I’d like to collect the names of the styles within a family in a few languages, other than English.
Globalization is Ok, but having labels in one’s own tongue is Ok, too. Yes, I’m thinking about editing fonts in localized versions this way.
Well then, lets do German as a starter:
- Regular – Normal
- Italic – Kursiv
- Bold – Fett
- Small caps – Kapitälchen
- Light – Leicht
- Thin – Mager
- Medium – Kräftig (?), Viertelfett, ›Buch‹
- Semibold – Halbfett
- Demibold (?) – Dreiviertelfett
- Black – Extrafett
- Outline – Licht
- Script – Schreibschrift
What about Spanish, French, Netherlands, Italian, Polish, Portugese, …, …, ?
