To export a Confluence page written in a language other than English, you need to install the necessary font for that language. This means that you need to upload the font file to Confluence, as described below.

Uploading a Font File to Confluence

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

    • Unix users:All font files in Unix are stored in:

    • Microsoft True Type core fonts such as Verdana can be downloaded from this page:
  2. Copy the font file into a temporary folder, for example a folder on your desktop.
  3. Go to the 'PDF Export Language Support' screen in the Confluence Administration Console and upload the file you copied in step 2.
  4. Click Install.


  • The only font files supported are true type fonts and true type collections. The accepted file extensions are *.ttf and *.ttc.
  • 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 won't 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 - Getting issue details... STATUS .
