Best FREE FONTS for Japanese, Korean & Chinese Languages

Good & free ASIAN fonts

In this tutorial we are checking out couple of very good font families for foreign languages. If you maybe need them when creating videos for Japanese, Chinese or Korean languages or you just have to translate videos or other projects (for some reason) to these languages.

The FONTS we are going to check in this tutorial:

1. NOTO SANS & SERIF (By Google) »

“When text is rendered by a computer, sometimes characters are displayed as “tofu”. They are little boxes to indicate your device doesn’t have a font to display the text. Google has been developing a font family called Noto, which aims to support all languages with a harmonious look and feel. Noto is Google’s answer to tofu. The name noto is to convey the idea that Google’s goal is to see “no more tofu”. Noto has multiple styles and weights, and is freely available to all. The comprehensive set of fonts and tools used in our development is available in our GitHub repositories.” -Google Noto

2. SOURCE HAN SANS (from GitHub) »

“Source Han Sans is an open source Pan-CJK typeface whose OpenType/CFF fonts and CID-based sources are covered under the terms of the SIL Open Font License, Version 1.1 (also see the LICENSE and FAQ). Here you will find the ready-to-install OpenType/CFF font resources, as individual font resources or grouped together in downloadable ZIP files. The CID-based sources are available in the master branch. Those who are unfamiliar with GitHub are encouraged to reference the official Source Han download guide, which is provided in English, Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese.” -GitHub

My suggestion

I suggest the Source Han Sans if you are doing ASIAN translations — that’s the font I have used most of the times. But of course use the font that is the most relevant for you.

I’m not gonna tell you how to install or use the fonts overall, because I assume that you can do that by yourself. Maybe you are just searching for good fonts what to use when doing translations — and you don’t hopefully have to search anymore after seeing this video. Good luck!

Hope these fonts helps you!
