Dear all,
I hope you are doing very well.

I was approached by a client for translating a job into Arabic. The client asked me the following:

"Could you return us the translation in with the fonts transformed to curves (letter contours) so that we can process your translation in InDesign ?"

Could you help me understand how to do it, or rather what it may possibly be?

Thank you very much for your consideration and time.

Ali Al-awadi

InDesign or Illustartor Nov 26, 2007

Hi Ali,

For doing this you will need a DTP Software, like InDesign or Illustartor from Adobe.

They have the feature to convert text into outlines and saved as EPS. More like a high resolution image of the text.

The core idea Nov 29, 2007

Dear Ali,

I may input that the core idea of different wording you may find (curves, outline...etc) is to convert text to vector shapes using a special software such as Adobe Illustrator, Corel...etc.

Kind regards
