I'm trying to create a pdf that contains both English and Greek. But the two different languages appear in different fonts. Can someone tell me why?

This is my code:

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{report} 
\usepackage[utf8x]{inputenc} 
\newcommand{\lt}{\latintext} 
\newcommand{\gt}{\greektext}
\usepackage[english,greek]{babel}
\usepackage{graphicx}

\begin{document} 

\newcommand{\resetfont}{\renewcommand{\familydefault}{put}\normalfont}
\begin{center}
\resetfont
\includegraphics[scale=0.25]{unipi_logo.jpg}\\
\Large 
ΔΙΑΧΕΙΡΙΣΗ ΓΝΩΣΗΣ \\[0.5in]

\Large ΕΡΕΥΝΩΝΤΑΣ ΤΟΝ ΡΟΛΟ ΤΩΝ ΔΙΑΡΘΡΩΤΙΚΩΝ ΚΕΝΩΝ ΣΤΗΝ ΜΑΘΗΣΗ: ΜΙΑ ΕΜΠΕΙΡΙΚΗ ΕΡΕΥΝΑ ΤΩΝ ΣΟΥΗΔΙΚΩΝ ΦΑΡΜΑΚΕΙΩΝ\\[0.5in] 

\lt
Fausto Di Vincenzo, Jens Hemphala, Mats Magnusson, Daniele Mascia 
\end{center}
\end{document}

And this is what I get: enter image description here

    There is no Greek font corresponding to put (that is Utopia). – egreg Jan 30 '14 at 20:42
  • How can I find out what fonts can write both in English and Greek? – Shevliaskovic Jan 30 '14 at 20:42
  • It depends on what TeX distribution you have. There are several good Greek fonts in a full distribution. By the way your \resetfont command is not what I'd use. – egreg Jan 30 '14 at 21:21
  • How can I see which one I have? (I'm a total beginner, I have no idea) – Shevliaskovic Jan 30 '14 at 21:22

    Just don't try changing fonts, then. Use the default and don't worry: that's the last of your problems. Think first to having the text in good shape. – egreg Jan 30 '14 at 21:23

If you don't use the (dubiously defined) command \resetfont, you get fonts compatible with each other:

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{report}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[english,greek]{babel}

\begin{document}

\begin{center}
\Large
ΔΙΑΧΕΙΡΙΣΗ ΓΝΩΣΗΣ \\[0.5in] % Why 0.5in?

ΕΡΕΥΝΩΝΤΑΣ ΤΟΝ ΡΟΛΟ ΤΩΝ ΔΙΑΡΘΡΩΤΙΚΩΝ ΚΕΝΩΝ ΣΤΗΝ ΜΑΘΗΣΗ:
ΜΙΑ ΕΜΠΕΙΡΙΚΗ ΕΡΕΥΝΑ ΤΩΝ ΣΟΥΗΔΙΚΩΝ ΦΑΡΜΑΚΕΙΩΝ\\[0.5in]

\textlatin{Fausto Di Vincenzo, Jens Hemphala, Mats Magnusson, Daniele Mascia}
\end{center}
\end{document}

(I removed the logo that I don't have.)

If you add \usepackage[default]{gfsbodoni} you get the following

enter image description here

This is what you get with \usepackage{gfsdidot}:

enter image description here

Finally, here's a version that uses Baskervald and GFS Baskerville:

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{report}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[english,greek]{babel}

\usepackage{baskervald}
\usepackage{gfsbaskerville}
\usepackage{substitutefont}
\substitutefont{LGR}{\rmdefault}{gfsbaskerville}

\begin{document}


\begin{center}
\Large
ΔΙΑΧΕΙΡΙΣΗ ΓΝΩΣΗΣ \\[0.5in] % Why 0.5in?

ΕΡΕΥΝΩΝΤΑΣ ΤΟΝ ΡΟΛΟ ΤΩΝ ΔΙΑΡΘΡΩΤΙΚΩΝ ΚΕΝΩΝ ΣΤΗΝ ΜΑΘΗΣΗ:
ΜΙΑ ΕΜΠΕΙΡΙΚΗ ΕΡΕΥΝΑ ΤΩΝ ΣΟΥΗΔΙΚΩΝ ΦΑΡΜΑΚΕΙΩΝ\\[0.5in]

\textlatin{Fausto Di Vincenzo, Jens Hemphala, Mats Magnusson, Daniele Mascia}
\end{center}
\end{document}

enter image description here

However, the GFS Baskerville font is slanted, so it may be not good as the main text font. Instead of \usepackage{baskervald} you can try \usepackage{librebaskerville}.

Here’s a xelatex variant using the Linux Libertine/Biolinum fonts and a real title page.

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{scrreprt} 
\usepackage{polyglossia}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\setmainfont{Linux Libertine}
\setsansfont{Linux Biolinum}

\begin{document} 

\titlehead{\centering\includegraphics[scale=0.25]{unipi_logo.jpg}}
\subject{\MakeUppercase{Διαχείριση Γνώσης}}
\title{\MakeUppercase{Ερευνωντασ τον ρολο των διαρθρωτικων κενων στην μαθηση}}
\subtitle{\MakeUppercase{Μια εμπειρικη ερευνα των Σουηδικων φαρμακειων}}
\author{Fausto Di Vincenzo \and Jens Hemphala \and Mats Magnusson \and Daniele Mascia}
\date{}

\maketitle

\end{document}
