From characters to words
Hopefully someone can help me out here. We bought the book 'The Typographic Matchmaking' so that's how we ended up here.
We are working with an Arabic translater and a designer. We are translating currently on a Apple Mac. We're using the Keyboard Viewer to tyoe the translation [System Preferences, International, Input menu] but we can not 'glue' the separate characters together to words. There must be a trick/something we overlook currently. Who can help us out?
The questions are:
- What software on a Mac do you recommend for typing the Arabic translation?
- What input method do you suggest?
- How do we 'glue' together the separate characters [perhaps with a different input method the 'glueing' is not necessary anymore]?
Thanks in advance for your help!
