This question might sound like very simple but trust me I am really frustrated with the situation and not getting any positive direction towards solution. Someone who has worked for multilingual challenges would probably understand the pain.
Why I want to use Noto family (basically 3-4 fonts from this family): My customer website is in different languages (Japanese, Chinese, Korian, English + few more). Currently those are in any random (and ugly) fonts. Only Noto (I could find) which will enable consistency and better typography across websites. Now, we strictly don't want to use any random font for localization. Best part is Google allows usage of this font being in Apache licence.
Whats the problem
- We are not sure whether the font will have any browser dependency (want it to be running in IE 7 also)
- Each language font is approx. 15 mb, so there is no online tool which can convert this font for web usage :(
- Will this font be used even through firewall an other restrictions at customer system
- I have not seen any major brands/websites using this font. Just wondering why! Is there any concern regarding its web usage.
If any one has actually experienced this type of situation, any pointers for the font usage will be great.
