We are all fascinated by Adobe Illustrator’s capabilities. Adobe illustrator can pretty much achieve any design. Whether if it is a banner, a Logo, posters or a print advertisements. But what about Typing a Foreign language, that’s the point we usually get stuck; Specially when We need to type Arabic. After a long web search to find an effective way to implement a foreign language i found many non impressive ways to type Arabic. After a lot of hit and trial i found an easy way to type Arabic (or any script related to arabic like persian, urdu ) in illustrator.
Here is a quick and simple way to write Arabic or Urdu. This is not a professional way of doing it but heck it gets the work done and impressively it is in a vector form.
Firstly, you will require following things.
1. Adobe Illustrator any version (mine version CS5).
2. MS Word
3. Few Arabic fonts which can be found on the following link: http://cooltext.com
- after converting the text copy it and try pasting the text in illustrator an i hope it works! unfortunately it should not and it will show text items separately or the may some time be in boxed format to but don’t worry try selecting the font name to the one installed. But, we need to correct it (◕‿◕)
