Cortext has years of experience with most major DTP software and can supply you with the right format for your Japanese publishing project.


An Adobe Acrobat PDF file of your Japanese pages, allows you and your printer to view and print your project without requiring any Japanese fonts on your system. This is the most common format used.

You can download the free Adobe PDF Reader here.


EPS files, like PDF, are useful because you will not need Japanese fonts installed on your system to view your Japanese pages. The EPS format is also useful because you can work with the Japanese text in IllustratorPhotoshopQuarkXpressInDesign and most other DTP and graphics software.

Each EPS file is a single page, so for long publications it is best to use the PDF format.

Word, Excel and Powerpoint

Microsoft Office 2000 allows users to read and write Japanese without needing a Japanese version of Windows.
