Different fonts for different languages

Recommended Posts

Hey there everyone!

I'm currently working on a bilingual site (Russian and English). The problem is that site-wide fonts only work out for the English language while Cyrillic letters/words look pretty ugly.

The question is whether I can use different font for the Russian part of my site via extra coding (using custom CSS)? 

The structure of my site is the following: a welcome page with two buttons (English, Russian); each button leading to a language-based homepage, so there are two homepages and corresponding sub-pages made in the two languages.

You need to use custom code in this case.

You can use different font, by targeting Page with Page ID.

Each page will have different ID.

Thank you for your answer.

And what exactly the code will be? Or where can I look for that info? I'm completely new to CSS and coding 😞

I would add that using OpenType Std (Standard) is not enough as they contain only the extended Latin character set. Instead, you need OpenType W1G (WGL4) which provide support for Cyrillic alphabet (for example Russian or Serbian cyrilic) and monotonic Greek.
