Linguist's Software, a font foundry since 1984, produces high-quality TrueType and Type 1 fonts for over 1900 languages for Windows and Macintosh platforms. Most products are also available for Linux and UNIX Operating Systems. We also specialize in custom font design and creation.

As the world's premier language font foundry, our products are widely used in publishing. For example, our Hebrew fonts are being used to prepare the Biblia Hebraica Quinta by the United Bible Societies and the Oxford Hebrew Bible. Our Greek fonts were used to publish both the Nestle Aland Novum Testamentum and the UBS Greek New Testament. Our Cyrillic II fonts were used to publish the modern language Russian Bible in both Moscow and the United States. Our LaserIPA fonts are used to publish the Journal of the IPA. Dr Pepper and 7-Up licensed our Arabic fonts to produce their beverage cans in the Middle East.

Fonts supporting over half of the languages we cover are also available in a Unicode(TM)-encoded version, with keyboard support for both Windows and Macintosh. Several of our fonts also include OpenType layout features.

Keyboard resources included with our products make typing different languages on the US (or other national) keyboard easy and logical, and make our products complete solutions for typing languages in your regular applications. In Windows, our keyboard drivers provide access to four characters per key (instead of the normal two) and provide the ability to change keyboard layouts with a hotkey. On the Macintosh, our scripting programs provide alternate keyboard layouts and allow automatic contextualization of characters as text is typed.

Linguist's Software also produces Bible study software, including Greek, Hebrew, French, German, Spanish, Russian, Latin, and English Bibles, and a Macintosh Bible search program.

Sample printouts of all fonts are available to be sent to fax or postal addresses.
