Professional Arabic typesetting and translation services

Arabic typesetting by the UK’s premium Arabic typesetting agency. Here are some of our Arabic typesetting (DTP) samples as well as over 60 other languages. Adelphi typesetting has over 20 years of experience in providing Arabic typesetting Services and all our Arabic typesetting is handled in-house and carried out by our own experienced typesetters. We produce all kinds of Arabic printed materials including corporate brochures, packaging, business cards, posters and manuals.

Adelphi’s in-house translation department produces the Arabic translations enabling us to produce the highest quality end product, while keeping costs down.

As Arabic is a right to left language we use InDesign with a special plugin to typeset all of our Arabic. We do have a converter that can convert QuarkXpress to InDesign if needed. Flipping the documents so that they read from back to front with the correct pagination needs to be done. This can cause some problems when the English version has not been designed with this in mind and sometimes requires judgments to be made to make the text and images read correctly while keeping the style required.

We recently typeset a 100 page document, posters and labels in Arabic & English for an event in Oman for the Royal Armouries. Other regular clients for Arabic typesetting are Vidal Sassoon, Toni & Guy, Jaguar Land rover and many others. We also work for international aid agencies such as Amnesty InternationalRefugee ActionUNICEF and the Refugee Council. As well as Arabic, Adelphi also translates and typesets other right to left languages such as Urdu, Farsi, Dari and Pashto etc.

Adelphi has offices in the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States of America (USA).

Arabic typesetting gone wrong

The number of times we get clients trying to typeset their own Arabic and wondering why it looks wrong. That is because the Arabic words have been put through mainstream Western computer programs that display them left-to-right instead of right-to-left and which also separates the words into single letters.

Here is an picture of the Discover Northern Ireland welcome poster with incorrect Arabic:
