Tibetan Computer Co
Successful company, run by a westerner, located in Kathmandu. Has written Tibetan software (such as a Word-like app) and fonts. "Started in the mid 1980's with the aim of developing high-class Tibetan software for the IBM PC platform. The company developed the first professional Tibetan word-processing package for the DOS environment, called Tibetan! (version 4). The company has now developed a group of products for the Windows environment. Although the company makes Tibetan software for the use of all, its specific aim is to provide the software, fonts, and expertise needed for the preservation and dissemination of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. To that end, the company provides its software and expertise to the various groups doing that work."

The preferred best font for Tibetan. "The major shortcoming of this font is that it only covers Unicode 2.1, and therefore omits the new code ranges introduced up to Unicode 3.2." "Arial Unicode MS is provided with various Microsoft products (e.g. Windows 2000 operating system)."

Tibetan Fonts - Phayul forum
"we talk about protecting our Tibetan language and culture. Many people think that protecting the culture is only keeping many books and wearing old dress. That is wrong, there are other ways to protect culture and language. Let me tell you one. It's that we must create a Tibetan font for cell phones."

Tibetan Unicode fonts for Windows computers
"Tibetan Unicode is not as nice looking as TibetanUchen, but TibetanUchen has several errors in it which mar its usefulness. TCRC Youtso Unicode is a very nice font and you will probably find it the most useful of the three."
