Welcome to GlyphWiki!

GlyphWiki is a wiki where minchō-style hanzi glyphs (Chinese characters, kanji, hanja, chu Nom, Sawndip, etc.) can be added, managed, and shared by anybody.

Normally the management of a font and every hanzi is tedious, but on GlyphWiki hanzi can be easily designed and independently managed one-by-one. In addition, glyphs can be collected and made into a font that can be immediately shared.

Anyone can manage glyphs, and anyone can use registered glyphs freely. You can add the glyphs you need, combine them with existing data, and gather them into a font. Currently over 450,000 hanzi are registered (differently-named but visually identical glyphs are counted separately; counted together the number is 250,000 strong. For details consult the glyph registration data(GlyphWiki:登録グリフ情報)).

Do you know of any gaiji or variant characters? Feel free to add it; registering for and using GlyphWiki is free. You can also create data that only you can edit (the registered data can be freely used; viewing and usage by other parties cannot be restricted). Regardless of whether you are an individual or a corporation, anyone can use GlyphWiki.

Tutorials

For those using GlyphWiki for the first time, please see the below tutorials.

You can also do the following at GlyphWiki. Tutorial pages are prepared for each one.

Try it out

Use sandbox to experiment with editing glyphs. For experimenting with groups, Group:test is available. They are all for testing use, so overwriting things is fine. It's simple, give it a try!

The data and documents registered, as well as the usage of fonts generated is free. You are welcome to contribute new data. However, so as to not inhibit the free usage of the data, intellectual rights are transferred from you to GlyphWiki, and you agree not to exercise moral rights over the data.
