FontGen is multilingual by its unicode support. With FontGen, you can make your graphical LCD to speak any language on earth.

With little effort, you can switch your user interface to Chinese, Greek, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Hebrew, Indian or Arabic.


All you need to do is deciding the characters you'll use, and submit these to FontGen. Next, you'll have your C-file.

With its unicode support and with various symbol fonts on your system, you can also create fonts for your icons/symbols.

For unicode support the operating system should be Windows© NT/2000/XP.

If you don't have any unicode fonts on your system, try out the Arial Unicode MS font, coming with the Microsoft Office 2000© packet. This font is not installed by default, and you should re-run the MS Office© installer to install this font. Before using this font by FontGen, make sure that it is legal to use the font in this process.

You can either type to the memo on the FontGen form, or copy from other programs like MS Office Word©. You can insert glpyhs also by their codes. Just use the context menu opened with the right-click to insert chars with hexadecimal codes.

Try this program, to view the unicode characters and some short description for the characters. Once you opened the program, just select your unicode font from the left list.

Besides the unicode glyph support, FontGen supports negative advance and offsets for glyphs which lets the glyphs to be position above/below of the previously printed glyphs. This is required for the glyphs like the ones in Indian and Arabic. It does also enables a better look for some italic fonts.
