What's new in the Nitartha-Sambhota 4.0 Tibetan Program?

Nitartha International and the Nitartha-Sambhota software team have released a new upgrade of the Sambhota software package called Sambhota 4.0. This version replaces our earlier version, Sambhota 2.0. We have developed a new set of cursive fonts called Drutsa, Khamdris and Ume and have also added a new Uchen font called Narthang.

Please note that the popular Dedris, Ededris Uchen fonts remain unchanged in the new version. The Sambhota and Wylie keyboards and the Sambhota converter and spell check program have been upgraded to include the new fonts. This enables users to type directly in Ume or to convert Wylie and Asian Classics transliteration directly into Ume.

Take a look at our fonts below: (click on the tabs)

The Ume and Khamdris fonts contain hundreds of character stacks supporting a wide variety of Tibetan-Sanskrit. The Drutsa font has been designed for creating posters, text titles and the like. As a result, it contains a more abbreviated selection of characters. All of the fonts are included in the Sambhota 4.0 package so there is no need to purchase individual fonts.

Wylie, Converter and Spell Checker

The Sambhota keyboards (both Sambhota and Wylie) have been extended to support all the new fonts. These keyboards can be utilized for entering text into Microsoft Word versions 97 and greater. (Note that Sambhota 4.0 does not currently work with 64-bit Word 2010 but does work with 32-bit Word 2010.)

Our Tibetan Converter has been extended to support the new fonts so that Wylie or Asian Classics texts can be converted to Tibetan text using any of the new fonts. The converter also contains the capability to spell check Wylie and Asian Classic texts.
