I just got a request to translate EN-TH document. However, the font to be used must be DCO Thai only. I don't have this font on my computer and couldn't find it on the Internet. Anyone please advise me. Where can I buy/download this font?

Thanks in advance.

Google for "dcothai.ttf", "dco-thai.ttf" or "dco thai.ttf".

Where can I buy/download this font?


www.monotype.com sells any desired font.

Many thanks Mar 30, 2013

I followed your advice, but I found only few sources to download on the Internet and all of them didn't work on my computer.

I've just decided to reject this job. Thanks for your help.

TTF doesn't work? Mar 30, 2013

TrueType fonts (.ttf) should work on any Mac, Windows or Linux PC.

With Mac & Windows they can be used right out of the box. With certain Linux versions it might be necessary to install the missing FreeFont library upfront.

The DCOThai.ttf was successfully installed & run on my computer. But the file itself has a problem. Mar 30, 2013

After the installation, I tried using the font and found that I could not type the character "ง". Once I typed this character, the language would automatically change to English and the font became "Cordia New"

I found only two or three websites that provide DCOThai.ttf to download and it seems they share the same source (I noticed that the zip files have the same name). So, all the files I got have the same problem.

That's why I said it didn't work.

Thanks again for your opinion. I appreciate your kindnessicon_wink.gif
