Apples design choices are not top notch anymore, some might say they are a bit bland. So why not update your system font with this free package.

Free Open Source Crowdsourced translation service

I talked about crowdsourcing translations already a couple of times. Along with the Google Tool, and Getlocalized I found this service which is free for open source projects. Since I open source my projects I will definitely try this service out, as it looks quite established.

Animated Fonts, the next frontier

Typography is a beast - everyone uses fonts, they are integral part of every operating system and application, and still in 2012 the art of making type look good is in the hand of the creator. And here are now animated fonts to make it even harder beyond the new challenges that web fonts bring. Animated fonts make fonts even stronger in character and make them express a style and a story.

This will make it difficult to use these fonts beyond the classic script fonts or as a demo. One of these demos is Typogami. I think zou can just use it for a documentary about origami - at least in the animated form, but still - great idea and execution.

Download it for free on their Facebook page and read more about the font following the link.

Translation Software used to be expensive, not anymore

Many firms operate internationally and need translations not just for their documents, but also for their apps, websites, documentation etc. New tools from Google and other small firms help small business for their basic translation needs. The trickiest part of translations are industry specific translations that a firm want to keep consistent. This is where Translation Memories come into place.

This software keeps track of the translations and automates the translation of recurring text paragraphs and words. Useful and expensive (talk about 100.000s of Dollars).

Not all firms want or can spend this kind of money. The tools from Google and services like getlocalization.com can help here. They are not super easy to use and lack sometimes some functionality (Google for example doesn't support sharing the document through an URL, or updating a current file), but they are a great tool anyways because they have built in translation memories.

Everybody loves fresh free fonts - if they are high quality

Now what does high quality mean? For me it means rich character set for international use, suitable for print and web and that they have something that makes them individual. Also check out their older posts, totally worth it.

Layered font for old style appeal

I like this concept of creating a separate font for each style element. It helps to achieve a sophisticated look with a couple of easy steps. Nice - and the outline is available for free, almost you pay with a tweet.

Contemporary free display font Archive

I like the all caps display font called Archive because it has a great balance in weight, modern elements and readability. As seen in the examples it works great if you age it, but I think it might show it's best use as a logo font for a tech startup that doesn't want to get lost in the see of soft shapes and script fonts.
