Neue Helvetica World’s language support covers the pan-European area (extended Latin alphabet, Cyrillic and Greek) as well as Arabic, Hebrew, Armenian, Georgian, Thai and Vietnamese. The Cyrillic alphabet contains not only the standard options, but also the complete Unicode block u+0400. In addition, a large number of new global currency symbols have been included such as the Russian ruble, Turkish lira, Indian rupee and Azerbaijani manat.
Neue Helvetica World is offered as OpenType font with TrueType (.ttf) or PostScript CFF (.otf) outlines. The files size are reasonably small, ranging from 140 to 270 KB depending on format and style. The uprights each include 1708 glyphs and the italics have 1285 glyphs (some scripts, such as Arabic, do not have an italic design).
