Good day,

I have a new laptop and would like to get a Cyrillic font/keyboard system (at least for MS Word). The last time I downloaded a font was in 2002 and I'm a bit spoiled for choice now, as there are so many more options.

Which Russian Cyrillic font/keyboard system would you recommend? I have Windows Vista but MS Word '02.

Thanks very much.

Lauren

Hi Lauren Jun 6, 2009

Could you please specify which operation system and which version of MSOffice do you have so we could help you.

Best,
Natalia

Я полагаю, Лорен не знает, что такое "Средства", поскольку у нее наверняка не руссифицированная версия. Я, кстати, тоже не знаю, что такое "Средства" в MS Office.

thanks for responses Jun 6, 2009

Thanks for your responses. My operating system is Windows Vista. I don't have MS Office; I have just the separate applications, including MS Word 2002.

Your responses helped me focus my search a bit and I've figured it out. Here's an excellent link, if anyone else is interested:

All Microsoft core fonts (come with Windows) are Unicode-based and include Cyrillic subsets Jun 8, 2009

So, you don’t need anything if you have Windows 2000/XP/Vista. Just enable a Russian keyboard layout for input.

However, you might also consider fonts from the DejaVu and FreeFont sets. Both families have much wider character coverages, and the latter family is close in metrics to Microsoft Times New Roman, Arial and Courier.
