Chinese Font

Official authorized Chinese(Simplified Chinese) bitmap font

On January 1st, 2001, the Chinese government established a new Chinese character code standard: GB18030. Any information-based product that displays Chinese characters must conform to this standard.
This is an iron-clad rule in the Chinese market: you cannot use any bitmap font that is not authorized by the Chinese government. Any product equipped with unauthorized fonts will be subject to mandatory adjustments. If a company ignores this rule, the product may be prohibited from sale in China.
LIM's Chinese bitmap font is fully authorized and used by many clients on PDAs, printers, PC peripheral devices and industrial machinery.
We recommend you try our officially sanctioned Chinese bitmap font for your product.
