The Codex Vaticanus open, showing that each leaf has its original shape

Bibliorum Sacrorum Graecorum Codex Vaticanus B is the only color facsimile of the oldest surviving manuscript of virtually the entire Bible in Greek. It was written about A.D. 350 and is regarded as the most important manuscript of the Greek Bible. The photographic quality and color reproduction is amazingly faithful to the original.

LaserTransliterator for Windows

LaserTransliterator for Windows

TrueType® and Type-1 fonts for transliterating most of the world's languages: SemiticaLS in plain, bold, italic, and bold-italic styles and Roman plain. LaserTransliterator includes the complete character sets of 130 languages, including all Roman-based European languages. The product also includes a mini-space to aid precise positioning of overstriking diacritics. SemiticaLS contains 48 overstrikes and follows the keyboard layout of the Times® font for standard English punctuation marks. The Roman font includes extra overstriking diacritics. (See the samples below.) The included keyboard driver assists fast typing of overstrikes over any letter or symbol and in any combination, for the transliteration of most of the world's languages.

SemiticaLS is ASCII-compatible with the Macintosh version of the font, making transfer of files between platforms easy.

LaserTransliterator is available in two typestyles, Times-style (LaserTransliterator), and Courier-style (LaserTransliteratorMono). LaserTransliterator Pro includes the contents of both LaserTransliterator and LaserTransliteratorMono. Note: LaserTransliterator (Times-style only) also includes the Semitica® font in plain, bold, italic, and bold-italic styles, for compatibility with that older font in older files, but users are encouraged to use the newer SemiticaLS.

Windows System Requirements: The fonts install into Microsoft® Windows XP, 2000, NT, Me, 98, or 95 and work with all Windows applications that allow the user to select fonts from a font menu. The Type 1 fonts require Adobe Type Manager® in Windows Me/98/95. The product includes a User's Manual and keyboard layout chart(s). The included keyboard driver allows access to four characters per key (instead of the normal two) and alternate keyboard layouts. The fonts alone (without the keyboard driver) will install into Linux, but Linux users must provide alternate keyboard input for characters in the extended character set. These fonts will print to any printer at the highest quality allowed by your printer.

LaserTransliterator provides the diacritics necessary for transliteration of most of the world's languages. However, for transliteration of Indian languages, we recommend our specialized font, TransIndic Transliterator; and for transliteration of Greek, Hebrew, Arabic, Aramaic, and Ugaritic, we recommend our specialized font, Semitic Transliterator. Both of these products are also available in Unicode-encoded versions, which with superior compatibility, graphic output, and ease of typing. See TransIndic Transliterator in Unicode and Semitic Transliterator in Unicode for details. For a discussion of the wide range of our products that help with transliteration, see our Transliteration page.

Cost: US$ 99.95 for a single typestyle (Times®- or Courier®-style); $149.95 for LaserTransliterator Pro, containing both typestyles Order

Here's what others are saying about LaserTransliterator Here's what others are saying about LaserTransliterator:

"I have used a lot of different fonts, both for Macintosh and Windows, during last 25 years, and - as far as linguistic fonts are concerned - I have not found better fonts than yours. As a matter of fact, I have to say that both your Windows and Mac LaserTransliterator fonts are excellent."
Prof. Dr. Ljubisa Rajic, Department of Scandinavian Studies, Faculty of Philology, University of Belgrade, Beograd,Serbia

"The LaserTransliterator fonts have been of immeasurable value in my work since 1992, and I am very thankful for them and for their new versions."
Prof. Dr. Ljubisa Rajic, University of Belgrade, Serbia

"I could barely have survived without 'Semitica' over the last eleven years. Over the years I've much appreciated all that you have done. Semitica, duly acknowledged, was the official font for Routledge's Colloquial Lithuanian, which I wrote with Meilute Ramoniene. In my early computer days, I actually designed lots of fonts myself; quite soon I discovered your fonts — I never developed another font! Very best wishes."
Professor Ian Press, University of St. Andrews, Scotland

"I first bought Macintosh fonts from Linguist's Software at least 15 years ago, and I was immediately impressed with their quality and used them for years with no problems whatsoever. When I switched to the Windows platform a few years ago, I tried several different sorts of fonts, but none of them were comparable in quality and ease of use to your products. My purchase a few days ago only served to confirm once again that fonts from Linguist's Software are in a class by themselves. (May I also compliment you on the excellent user's manuals that you produce; I'm glad that your company is willing to buck the minimalist trend in the industry and continue produce well-written, well-produced, very comprehensive [PDF] manuals.) A satisfied customer..."
Jack Hagge, Iowa State University, Program in Linguistics
