Authentic Chinese fonts!! Help please!
0

Hey all!

I'm currently having trouble finding authentic Chinese, Japanese and Korean Fonts. I'm looking for the ones which would actually be used in Asian design but cannot find the real deal. Does anyone have any knowledge about this, where I could possibly look?

Thank you,

Kat

There may already be a couple on your computer that arrived with software/OS packages.

Are you looking for anything specific?

There's a list on wikipedia that might help:

There's a list of foundries here:

Hey thanks for those links. Do you know any fonts which are actually widely used in China, like the chinese equivalent of our Helvetica?

Thank you,
Kat

SimSun and MS Song are Windows core fonts for Simplified Chinese (mainland China), so they are quite ubiquitous.
