Sorry to bring this topic from the grave, but I wanted to ask a question based on dhn’s post...

Now that prosilver is released and we can see the fonts actually used for the localization buttons...
dhn wrote: If I recall correctly, the current buttons are simply Arial. The only object using Triplex is the logo. The new style will also use freely available fonts for the buttons to make internationalisation quick, cheap, and easy.
SHS` noted to us that the buttons are using Helvetica Neue, which is a commercial font.
How will the international community (i.e. translators) be able to translate the buttons in their own language and style as the default prosilver? (besides purchasing the Helvetica Neue font.

Or, is the phpBB team anticipating that the translators will all have to make that purchase?

They will use their Macs, since Helvetica Neue is provided with Mac OS X :mrgreen:

They will do exactly as they have done for years - fake it by using another similar font if they cannot afford to purchase it.

This is nothing new to the styling community. For example, for years now people have faked Triplex Bold (the commercial font used in the phpBB2.0 logo) by applying a faux bold modifier to Arial Bold.

You do not need the exact same font to create your own style.
