Linotype stands for the highest level of technical quality

Linotype fonts meet the highest technical and aesthetic guidelines. Their aesthetic side is created by some of the world’s best typeface designers, and their technical level is world class, too.

At, we provide typefaces for Mac and PC in PostScript™ and TrueType™ format, as well as more than 7,000 OpenType™ fonts, the new cross-platform format. Our TrueType and OpenType fonts are often paired with delta hinting – a technology that improves onscreen display performance. Linotype’s XSF fonts (the OpenType Com series) have taken hinting one step further; these fonts have been optimized for maximum legibility in office environments.

Additionally, fonts in our Com series support 48 Western, Central, and Eastern European languages. Linotype also has fonts for Vietnamese, Greek, Cyrillic, Hebrew, Arabic, and more. New technology even makes it possible to set all of the world’s major languages with a single font!
