New font to be adopted 406

Sep 07, 2019

On 1 October 2019, Myanmar hopes to begin its migration from its use of the nationally developed Zawgyi computer font to the adoption of a unified system that conforms to the international standard called Unicode, Global Voices reported.

Major stakeholders such as mobile service providers, media and content producers, civil society organizations, and developers from the tech community have been told by the government to prepare measures for the adoption of the Unicode. All government ministries have already fully migrated to Unicode in April 2019.

Despite the convenience of using the popular local Zawgyi font, it is not compatible with new information technologies.
