Denjong Tibtype owes its name to Denjong འབྲས་ལྗོངས། (Sikkim) because this software was first officially distributed in Gangtok.

It allows writing in Tibetan script including a few additional letters used in some contemporary Tibetic languages as well as letters used in Sanskrit mantras.

TibType is a compound word: Tibetan and Type, which yields: Tibetan typing system.

Bo (the symbol on the keyboard) is a two-letter code representing the Tibetan language according to ISO 639-1- ISO: International Organization for Standardization.

This keyboard required a lot of research. It aims to adapt the Tibetan script to new technologies and standardize it according to the Unicode system.

The installation of the keyboard on your computer is user friendly on Windows Vista and Windows 7. Just download it and run it.

For Windows XP, you will also require:

  2. Setting up Windows for this kind of complex script, following the instructions on Digital Tibetan.
