Using SIL Fonts in Documents and Publications – FAQ

Question: May I use SIL fonts in a document I plan to distribute in PDF format, or in a book I am publishing?

Answer: Please feel free to use SIL fonts in printed publications and PDF documents, including PDF documents posted on web pages. Such use is within the intended use of SIL fonts. No additional license or fee is required to use the fonts in a printed publication.

Many SIL fonts have been released under the SIL Open Font License. If you wanted to distribute SIL fonts not released under the Open Font License, you would need an OEM license.

Got questions about the OFL?

If you have questions about the SIL Open Font License (OFL), we have an FAQ or you can ask questions over in  SIL's Language Software community.
