Downloading Source Han Serif

Source Han Serif is an open source Pan-CJK typeface whose OpenType/CFF fonts and CID-based sources are covered under the terms of the SIL Open Font License, Version 1.1 (also see the LICENSE and FAQ). Here you will find the ready-to-install OpenType/CFF font resources, as individual font resources or grouped together in downloadable ZIP files. The CID-based sources are available in the master branch. Those who are unfamiliar with GitHub are encouraged to reference the official Source Han download guide, which is provided in English, Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese.

Super OTC

Select this deployment format if you want all languages and all weights in a single and easy-to-manage font resource. Changing languages is accomplished by either selecting the font of the desired language or by language-tagging the text. A limited number of apps support language tagging and the corresponding OpenType 'locl' (Localized Forms) GSUB feature, such as Adobe InDesign CC and modern browsers.

Super OTC Part 1 (78,643,200 bytes) + Super OTC Part 2 (52,889,336 bytes)

The ZIP file for the Super OTC has been necessarily split into two parts, due to GitHub's 100MB file size limit. Unfortunately, the built-in Archive Utility app of macOS does not support split ZIP files, and we therefore recommend that you download and install the Unarchiver app. To unzip, either drag the Part 2 file (the one with the ".zip" filename extension, and named SourceHanSerif.ttc.zip) onto the Unarchiver app, or use Control-Click to open it by specifying that app (after installing the Unarchiver app, you may also be able to simply double-click the Part 2 file). Either of these actions will combine the two parts and unzip them. For Windows, select the Part 2 file, then use the "Extract All" context menu to combine the two parts and unzip them.

Special Note: This deployment format requires macOS (OS X) Version 10.8 (aka Mountain Lion) or later, iOS 7 or later, Windows 10 Version 1703 (aka Creators Update) or later, a flavor of Linux that uses fontconfig and FreeType Version 2.5.0.1 or greater, or Adobe CS6 apps or later.

OTCs

Select this deployment format if you want all languages and some weights, or if your environment does not support the Super OTC. Changing languages is accomplished the same way as the Super OTC. If you need specific weights, download individual font resources from the OTC folder, otherwise click both of the links below:

ExtraLight + Light + Regular + Medium & SemiBold + Bold + Heavy

Special Note: This deployment format requires macOS (OS X) Version 10.8 (aka Mountain Lion) or later, iOS 7 or later, Windows 10 Version 1607 (aka Anniversary Update) or later, a flavor of Linux that uses fontconfig and FreeType Version 2.5.0.1 or greater, or Adobe CS6 apps or later.

Language-specific OTFs

Select this deployment format if you prefer to use only one language, but also want full character coverage or the ability to language-tag text to use glyphs that are appropriate for the other languages (like the Super OTC and OTCs, this requires an app that supports language tagging and the OpenType 'locl' GSUB feature). If you need only specific weights, download individual font resources from the OTF folder, otherwise click on the appropriate links below:

Simplified Chinese (简体中文): ExtraLight + Light + Regular + Medium & SemiBold + Bold + Heavy

Traditional Chinese (繁體中文): ExtraLight + Light + Regular + Medium & SemiBold + Bold + Heavy

Japanese (日本語): ExtraLight + Light + Regular + Medium & SemiBold + Bold + Heavy

Korean (한국어): ExtraLight + Light + Regular + Medium & SemiBold + Bold + Heavy

Region-specific Subset OTFs

Select this deployment format if you need only the glyphs for characters for a particular region, or if you are not sure which deployment format to choose.

Each ZIP file contains seven font resources, one for each of the seven weights. If you need specific weights, download individual font resources from the SubsetOTF folder, otherwise click on the appropriate links below:

China (中国), Taiwan (臺灣), Japan (日本), Korea (한국)
