If you are using the transcribed and the translation project for subtitling purpose,  we will also create a timeline (timestamp) that will insure the target and source language will much.

Multilingual Desk Top Published: One of the top secrete for Amharic Desk Top Publishing is having a right translation and a right set of fonts. Since most Amharic word-processing software and fonts do not have a standard and they are not compatible each other, getting a right font is crucial. Most Amharic fonts are working fine  in Microsoft Word, but they will change their behaviors when they are imported to some professional graphics software like Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop or  Quark Express. If you have an Amharic document which is translated by another translator (in MS Word) and you want to give this document for your in-house DTP expert, there will have a high chance of  creating errors. This is because some Amharic fonts will break when they are imported to another graphics software. If you deliver the final DTP with out a native Amharic speaker proofreading, your are taking a high chance. Our advice is don't take chance, let us take your project and we will make sure you have an understandable document.

UNICODE WEB SITE DESIGN: If you are planning to localize a web site we think we have the tool. Our Amharic Unicode website localization team is ready to help. We have one of the first Amharic Localization team. We use Unicode Amharic fonts and Unicode Amharic  converter. If you have an none-Unicode Amharic translated document we can convert this document to UNICODE. By converting you web site to UNICODE Amharic you will eliminate the time to convert the document to PDF or graphics format.  Also the downside having a graphics document in your site is, it takes too much time to download.
