If I want a DIN font style, I usually use either:

DIN17SBOP-Regular or DIN17

enter image description here

However neither of these have Greek characters. Is anyone aware of one?


Parachute Fonts' DIN supports Greek, and FF DIN "partly supports Greek". The main difference you'll see is in the italics. PF DIN uses a true italic with a handwritten feel, FF DIN has a sloped roman oblique.

  • Thanks for this, I wasn't aware of these families. I was after something that looked a bit more like "classic DIN" these seem to be quite new iterations -- but they could do if I don't find anything else! – Q.P. Mar 15 '20 at 21:49

Seemingly you have got a couple of usable suggestions in another answer. If it happens that you must use freeware you can try a trick. There's a free CAD program which contains a couple of fonts which resemble thin DIN style fonts. After installing the program the font appeared also in other Windows programs.

There's no real Bold nor Italic versions, they are available only in programs which create them mechanically by thickening and slating the regular version.

CAD program: DesignSpark Mechanical

Fonts: SpaceClaim ASME CB and SpaceClaim ISO CB

The glyph list shows this Greek and Coptic section:

  • Thanks for the tip! I'll take a look into this. By the way, since you have such a high rep, do you know why my question has been downvoted? – Q.P. Mar 16 '20 at 3:20
  • Your question isn't a problem in color, layout, creation techniques nor design business., it can be seen as a request for a purchase recommendation. Many of us consider them less interesting or less valuable than things which they see to need trained skills or creative talent. – user287001 Mar 16 '20 at 4:25
  • Eikös tuo saatappi olla ASME fontti ei DIN – joojaa Mar 17 '20 at 9:44
  • Are the stack exchanges not English only? – Q.P. Mar 18 '20 at 0:51
  • @Q.P. OK. I removed my tribal language comment. But I have seen several texts written in other languages than English and even accepted, for ex. javascript, XML and others. – user287001 Mar 18 '20 at 0:58
