Unicode® Technical Site

Welcome to the Unicode Technical Site. This is the home of all the technical specifications maintained by the Unicode Consortium. This is also where the various technical committees engage in their work and keep all their meeting records.

On this technical site, you can find a detailed glossary of Unicode terminology, an extensive technical FAQ, and many other resources that you can explore to find out more about the Unicode Standard and all the other standards developed and maintained by the Unicode Consortium.

The Unicode Consortium also hosts a number of other technical projects related to character encoding, registries, and other special projects.

You can drill down to find all the details about ongoing work for emoji, for the Common Locale Data Repository (CLDR), and for the International Components for Unicode (ICU), all of which are widely implemented today throughout the IT industry.
