Lepcha, or Róng, is a unique minority script used in parts of India, Nepal and Bhutan. Although it shares some features with other Indic scripts, it also possesses some of its own unique challenges.

Lepcha Font Sample Text

As you can see in the sample above, Lepcha uses lots of special marks and requires ligatures as well as graphic transposition and reordering in order to create meaningful Lepcha text. The font supplied with the Lepcha Language Kit takes care of all these things for you.

We’d love to hear from people or organizations who are working with Lepchas or the Lepcha language and we’re happy to make our Unicode support available free of charge to anyone helping to preserve the Lepcha language and heritage.

Although we normally create our own fonts for all of our products, the Lepcha Language Kit will hopefully include a third-party font created by Jason Glavy (this is the font depicted above). We’ve adapted the Unicode encoding and added the intelligence to display the script properly but the outlines were created by Jason.
