Why Unicode?[မႄးထတ်းငဝ်ႈငႃႇ]

Unicode is a standard that defines how text should be saved into data and how it is read and written. Almost every script in the world, including Burmese, is defined in the Unicode Standard. Carefully designed by experts of the field around the world, this international standard is supported by virtually all the latest platforms--not only in major operating systems like Windows, Mac, and Linux but also in OSes of mobile phones and many electronic devices. The Unicode Standard is the most well-known encoding scheme to support the largest number of scripts/languages in a single page of code. More information is available at Unicode.org. See discussion on Unicode usage in Wikipedia. All Wikipedias, including the English language Wikipedia, use Unicode as it is Wikimedia Foundation policy.

Why use Unicode?[မႄးထတ်းငဝ်ႈငႃႇ]

  • The fonts necessary to view and edit are freely available.
  • Search is seamless with Unicode.
  • Unicode makes it extremely easy to translate the Wikipedia's interface.
  • Unicode fonts support 11 languages that use the Myanmar script:
    • Burmese
    • 2 liturgical languages: Pali and Sanskrit
    • 8 minority languages: Mon, Shan, Kayah, four Karen languages and Rumai Palaung
