Create a PDF in Another Language

To export a Confluence page written in a language other than English, you'll need the necessary font for that language. 

Upload a Font File to Confluence

  1. Find the appropriate font file:
    • Windows users:All font files in Windows are stored in a directory called:

      C:\WINDOWS\Fonts
    • Unix users:All font files in Unix are stored in:

      /usr/share/fonts
    • Microsoft True Type core fonts such as Verdana can be downloaded from this page: http://corefonts.sourceforge.net/
  2. Copy the font file into a temporary folder, for example a folder on your desktop.
  3. Choose the cog icon , then choose General Configuration under Confluence Administration

     then choose PDF Export Language Support.

  4. Upload the file you copied in step 2.
  5. Choose Install.

Notes

  • The only font files supported are true type fonts and true type collections. The accepted file extensions are *.ttf and *.ttc.
  • Confluence can only store one font file at any one time. Please create a collection to install more than one *.ttf files.
  • We recommend that you use Unicode font Verdana for correct character encoding and exporting to PDF.
  • If the font file size is bigger than your current attachment size limit, you will not be able to upload it. Please increase the attachment size limit temporarily and re-upload again. An improvement of the error messaging is tracked at  CONF-24706 Resolved

  • To make use of an installed font in your PDF Export style sheet (CSS) refer to it by the font-family ConfluenceInstalledFont.
