What is Unicode and why is it important?

Unicode is a universal computing standard for working with texts in all of the world's writing systems. When you use Unicode, you ...

  • make the text easily available to users around the world on any platform and software environment
  • ensure that your text will also be useable in future implementations
  • allow your text to be indexable by search engines and other systems
  • guarantee compatibility between your project and other projects.

Who are we?

The Slavonic Computing Initiative brings together volunteers who are interested in Church Slavonic and dedicated to the philosophy of standards compliance and free and open source software. The project depends entirely on the work of volunteers like you. We do not earn any money in the form of license fees or grants. The project is not affiliated with or endorsed by the Russian Orthodox Church, or any other ecclesiastic, academic or governmental organization.
