Sites of Interest

We have provided links to sites of interest in multilingual computing and other closely related areas of scripts and languages as well as a guide for finding language fonts on the Internet.

Sites on Scripts and Writing Systems

Scripts and Writing Systems

These are some sites on the Web with information about scripts, writing systems and orthographies.

The intent is to provide links to sites that describe scripts and writing systems, as opposed to sites that provide content in various scripts and writing systems, or that provide computing resources such as fonts (though some of the sites do provide such resources).
