A cross-platform and easy-to-use Mac OS X and Windows application for quickly batch-converting between multiple font formats for both OS X and PC
TransType Pro is a cross-platform and user-friendly application that enables you to convert between various fonts such as OpenType, PostScript Type 1, TrueType and Multiple Master with ease and speed.
Fast and convenient multi-platform font converter
You can also use TransType Pro to convert between formats used on OS X machines and computers running Microsoft’s Windows OS. Furthermore, what makes TransType Pro a high-quality product is that it makes it quick to efficiently convert fonts with Roman and non-Roman encoding.
In addition, you will be able to select both the source and the destination encoding while converting fonts in any direction (Mac to PC, PC to Mac, OpenType to TrueType and so on).
Practical and handy batch font conversion and bitmap font generator capabilities
What’s more, TransType Pro enables users to generate bitmap fonts when converting to Type 1 format for the Mac. You can also convert multiple master Type 1 fonts into one or more master Type 1 fonts.
The list of features is extended by the ability to preview fonts which are not installed in your Mac's system. Also, the application can convert from the VFB format to OpenType, TrueType and Type 1.
Inbuilt support for font processing Python scripting based automation
Advanced users can also use TransType Pro to process the converted fonts using Python macro scripts. To use this feature, the MacPython interpreter must be installed.
As an added bonus, TransType Pro can also unarchive and obtain fonts from SIT archives in case you have the Stuffit application on your Mac's system.
What is more, in the process of converting fonts, you can use TransType Pro to further edit their names, process multiple fonts at the same time, as well as designate styles with ease and speed.
Lightning fast and trustworthy font converter and organizer for the Mac
All things considered, TransType Pro is a comprehensive and intuitive application designed to make it simple and straightforward to convert fonts using a Mac without the need of in-depth knowledge about the intricacies of glyph designing and editing.
