Fonts.com serves a global audience. As such, we feel it’s important that our website ‘speaks’ more than just English. Today, you may have noticed the addition of two new languages to Fonts.com: German and Japanese. Both are among the most commonly spoken languages of our customer base and represent two of our fastest growing customer segments.

The next time you visit Fonts.com, if the language preference of your browser is set to German or Japanese, you will automatically be redirected to the German or Japanese version of the site. You can also use the language dropdown menu in the site’s upper right hand navigation to manually switch between languages. While the entire site has not yet been translated, just about everything you need  to browse fonts, purchase fonts or use our Fonts.com Web Fonts service is available in both German and Japanese. This includes the Fonts.com home page, the typeface family and product pages, the browse fonts pages, the Web fonts homepage, the Manage Web fonts page and the shopping cart. Content that has not yet been translated remains available in English, even when surfing in other languages.

Over the coming weeks, we’ll continue to roll out many of the content pages in German and Japanese. If you’re wondering if additional languages will be added down the road, well, we’re considering that, too. For now, we invite our German and Japanese speaking friends to explore Fonts.com in their native language. We hope you enjoy this enhancement. But if you notice something doesn’t look quite right, please let us know.

While much of our time goes to releasing and optimizing our collection of Web fonts, we’re always working hard to add new features to the Fonts.com Web Fonts portal. Today, we’re happy to unveil a couple of our most requested features: annual subscriptions and German language support.

Our new annual subscriptions are perfect for those who are no longer just experimenting with Web fonts and are ready to take the leap. Choosing an annual subscription will reduce the frequency of billing for you and your clients while providing a nice price break. An annual subscription is just over eight percent less expensive than a year’s worth of 30-day subscriptions.

You may have also noticed that Fonts.com Web Fonts now speaks Deutsch. German is the most preferred language of our users (behind English) so this should come as good news to our friends in Germany, Switzerland and other parts of the world. The site will automatically display in English or German based on the language preference in your browser. You can also manually specify the language or toggle between languages by clicking the name of the language displayed in the right hand side of the navigation. Fonts.com Web Fonts German Home Page
