Burmese typography problems solved

Producing a document in Burmese can present challenges unfamiliar to those more used to European languages. Burmese text must be composed correctly, with line breaks only where appropriate. All of our Burmese typesetting is carried out in-house, meaning we can respond quickly to amendments or queries.

This in-house knowledge also allows us to advise you during your design process of any potential pitfalls in Burmese. We have all the technical Burmese typesetting expertise you need: an in-depth understanding of the Burmese writing system, Burmese typographical conventions, typefaces and fonts, and an authoritative knowledge of how to typeset Burmese using InDesign, Illustrator and more.

We can also provide a Burmese translation service. However, if you are supplying the Burmese text yourself, care must be taken on the font used by the translator. For instance, one popular Burmese font, Zawgyi, is not Unicode-compliant. We recommend contacting us at the earliest stage so we can advise on the optimal workflow and options.

A wide portfolio of Burmese typesetting

WorldAccent works on a wide range of Burmese projects. We are happy to provide samples of our Burmese typesetting when discussing your needs – client confidentially prevents us posting them on the web. Common tasks might include typesetting Burmese adverts, business newsletters or community information.

Burmese, Myanmarese or Myanmar language?

Burmese is the official language of Burma, a country also known as Myanmar or more formally the Republic of the Union of Myanmar. In English, the language itself is sometimes called Myanmar, Myanmarese or even Myanmese.

The Constitution of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar officially cites the English name of the language as the Myanmar language. However most English speakers continue to refer to the language as Burmese.

It is written in the Burmese script which consists of circular and semi-circular letters.

Delivering Burmese in a format to suit you

Your typeset Burmese document will be supplied back to you in an easy to use format, such as high resolution PDF or outlined text. Let us worry about composition and appropriate fonts to provide files you can use with confidence. Whether you need one word or a whole brochure, you can be confident of top quality Burmese typesetting delivered quickly in a manner to suit your workflow.

Naturally, translation of your multimedia project or website is available too – whether you need a few lines of Burmese or to localise your whole site. Get in touch to discuss the options for translating your site into Burmese.

Some Burmese typesetting facts:

  • The Burmese script is most likely a derivative of the ancient Brahmi script, possibly via the Mon or Pyu scripts
  • Burmese does not use spaces between words, although text often contains spaces between clauses for improved readability
