Professional Nepali typesetting services

Adelphi has over 20 years experience providing Nepali typesetting services, localising your brochures, manuals and packaging etc into Nepali ready to print.

Adelphi are a Nepali typesetting company that has worked with hundreds of advertising and design agencies and their clients break into new markets and adapt their message into Nepali. (Nepali is also called Bangla). As well as working for translation agencies worldwide, Adelphi has been a trusted supplier for companies such as Disney, Jaguar Land Rover, the Royal Armouries, HSBC, Barclays bank, Vidal Sassoon, the Overseas Development Institute and Amnesty International.

All of our Nepali typesetting is produced in-house and we never farm out any of our typesetting work to external suppliers, keeping confidentiality and quality control to the maximum.

Nepali uses the same script as Hindi and historically, typesetting Indian languages has been difficult due to the technical problems of dealing with non-standard Indian fonts. Indian fonts have often been produced with no reference to other fonts for the same script. What this means in practise is that, when using a standard English keyboard, one font may have a character on the ‘G’ key, while another font, for the same script, may have the same character on the ‘L’ key. So when typesetting Indian languages it simply is not possible to switch between fonts, as you can in English, as identical Indian characters may be mapped to different positions on the keyboard. These problems are also there for other Indian languages such as Hindi, Bengali etc.

Graphics localisation

We can also localise any graphics in the document using Photoshop or Illustrator, depending on the image we could require the original layered data with live text, not outlined text. We have the latest Adobe CC applications.

Nepali line spacing

Nepali has much taller characters than Latin text so these scripts often require more vertical space between lines.

Data required

We need the English original data for us to adapt into Nepali using InDesign, QuarkXPress and other professional typesetting software, this is usually supplied by the design agency as a “collect or package” which includes all images, fonts and links (images) to the document. Without these we cannot create a print ready PDF as the deliverable.

Deliverable data

We can supply the finished Nepali document as a print ready PDF set to your specifications, if required we can also outline the text in InDesign so you can print from the InDesign file itself.

  1. Many languages will expand once translated from English, so we’d recommend you leave some space for this. If in doubt, just give us a call and we’ll be happy to help.
  2. Your style can be central to your project, but sometimes simple really is best. Bold, italics, and even colours in the same paragraph can sometimes just not translate into your chosen language. By avoiding this you can also keep your costs down and speed up delivery.
  3. Drop caps and uppercase for emphasis can look great in English, but some languages like Nepali don’t use them. This is where our company’s typesetting experience can help you.
  4. If you want to place text over an image, try to add it within the document rather than in the image itself. That way we can edit exactly what you need changing.
  5. As an experienced typesetting agency, we know our fonts and some languages have more restrictions than English. Our staff can show you which fonts work in whichever language you desire, right down to the different weights and condensed versions.
