Professional Pashto typesetting services

Over 20 years experience providing Pashto typesetting services, we produce Pashto brochures, Pashto manuals and Pashto packaging, providing print-ready PDFs.

Adelphi is a Pashto typesetting company that has worked with hundreds of advertising and design agencies and their clients break into new markets and adapt their message into Pashto. 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 Pashto 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.


As a truly professional Pashto typesetting company, we don’t subcontract your work, our highly experienced staff produces all our typesetting in-house. We also proofread and DTP QA the work before submitting a PDF proof for approval, keeping you in control at all stages.

Pashto typesetting requires flipping the document so it reads right to left, also so it can be read with the correct pagination in place.

We produce all kinds of Pashto print materials including corporate brochures, packaging, business cards, posters and manuals.

Graphics localization

We can also localize 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.

Data required

We need the English original data for us to adapt into Pashto, 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 Pashto 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.

Book localization

  1. Pashto is generally the same length or even shorter than English. Pashto does not have an uppercase so if you’re using uppercase in English then we have to use something else such as bold.
  2. Stylized text can be central to your design, but sometimes simple really is best. Mixing bold, italics and colours in the same paragraph may not translate into your target language and will slow down the typesetting process. By avoiding these you can keep your costs down and speed up delivery.
  3. Drop caps and uppercase for emphasis can look great in English, but some languages don’t use them. This is where Adelphi’s typesetting experience can help you.
  4. If you want to place text over an image, try to add it to 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.
