Please copy the latest versions of following font files from Windows machine into a separate folder inside Linux machine:

  • Calibri
  • MS Gothic
  • Microsoft JhengHei
  • Malgun Gothic
  • Leelawadee UI

And then try running the following code of latest 21.7 version of Aspose.Words for Java:

Document doc = new Document("Multilingual template.docx");

FontSettings fontSettings = new FontSettings();
addFontFolder(fontSettings, "path to your custom fonts folder/");


private static void addFontFolder(FontSettings fontSettings, String folder)
    FontSourceBase[] fontSourceBases = fontSettings.getFontsSources();
    FontSourceBase[] newFontSourceBases = new FontSourceBase[fontSourceBases.length + 1];
    System.arraycopy(fontSourceBases, 0, newFontSourceBases, 0, fontSourceBases.length);
    newFontSourceBases[newFontSourceBases.length - 1] = new FolderFontSource(folder, true);

Thank you so much, its working fine.
