Galatia and Unicode

The SIL Greek Font System is a pre-Unicode or “legacy” font system which was originally released by SIL in 1998. These fonts have been superceded by Unicode-encoded Greek fonts, such as Galatia SIL or Gentium — a typeface for the nations.

Downloading and Installing the Windows Package

To download the full package (including the fonts, utilities and documentation) click on the link below. The download file (SILGREEK.EXE) is a self-extracting archive. After the download is complete use File Manager or Explorer to select the drive icon where the SILGREEK.EXE file is located. Find SILGREEK.EXE in the directory window and double-click on it. This will extract the files to the current directory. (In the Windows 3.1 File Manager you may need to press  F5  to update the directory screen).

Once the files are decompressed, look in the newly created SILGREEK directory for the Installation Guide (GKINST.PDF). Follow the instructions in this document to install the full SIL Greek Font System. Note that you will need  Adobe Acrobat to read the Installation Guide.
