Fontlab Ltd. Announces Premium Online Font Converter(June 05, 2012)
Port Angeles, WA (PRWEB) June 05, 2012
TransType Pro has been the professional's choice of font converter ever since its first release in 1999. Its combination of features, high conversion fidelity and extensive format library keeps it on the desktop of everyone who regularly works with fonts. But at US$179 the price is kind of steep for those who only occasionally need a font conversion fix.
Now comes Roozz (http://www.roozz.com) with a great idea: put TransType Pro online and just charge by the day. Then infrequent users can pay only a fraction of the usual cost yet get all the power they need for virtually any font conversion task.This gives casual typographers a sophisticated new tool without busting the budget.
Sometimes trying to convert fonts can be a challenge. Bad code, obscure formats, changing encodings, and conflicting font names can all derail the process. TransType Pro handles these problems with ease. And the online version does everything the desktop version does - all the way from simple OTF to TTF conversions up to multiple master instances, batch processing and Python macros. Nothing else on or off the web even comes close to this kind of conversion power.
But there's nothing complicated about using TransType/Roozz. Just browse to http://www.fontlab.com/roozz/transtype-pro; download and install the Roozz plugin; add US$9.99 to the account; and fire up TRPro. The interface looks and works just like the desktop version so if a user's conversion needs increase to the point where the desktop version becomes more economical then there's no new learning curve.
This version of the TransType/Roozz font converter service works only on Windows OSs, because Roozz doesn't yet have a plugin for Mac OS. But they're working on it and by next year Fontlab hopes to have an online version of TransTypePro/Mac up and running also.
The introductory price for the TransType/Roozz service is US$9.99 for 24 hours of unlimited use. Customers can convert as many fonts as they want as many times as they want during that period of time. For details please visit the TransType/Roozz web page at http://www.fontlab.com/use-online/
