A Word 2007 addin which helps you write Ancient Greek Unicode texts
and convert between different arbitrary encodings.
Theuth is essentially a text converter, especially useful when you are dealing with
Greek text written using a non-standard Ancient Greek font: even if
Unicode is widespread,
several authors still use such fonts, especially on Mac platforms (e.g. SuperGreek, Graeca,
etc.). This of course is a problem when you have to collect documents from different sources
and convert such arbitrarily encoded text into a standard Unicode text, or vice-versa.
Theuth was designed to automate this conversion in any direction, using a heuristic converter
and storing the description of each such font in external XML files you can create or edit
You can try an online demo of some of the converters you will find in Theuth

task pane to Word. The top ribbon contains generic functions, while the side task pane
has specialized functions for conversion, Unicode and font glyphs browsing.
- Theuth ribbon: miscellaneous tools and Greek diacritics editing: display character
codes, change fonts, change predefined sets of codes; add and remove diacritics to
Unicode text; insert useful symbols.
- task panes: convert encodings,
browse the most relevant regions of the Unicode
standard, view glyphs and codes of each installed font.
