Writing Unicode in pdfLatex [closed]

It should be something like

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[spanish]{babel}
\usepackage{CJKutf8}
\begin{document}
\begin{CJK}{UTF8}{megafont}
τέχνη (ΤΕΧΝΗ - technē)
\end{CJK}
\end{document}


I want to write the whole document in UTF8 not just a word like in this question.

Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

• Do you have a question? – cfr Feb 13 '15 at 23:42
• how to make that code work – Arturo Feb 13 '15 at 23:44
• If you want to use all of the more than 60.000 unicode symbols the answer is: with a lot work. In this case you should better use xelatex or lualatex. If you only want to use specific unicode range you should tell which one (and perhaps again consider to use xelatex or lualatex). – Ulrike Fischer Feb 14 '15 at 11:03
• The question has an accepted answer, but I still don't understand what the question is. Partly because there is no question asked, but also because I don't understand what this has to do with unicode. This question is therefore unlikely to help future visitors, so I am voting to close. – Sverre Feb 16 '15 at 19:26
• @Arturo Yes, quite doable for many cases but does depend on input and font support in the 8-bit world. You'll need to be more specific, in particular what glyph coverage you need. No one font covers everything even for Unicode engines! – Joseph Wright Feb 16 '15 at 19:47

This is Greek, not Chinese-Japanese-Korean (which is what CJK stands for).

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[greek,spanish]{babel}

\begin{document}

\textgreek{τέχνη}

\end{document}


You can use Latin characters for inputting Greek, but using a well defined translitteration scheme:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[greek,spanish]{babel}

\begin{document}

\textgreek{τέχνη}

{\itshape \textgreek{τέχνη}} (\textgreek{ΤΕΧΝΗ} - \textgreek{t'eqnh})

\end{document}


See the documentation of cbgreek for the complete scheme:

• This doesn't work {\itshape \textgreek{τέχνη}} (ΤΕΧΝΗ - \textgreek{technē}) – Arturo Feb 16 '15 at 15:08
• @Arturo If you need a full font family for Greek writing (italics, bold, etc.) for a large amount of Greek text, it would probably be much simpler to use xelatex or lualatex with a Unicode Greek font. – musarithmia Feb 16 '15 at 15:44
• the LaTeX wikibook compiles with pdflatex and I want to know how. – Arturo Feb 16 '15 at 15:46
• @Arturo This compiles perfectly with pdflatex on TeX Live 2014 (or 2013). Update your TeX distribution. – egreg Feb 16 '15 at 17:04
• what do you mean with "this" τέχνη or {\itshape \textgreek{τέχνη}} (ΤΕΧΝΗ - \textgreek{technē})? – Arturo Feb 16 '15 at 18:23
