I am building a webpage for a company that is present in many countries, thats why there will be individual websites for every country. While having no problems with the technical aspects, I am a bit unsure how to approach a specific problem.
The brand's styleguide is written rather open and general, they haven't specified any special font. All they care about is a consistent look across the web.
Because of that, I would love to use the font they have been using for years in all their campaigns and on the web, but unfortunately there are some missing glyphs that are quite essential. There is no complete version of that font – it was designed that way, I can't do anything about it.
While doing some research, I only found a surprisingly small number of fonts that have a nice amount of widths and styles and that have enough glyphs to support any (western) language. So basically I am a bit stuck right now – do you think its ok for the user experience to use different but similar fonts for different languages?
