I am teaching a CAT tool to a group one of whom wishes to translate from Classical Greek. I went to install another language in Microsoft XP and found there were different Greek / Greek Latin fonts to choose from. Which should I install from Windows or......??
Thank you in advance for your help, excuse the English, but it is to help Greek translating!

Palatino Linotype Nov 9, 2006

Use Palatino Linotype, which comes with Windows and contains all the necessary (accented etc.) characters for classical Greek.

May I also suggest this site: http://www.lexilogos.com/clavier/ellenike.htm
for typing short pieces of text in case you don't have the necessary keyboard utility for the accents.
