What others are saying What others are saying

LaserGreek® in Unicode™ provides professional-quality, Unicode-encoded Greek fonts in TrueType® OpenType® format for Biblical and classical (polytonic) and modern (monotonic) Greek. The Greek fonts include all standard accents, breathing marks, iota subscripts and diereses used in Biblical and classical Greek. Because the LaserGreek in Unicode (hereafter LaserGreekU) fonts include separate composite forms of each vowel with each diacritic combination, every letter shape and diacritic position is perfectly positioned, including the iota subscript directly below the left leg of the eta. Omegas and alphas, with or without diacritics, are wider than in our older non-Unicode-encoded LaserGreek and LaserGreek II Greek fonts, and iotas are narrower. (See below for a comparison of non-Unicode SymbolGreek II with the new SymbolGreekU and SymbolGreekTU Greek fonts.) The LaserGreekU fonts are distinctive in that they also include the Nestle-Aland, UBS, Leiden, many TLG text-critical symbols and sigla, extra characters for epigraphical and textual studies, and arrows for indicating papyrus grain direction. In addition, eleven of the fonts (SymbolGreekMetU, SymbolGreekTMetU, GraecaUBSMetU, OdysseaU, OdysseaUBSU, HellenicaU, HellenicaCU, and the four TeubnerLSU fonts) also include metrical long and short marks with all breathing marks and accents. The four TeubnerLSU fonts also include 78 special characters not included in any other of the fonts. All the Greek fonts also include superscript and subscript numbers, the Latin 1 character set and additional Latin characters and diacritics covering many other languages.

LaserGreek in Unicode is available for both Windows and Macintosh:
LaserGreek in Unicode Professional for WindowsLaserGreek in Unicode for Windows
LaserGreek in Unicode for Macintosh

LaserGreek in Unicode Professional for WindowsLaserGreek in Unicode for Windows
LaserGreek in Unicode for Windows includes nine keyboard layouts that provide four-characters-per-key input (instead of the normal two-characters-per-key) in Windows 7, Vista, XP, and 2000. The keyboards include 5 keyboard layouts for classical and Biblical Greek, 2 keyboard layouts for English and many other Roman-based languages, and 2 keyboard layouts for modern Greek: a standard modern Greek National keyboard layout for monotonic Greek, with the acute accent dead key on the semicolon key, and a keyboard layout for modern Greek with a transliterated (phonetic) US layout.

The 5 keyboard layouts for classical and Biblical Greek provide easy input of all the characters, breathings, accents, and breathing-accent combinations of classical and Biblical Greek. The first keyboard layout takes advantage of the OpenType layout features built into the fonts for the most logical, intuitive input available. Input order is letter, breathing mark, dieresis, accent, and iota subscript. The letter with its associated diacritics is built up automatically as you type, with all diacritics perfectly spaced. This keyboard layout requires Microsoft Word 2007 or newer (but see below), OpenOffice.org 3.2 or newer, InDesign CS4, or QuarkXPress 8.02 and is provided with both English and French arrangements. The second keyboard layout works with any Unicode-compatible application and uses deadkey input to type Greek letters with their associated diacritics. The user first types the deadkey (representing the diacritic) and nothing happens. Then the user types the vowel and the accented vowel appears in the file. This keyboard is also provided in both English and French arrangements. The third keyboard layout provides easy input of the extra characters provided in the SymbolGreekMetU, SymbolGreekTMetU, GraecaUBSMetU, OdysseaU, OdysseaUBSU, HellenicaU, and HellenicaCU fonts, and the four TeubnerLSU fonts. These characters include metrical long and short marks with all breathing marks and accents, uppercase letters with accents, breathing marks and iota subscripts (instead of adscripts), and other special characters, and the keyboard only inputs these characters. Users can easily switch between keyboard layouts at any time using a keyboard shortcut. Detailed instructions are included.

Windows System Requirements:
bulletOperating Systems
bullet

Requires Windows 7, Vista, XP, or 2000 SP3.

bulletApplications
bullet

Requires any Unicode-compatible application, such as Microsoft Word, Adobe® InDesign®, QuarkXPress 7.0 or newer, LibreOffice 3.3, OpenOffice.org 3.2, or Microsoft Publisher. (Microsoft PowerPoint is not compatible.)

bullet

Older, non-Unicode applications such as QuarkXPress 6.5 and earlier, PageMaker, and WordPerfect (tested only through version 12) are not compatible.

bullet

Microsoft Word 2010 or 2007, InDesign CS4 or newer, QuarkXPress 8.02 or newer, LibreOffice 3.3, or OpenOffice 3.2, is required to use the included GreekLS Classical OT or GreekLS Classical French OT keyboard layout for logical input order (letter-breathing mark-dieresis-accent-iota subscript), or to use the included EnglishLS OT keyboard layout for input of Latin languages with the same logical input order (letter, accent). Users of any other Unicode-compatible application will use the GreekLS Classical, and/or GreekLS Classical French (deadkey) keyboard layout, and the EnglishLS (deadkey) keyboard layout, which provide deadkey input (diacritic-letter). All keyboard layouts provide full access to all letters and diacritics used in classical and Biblical Greek; they differ only in input method.

bullet

Microsoft Word 2003 used to support the above-named OpenType keyboard layouts, but a recent Microsoft security patch for Office 2003 has disabled this support. Customers using unpatched versions of Office 2003 report their installation of Word 2003 still supports the OT keyboards. (Microsoft is aware of this problem.)

bullet

Microsoft PowerPoint 2003 (included in Microsoft Office 2003) is not compatible with LaserGreek in Unicode for Windows. All text is changed to the Arial font, whether typed with the keyboard, input using Insert Symbol, or pasted from Word using the Windows clipboard. PowerPoint users should type their text in Word or another Unicode-compatible application, and save the text as a graphic for import into PowerPoint. Users can also use WordArt to create their text. To do this in PowerPoint go to Insert, Picture, WordArt, and type your text, formatting it as desired. Alternatively, users can type Greek text directly into PowerPoint using our non-Unicode LaserGreek or LaserGreek II fonts. (Earlier versions of PowerPoint have not been tested for compatibility.)

bulletNotes
bullet

Compatibility: These fonts are compatible with the Macintosh version of LaserGreek in Unicode. No conversion of files is necessary when transferring files to a Macintosh if your applications are fully Unicode-aware and compatible fonts are installed on both systems.

bullet

LibreOffice and OpenOffice are free office suites that are compatible with Microsoft Office. You can download them from the LibreOffice and OpenOffice web sites. (These links open new browser windows.)

LaserGreek in Unicode for Macintosh
LaserGreek in Unicode for Macintosh includes six keyboard layouts for use in Mac OS X 10.4 or higher. The first two keyboard layouts take advantage of the OpenType layout features built into the fonts for the most logical, intuitive input available. Input order is letter, breathing mark, dieresis, accent, and iota subscript. The letter with its associated diacritics is built up automatically as you type, with all diacritics perfectly spaced. A third OpenType keyboard supports English and other Latin languages. These keyboard layouts require the Mellel word processor or InDesign CS5. The remaining three keyboards use deadkey input. Users type an accent key, which is a deadkey. Nothing happens until you type the next letter, and the keyboard then inputs the accented letter. The three keyboards are: 1) a phonetic Greek keyboard layout allowing access to all the characters, breathings, accents, and breathing-accent combinations of classical and Biblical Greek; 2) a standard modern Greek National keyboard layout for monotonic Greek, with the acute accent dead key on the semicolon key; and 3) a transliterated phonetic Greek keyboard layout similar to the National keyboard layout, but with letters arranged differently to be more phonetic to the English keyboard. Both the GreekLS Classical OT and GreekLS Classical deadkey keyboard layouts allow easy, logical input of the Greek and the text-critical symbols and sigla needed by scholars.

Macintosh System Requirements:
bulletOperating Systems
bullet

Requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher.

bulletApplications
bullet

Requires any Unicode-compatible application.

bullet

The only Macintosh applications we are aware of that support Unicode at this time are Microsoft Word 2011/2008/2004, Mellel, InDesign CS, QuarkExpress 7.0 or newer, OpenOffice, Pages, Nisus Writer Express, TextEdit (included with Mac OS X), Oxygen, and BBEdit. We have only tested the fonts in Word 2004, Mellel, Nisus Writer Express and TextEdit. (If you are aware of additional applications please let us know.)

bullet

Even applications that claim to be Unicode and OpenType compliant may only support a limited range of Unicode characters or a limited set of OpenType features. Contact Linguist's Software about compatibility questions and about the availability of a non-Unicode version of this product that works in all applications.

bullet

The three deadkey keyboards described above work with any Unicode-compatible application. The GreekLS Classical OT (OpenType) keyboard layout requires the Mellel word processor, available for $25 from Linguist's Software, or InDesign CS5.

bulletNotes
bullet

These fonts are compatible with the Windows version of LaserGreek in Unicode. No conversion of files is necessary when transferring files to Windows if your applications are fully Unicode-aware and compatible fonts are installed on both systems.

bullet

Not all characters in these fonts are available from the keyboards. There are additional characters in the Unicode Private Use Area of the fonts. To access these characters you can use the Character Palette or the Unicode Hex Input keyboard (included with Mac OS X). Instructions are provided in the LaserGreek in Unicode for Macintosh User's Manual.

Here's what others are saying about LaserGreek in Unicode Here's what others are saying about LaserGreek in Unicode:

"Many congratulations, Philip, for the incredible font families you have created. Your fonts are really the best."
Professor Federico Giuntoli, the Pontifical Biblical Institute, the Vatican, Rome, Italy

"Everything is perfect and is working well. Thank you for your goodness in putting forth perfection and the extra thought that makes me feel like I owe you all something even after I have paid the bill. Linguist's Software has far surpassed my expectations. You all have fulfilled everything I was hoping for with absolute perfection. I surely have the very best Greek fonts on the planet."
Brian K. Smith, Smyrna, TN

"I am always very pleased with your fonts. I use your fonts for teaching elementary Greek, and with Graeca UBSU I have stopped getting complaints that the students have trouble distinguishing soft and rough breathings under a circumflex. Your fonts have a pedagogical advantage and not only an aesthetic one. Keep up the good work."
Professor David M Schaps, Department of Classical Studies, Bar-Ilan University, Ramat-Gan, Israel

"I love your LaserGreek in Unicode product. Thank you."
Michael Rowe, Barnesville, GA

"Thank you once again for everything. I truly think that I have the best font package in the world. I am amazed at what you all have done and I am amazed that I have been able to obtain it. In truth, I could not be more delighted with my fonts. May God look on your works and kindness and bless you and yours."
Brian Smith, Smyrna, TN

You all have done just what I was hoping for in every detail in creating the SinaiticusLS and SinaiticusLSAU fonts to complement my beloved GraecaU. It works just as I had hoped. This note is to express my true thankfulness to you all. The creation of the SinaiticusLSAU was grace and kindness. I truly think we have brought this font to where God wants it.
Brian Smith, Carol Stream, IL

I am continually amazed by the variety and precision of the many linguistic products you provide. I think the UncialLSU Greek is the most elegant typeface. You also provide the simplest Greek keyboard layout.
Ronald Bruzina, Department of Philosophy, University of Kentucky, Lexington, Kentucky

"The SymbolGreekMetU font looks fabulous. I’ve only run into two compound characters so far that you don’t have in the font as a composite form, and the spacing on the compound parts worked out well even for these two. That’s pretty impressive for a work by this author. The font really does look great in the English as well as the Greek text. Much nicer than the Palatino the publisher had been using."
Linda Diering, Production Manager, Focus Publishing, Newburyport, MA

"I am truly thankful to have your product. You and your staff have been very clear, and professional; your skill and kindness leaves me with a compelling desire to express my thankfulness not only to you but to all who might read this note and that it might encourage them to purchase your products with confidence."
Brian K. Smith, Wheaton, Ill.

"Thank you for your beautiful fonts."
Jean Lathion, Thônex, Switzerland

"I am very happy to use the marvelous OdysseaU in teaching ancient Greek to my students."
Catherine Eugène, Paris, France

"Oh yes, LaserGreek OdysseaU, that's most beautiful of all! The NewJerusalemU font is my favourite Hebrew font, too."
Dr. Jean Urban Andres, SatzWeise, Germany

"Your fonts are the best!"
Bruce W. Neely, Alexandria, VA

"OdysseaU is gorgeous! It is wonderful! Most Greek fonts are plainly ugly. One was driving me crazy. OdysseaU is a sheer beauty to behold."
Peter Riedlberger, München, Germany

"As a longtime user of your Greek and Coptic fonts, I have always been impressed by the high quality of the fonts you produce and have also been grateful for your team's attention to customer service and technical support."
Prof. Byard Bennett, Grand Rapids Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, MI, USA

"OdysseaUBSU is incredibly beautiful. Thanks again."
Jeffrey Vincent, Russian Bible Center, Chattanooga, TN

"LaserGreek in Unicode is fantastic, and so is the Coptic. My publishers are going to love this!"
Professor April DeConick, Rice University, Houston, TX

"I'm very much enjoying using the LaserGreek in Unicode fonts. To have quick access to accents and critical sigla is just fabulous, since I am working on ostraka and using Unicode or character maps to represent the text is painfully tedious.  With HellenicaCU, a few keystrokes create even heavily edited characters."
A. Roy, Macquarie University, History Department, NSW, Australia

"Thanks for your wonderful software!"
Louis Demos, Harvard University

"...the Teubner font is lovely. I must have it."
Anne Klinck

"Thanks so much! Your fonts, and your work in the texts of the Scripture, is excellent. Thank you so much for both."
Albert Hembd, Trinitarian Bible Society, Plano, TX

The LaserGreek in Unicode fonts that I've been using for a while now are working wonderfully."
Daniel Rodriguez, Houston Baptist University, Houston, Texas

"It is breathtaking how beautifully you have improved the basic Greek font product, in particular with respect to the ability to insert breathing and other diacritical marks. The font itself, of course, is elegant as always. Thank you again for your diligent laboring in the Word!"
Michael Straus, Columbia University, New York, New York

"I am delighted as I work with LaserGreek in Unicode HellenicaU for Windows Vista."
Manuela Teixeira Tschanz, Geneva, Switzerland

"In 2005 I purchased a Greek New Testament in Unicode and LaserGreek OdysseaUBSU and GraecaUBSU in Unicode from you. I must say that I am very impressed. You have saved me hours of time every week in typing the Scriptures for exegesis and what joy I had lost is back again. I am so thankful to God for Linguist's Software, Mr. Payne and his staff. You even made it possible for me to read my UBS in the font I grew up with! Foolish of me, I suppose, but there is some comfort in that and it speeds up my recognition of things. In the Mellel processor you sold me I can easily alternate between English, Latin, Greek, Hebrew and German. Now my study materials and papers look like I had hoped they would. And I see that, if I should like a font that works well with whatever English fonts I have, that you are making those available too. Just excellent! You restore font-work to the eye-aiding practical art it should be. Thank you again. Gott bei Ihnen!"
Rev. Bradley E. Ragner, BA, MDiv., Pastor Messiah Ev. Lutheran Church Shiocton, Wisconsin, USA
