WASHINGTON, Sept. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is being released by EurAlfabet™:
A unique font designed to aid universal comprehension of all alphabets used in Europe is now available. Intended to give readers of different alphabets phonetic access to previously indecipherable script, "EurAlfabet" is suited especially for business applications in regions where diverse alphabets are in use.
EurAlfabet (for "European Universal Recognition Alphabet") facilitates universal phonetic recognition in all European languages, including English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Russian, Ukrainian, Serbian, Bulgarian, Greek – regardless of which alphabet is used. This is because EurAlfabet phonetically converts letters between the LATIN (e.g., English, French, etc.), CYRILLIC (e.g., Russian, etc.), and GREEK alphabets. All three alphabets are in official use by the European Union.
EurAlfabet is based on "visual phonetic conversion" (VPC), an original concept that corresponding letters in different alphabets can be designed to convey the same phonetic value. For example, the Latin letter "S" is written in Cyrillic as "C" and in Greek as "S" (the familiar "Sigma"). EurAlfabet provides a single letter design that is mentally "heard" by the reader as "ess," so that where an American sees an "S," a Russian looking at the same letter would see a "C." The same VPC principle is applied to all other letters in all three alphabets.
Because readers of the Cyrillic and Greek alphabets generally are more familiar with the Latin alphabet than vice versa, EurAlfabet is particularly useful in parts of Central and Eastern Europe where western speakers of English, French, German, etc., may have difficulty in recognizing the local letters. This has great functionality for electronic applications and for understanding of displays relating to –
According to its purchase license, buyers of EurAlfabet have unlimited rights to use the font in company names, logos, emblems, stationary, signs, and advertising. In addition to standard characters, EurAlfabet provides supplemental symbols, such as accented vowels, the German "Eszett" (ß), and the new sign for the Russian ruble. EurAlfabet is under trademark and design patent protection.
