Arabic Indesign translations and typesetting

Conversion, translations, character outline, DTP and typesetting

What the Typesetter has to offer for your Arabic typesetting:

Non-Western scripts

The Typesetter specialises in non-Western scripts, such as Arabic. This language is written from right to left and is read starting from the back to the front. The Typesetter turns the reading orientation around and provides a mirror image of the layout so that the target group has a finished article just like the original!

Translating Indesign files

The Typesetter can also supply Arabic translations if these have not already been arranged. As a division within All Translations, we can offer you almost every language at a reasonable price. Your time is precious, and we won’t waste a second!

If you have an Indesign file that needs translating and you need text processing as well, we can offer you a special discount. This option can even save up to 60% of the cost!

Typesetting Indesign files

The Typesetter employs equivalent typefaces for Arabic. Consequently, the result resembles the original text. The layout of your books, brochures, manuals, labels and business cards will look smart and professional!

The Typesetter converts your Arabic Word file and imports it into your Adobe Indesign file. Next, we make an outline format (EPS) from this and insert the Arabic text in the form of an image. This avoids you having the problem of missing fonts!


The Typesetter converts your Arabic (scanned) pdf files and imports it into Indesign and/or Illustrator.
