How To Get Chinese Fonts For Word
As a learner of Madarin Chinese, being able to write Chinese characters is a huge part of studying. Even though I learned how to actually write Chinese characters with hours and hours of hard practice, most of the communication I am involved with that requires Chinese characters is all digital: on the computer or smartphone.
However, programs such as Word and PowerPoint only offer limited ways to write in Chinese characters if you have a non-Chinese version installed. This can be quite boring and annoying when creating presentations or simply writing a beautiful letter with Word. That’s why I searched the Internet on how to get beautiful different fonts for your Microsoft bundle!
I worked with a Chinese version of Word and PowerPoint at my job and realized that these versions include just as many different and beautiful fonts like our English or romanized versions. Therefore, I looked up how to get different Chinese fonts to use on my own computer with German Windows installed on it.
Where to get fonts:
All you basically need to do is to download font files (.ttf) and install them. It’s super easy and there are many sites where you can download cool fonts from. A great site for different Chinese fonts is “Free Chinese Font”.
This website offers a wide selection of beautiful Chinese fonts. They have different fonts depending on traditional or simplified characters.
How to install:
1. Choose a font of your liking on copy and paste the download link into a new tab.
2. After the download, open the file and click install.
3. You can use the font in word. You can find it under its file font name.
