Noto Fonts: A Type Face Developed for the World by Google



The internet is available worldwide across hundreds of countries that speak different languages. Type faces however are usually made to support one native language. While there is generally no problem, Google thought about creating a single type face that could be used across any language and support many different characters in the same style – meet Noto Fonts.

Available in languages from English to Cherokee and Phoenician, Noto Sans features a smooth type face that can be used as display or copy text while Noto Serif would make an excellent Times Roman replacement. Noto Fonts have a clean look that I wouldn’t mind seeing on mobile interfaces. Check out below a few screens I grabbed from Google;

Noto Fonts comes in both Serif and Sans Serif (most other languages only have Sans Serif options currently), and currently has 96 different versions available. You can actually preview all the different language versions and download them over at Google’s Noto Fonts page!
