Tamil Typeface Tamil
Language Kit
$49 USD


Support for the Tamil script is now available for Macintosh users via the Tamil Language Kit from XenoType Technologies. Our support for this important script has been completely rewritten to offer better support. The kit includes two fonts to offer support for both modern and traditional forms. The base font provides a feature that allows both orthographies but since only one application currently supports this use of features, the second font allows users to display traditional forms.

Tamil doesn’t require many sophisticated features for proper display but there are a large number of ligatures and some vowels that require graphic transposition. Our Tamil font uses Unicode and Apple’s advanced typography to accomplish these things for you.

With an appropriate Unicode-compatible application, you can use our Tamil support to produce lots of different types of documents, including emails, web pages, standard text documents and lots more.

The Tamil Language Kit from XenoType Technologies includes two fonts and two different keyboard layouts (including an ISCII style driver and a pseudo-phonetic layout). Our Tamil support in conjunction with the Sinhala Language Kit supports the bilingual environment of Sri Lanka.
