, so we just use the same accent for á (instead of á).

If your application isn't displaying Á like Á, that a missing feature in the font or a bug in your text layout libraries. It might be a lot of work to add diacritics placement but it is a requirement for many African languages.

What, no Greek?

DTY's picture

I could take a stab at classical Greek, but I was hoping somebody who knows it a lot better would do it.

ebensorkin's picture

Thanks Denis!

A Greek or Cyrillic would be a great thing to have but that may have to be a later cycle. In any event I hope to have this up & available for the Roman by Late Sept now. I know it's late! Sorry to anyone who is waiting.

Nice one!

On a sidenote: I just wanted to mention that my name is cut off in the PDF (Jelmar Geert, instead of Jelmar Geertsma, in the txt it's correct).

And in my Dutch sample, in the txt-file the word 'drieërlei' for the letter 'iI' is errorneous. It says 'drieërlei Drieërlei DRIEËRLEI'. :)

ebensorkin's picture

I will correct this mistake. Thanks for catching it!

Will you send me a text file with just the correction to the dutch word? I am not seeing what you mean. Unless you are not sing the unicode and you are actually getting litterally the glyphs ’drieërlei'.

Do you see the same problem with this word in the PDF?

Florian Hardwig's picture

There is no mistake, it is ‘drieërlei Drieërlei DRIEËRLEI’. Jelmar, what you see is caused by the wrongly (?) applied text encoding of your application.

ebensorkin's picture

Thanks Florian!

Quincunx's picture

Well, I thought it had something to do with unicode as well, I was reading the txt-file in browser. So Florian was right, the problem was on my side. :)

With the new PDF however, I don't see Gentium embedded? It renders the text very small with a different monowidth typeface. I don't think that is caused by something on my side? :)

Florian Hardwig's picture

Sorry to say, but I guess you have to check your computer, Jelmar! ;)


The PDF is just fine, in AcrobatReader 8.1 and others aswell.

ebensorkin's picture

I just checked. No, what Jelmar is seeing is real. It's yet another mistake on my part for version 1.1. Florian, you have 1.0

1.2 coming up!

ebensorkin's picture

1.2 is up now. Again, my apologies for the problems.

Florian Hardwig's picture

Okay, sorry Jelmar, I am so verouderd … ;°)

Quincunx's picture

Hehe, no problem, Florian.

And Eben, I think it looks fine now. :)

Hmm. We could use a list for Esperanto. Maybe sometime in the near future I’ll collect one.
