EFF Type1 Translator
Now version 4.25 (July 2011)
What is EFF Type1 Translator?
EFF PostScript Type1 Translator, or !effT1T is the new translator of Windows and Mac PostScript fonts to Acorn format. eff T1T is the latest addition to our font tools series which includes already the best selling EFF TrueTypeTranslator and EFF FontTable.
PostScript is the second most common font format in the world and since it works on similar principles as the Risc OS format, the fonts translated with !effT1T should be of noticeably better quality than those converted from TrueType.
- Instant PC and Mac PostScript Type1 font convertor
- Instant Type1 font editable sample viewer
- Instant Type1 font table creator
- Full Type1 font info displayer
- Choice of encoding including many foreign alphabets
- Choice of settings
- On-line comprehensive manual
- Additional support from interactive !Help
Advantages over Acorn‘s own Type1toFont include:
- The translated font is fully editable in the font editor, whereas Type1toFont converts fonts into format incompatible with FontEd
- All PostScript font features are cared for, including the flex feature, so that the shapes of the letters remain the same
- Font tables and samples can be viewed before translation
