CORRECT, FEM

DEF – The assembling of
typographic material such as
type, art, illustrations and
other elements into the final
page format for printing or
incorporating into a printing
plate. This assembling can be
done by hand, machine
(cast), typewriter (strike-on),
or phototypesetting (including
laser and digital typesetting).
Source

OBS – Technically speaking,
typesetting, the assembling
of type matter, comprises
only part of the larger
composition process and
excludes the assembling of
artwork. The terms
\"composition\" and
\"typesetting\", however, are
often considered
synonymous. Furthermore,
the equivalent for both terms
is the same in French. Source

DEF – Ensemble des
opérations ayant pour but de
former, au moyen de
caractères et d\'autres
éléments d\'impression, des
mots, des lignes, des pages.
