I am using tccv document class in order to create my cv in Greek. For this reason I mainly have two questions: (1) is it possible to print my name in Greek but leave "curriculum vitae" in English; (2) how can I change the fonts?

Here is MWE:



\part{\selectlanguage{greek} Nicola Fontana} 

\section{Work experience}



Thanks in advance!

PS: I here you can find the document class

  • (1) Yes. (2) It depends. Best of luck! – cfr Jul 16 '15 at 21:46
  • How can I solve my 1st problem? '\setlanguage{greek}' command does not seem to work in that case – Yorgos Jul 16 '15 at 21:52
  • Please post a Minimum Working Example (MWE) i.e. a small document we can compile which to reproduce the problem. \documentclass... \end{document}. Right now, there is very little information in your question at all. Also, please state which engine you are using if your code does not make that obvious. – cfr Jul 16 '15 at 22:04

I have taken one of the examples in the ZIP file, changing just the name to one of a hero of Greek independence. I left the rest unchanged, for lack of knowledge of Greek.

You can change font, provided you use one that supports Greek, I used GFS Artemisia.

I also changed the nonsensical Zapf Chancery for “Curriculum Vitae”.


% Why on earth using Zapf Chancery? Whoever receives the
% CV will laugh at it.


\part[\textlatin{Curriculum Vitae}]{Θεόδωρος Κολοκοτρώνης}

\section{Work experience}


\item{July 2007 -- Present}
     {eNTiDi software, Travagliato}

  • How can I change the font of and the color of "curriculum vitae"? I was thinking about the same color with the sections and zapfino lite-one font – Yorgos Jul 16 '15 at 23:35
  • If I use '\selectlanguage{}' for the address, the the output does not fit with the symbol in the box (actually, my address is lower than the respective symbol) – Yorgos Jul 17 '15 at 0:07
