An expert understanding of Japanese typesetting

Our studio have extensive experience of the unique issues raised by Japanese typesetting, and will ensure your project avoids the associated pitfalls. Even though most software these days will display individual Japanese characters correctly, that does not by itself ensure acceptable Japanese typesetting. There are a number of Japanese-specific issues that need to be supported by the software, such as mojikumi (inter-character spacing) and kinsoku (correct line breaks), and even then it is likely that manual intervention will be required. Rest assured that we have the tools and the know-how to provide you with Japanese typesetting that is typographically correct. With our expertise and range of fonts, we will typeset your documents in Japanese in a way that ensures your style is conveyed to your target audience and that the spirit of the original design is maintained.

From advising on the language implications of your initial designs through to producing print-ready PDFs, our studio are experts in producing language-appropriate, elegant Japanese layouts.

Equipped to deliver professional Japanese DTP

We have all the technical Japanese typesetting knowledge you would expect, from an in-depth understanding of Japanese fonts to an authoritative knowledge of Quark Xpress, InDesign, Illustrator, Word, Photoshop, Excel, Powerpoint, Acrobat and more.

We will supply your typeset Japanese document back to you in an easy to use format, such as high resolution PDF or outlined text. We can also supply Japanese ePubs if required.

Whether you need a single word, a brochure or an entire book in Japanese, we will make the process painless and make sure you convey your intended message to a Japanese audience.

Two Japanese typesetting points of interest

  • The Japanese writing system uses a mixture of three main scripts: kanji, hiragana and katakana. Roman characters are also used in some instances.
  • Japanese can be written horizontally, from left to right, or vertically, from right to left.
