New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm currently developing an online English phrase guide (www.speakenglish.co.uk), which is being translated into a number of different languages.
We are looking to make the site available in Persian and Urdu, and I am therefore researching which fonts would be best to use for these languages.
We would need to use fonts which are Unicode-compatible, and they would also need to be available for free.
My understanding is that Nasta'liq is preferred style for writing both these languages, so if possible would like to make our site available in Nasta'liq.
One font we are considering using is Pak Nastaleeq, which seems to work well for Urdu. Would it be suitable for Persian as well, or is there a font which would work better for that language? Are there any other fonts which we should be looking at?
Any advice would be much appreciated!
