I live in Sweden, but I am not Swedish. You can send me a message in English, Icelandic, Faroese, or Scandinavian but I will reply in English or bad Swedish.
If you want a translation of anything Nordic on this blog (except Finnish/Greenlandic), just send a message asking about it and I'll translate it, or at least the gist/important info, to English for you.
Edit: Version 1.5! Please make sure you have the new version.
Here is the font and keyboard layout! Unfortunately I can’t currently make a Windows keyboard layout, so someone will have to create one and give it to me so I can include it in the ZIP. I have also included the (Icelandic and Scandinavian) references I used to make it. You can even embed the font into your website or tumblr layout, so anyone who goes there even if they don’t have it installed, will see the runes.
My wife requested I make a “modern runic alphabet” that you can use with today’s language, so here it is. We ourselves will use it in future projects and websites.
I “linked” the runes to regular letters instead of the real runic Unicode numbers (which would have shown up as boxes if you didn’t have the runic characters installed) because I already experienced a time where I logged out of my computer and logged back in and the Modern Runic layout was on. If they hadn’t been linked to regular keys, I wouldn’t have been able to type in my password and I would have been stuck. Also keyboard shortcuts wouldn’t work. However, the argument has been made that if someone sees boxes they will much more likely install the font, whereas if they see like above they won’t bother unless they are specifically interested in runes. Feel free to make the same keyboard layout that mostly links to the Unicode runes, then I will include that with these files also if you give it to me.
