How do I access foreign language characters?

If your computer is set up to type in English or another Latin language by default, you will not see the multilingual font characters (for example Chinese or Arabic) when you type. You will need to use a character selection utility, or change your keyboard settings to use a multilingual font.

Font licensing information?

You are permitted to install the font onto the number of personal computers for which you have purchased licenses. Most fonts on the website permit the fonts to be installed on up to 5 workstations as part of the base license.

You Can’t…
Typically, commercial font files cannot be modified, posted to websites, or further distributed without an extended license. Nor can the fonts be copied or installed onto a file server or web server without an extended license.

Please read the EULA for a complete description of the license grants for each font.
