The following turkish characters do not seem to appear properly: "ğ, ı, ş"

I am using Miktex and my text editor is TeXnicCenter 2.02 Stable.
When I try to typeset the code, the PDF file ends up with question marks "?" in the place of the turkish special characters. Here is my code:

   Merhaba. benim adım Billy. Taniştığımıza memnum oldum.

Result: "Merhaba. benim ad?m Billy. Tani?t???m?za memnum oldum."

  • Your document should work as it is. I can not help with miktex customisation as I use texlive but check that cm-super is installed. (a full set of type 1 versions of the default computer modern fonts) – David Carlisle May 21 '16 at 8:09

The default computer modern doesn't have these glyphs. Add \usepackage{lmodern} or cm-super to your preamble, or install cm-unicode.

  • Perhaps cm-super? – egreg May 21 '16 at 6:41
  • Oh yes! Actually, I didn't install it, because it takes up toomuch space, so I tend to forget it. Thanks for pointing this oversight. – Bernard May 21 '16 at 9:06
  • I have also learn to never forget to refresh the file name database whenever finishing new files installations. – billyandriam May 22 '16 at 0:13
  • You're right, and also ro run updmap.exe from the command line if you install type 1 fonts. – Bernard May 22 '16 at 0:44
