If you work with fonts then font conversion is a regular task. Sometimes you need a truetype font converter, sometimes a pc mac font converter. Occasionally you’ll need to convert pfm to ttf or otf to ttf. Transtype handles all these conversions and many more.
If you’re doing only occasional font conversion and your workflow doesn’t justify having TransType Pro on your desktop, then TransType Pro online is the way to go. The online version has all the same features as the desktop. It even has the same interface. But the cost is only a fraction.
Fontlab has teamed up with Roozz to create a quick and easy way for the casual font user to access the power of TransType Pro. You just:
- Sign up for a Roozz account and download their plugin.
- Add money to your Roozz account.
- Start running TransType Pro.
Right now Roozz has only a Windows plugin, so we’re limited. But by next year they hope to have a Mac plugin too. The plugin works in any browser, so there is no limitation there.
Once you’re on board you get to use TransType Pro for 24 hours to do whatever you want. You can convert fonts as many times as you want on as many fonts as you want. This is the fonts converter for the rest of us!
