Windows® 7 Language Support
The global features of Windows 7 are common across the system ranging from low levels factors like in NTFS File names to such high-level factors like the selection of backgrounds and themes. We will describe some certain features which are internally critical for proper support of the world's many languages and cultures.
Language and writing are at the heart of any culture and thus support for fonts in Windows 7 language is necessary to support global users. Windows 7 language significantly increases both the quality and range of fonts. There are fifty new fonts in Windows 7.
In addition to new fonts, Microsoft has also enhanced many of the existing Fonts in Windows 7. For example: 2,000 glyphs have been added to Consolas, Calibri, Cambria Bold and Cambria Math. Most of the dramatic enhancements have been done to the non-Latin scripts. For example, Windows 7 does a much better job in the placement of vowel marks and rendering the common Lam-Alef ligature in Arabic.
Because of backwards compatibility issues, changes to fonts are always difficult. Therefore, you must run extensive verification tests against the changes to ensure the font metrics and other tables are unchanged, whenever you change a font. The font team worked closely with the international application compatibility team to ensure that changes they made did not affect the order of glyphs within the font, thus providing backward compatibility.
Font Control Panel
Windows 7 has so many new and expanded fonts; the OS also lets users manage their fonts more easily.
The most interesting change in Windows 7 language and writing is that the font icons are much more revealing about the appearance of the font. The style of the icon and that of font resemble each other. The icon content gives a hint as to the glyph repertory of the font. To see how non-Latin fonts are designed, they show typical glyphs from the script for the font. Another minute change is that some font icons are faded to indicate the user that fonts that are installed, but hidden. In Windows 7, the hidden fonts will not show by default in the ribbon and font dialogs. Users can now tune the fonts that they use regularly by using the font control panel. In Windows 7 Language and Writing, users with the Japanese input method installed will see only the Japanese fonts, whereas users with English and French input locales will see only the Latin fonts.
Now, Windows 7 users can see much more information about the font. Users can also sort fonts by style and information about the creator of the font, even if fonts are hidden. Font information files generally contain the information in the design language of the font. For e.g., a Spanish font might contain information in Spanish language only.
