Convert Any Font with TransType Pro

Our universal font converter allows you to convert practically any font into any other format on Mac and PC. TransType converts fonts between major font formats: OpenType, PostScript Type 1, TrueType, Multiple Master.


  • Precision: accuracy to within a quarter of a font unit
  • Efficiency: no extra unnecessary points added to curves
  • Edit font names: change the name of your converted font
  • Designate styles: flag your converted font as bold or italic
  • Batch processing: convert many fonts at once.
  • Automatic OpenType: If your Type 1 font contains the appropriate glyphs TRPro will automatically generate the correct OpenType features for them when it converts to OpenType.
  • Python scripting: v2.4 to handle those complex conversion problems

TransType can convert fonts between Mac and Windows, and between all major font formats: PostScript, TrueType and OpenType. TransType supports batch conversion so users can convert hundreds of fonts at a time, even directly from Stuffit (.sit) archives. With TransType Pro, you can convert your fonts into the new universal OpenType format with Unicode encoding to make them compatible with the newest versions of Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft Office and Apple iWork. TransType Pro even automatically adds some OpenType typographic features such as ligatures or fractions!
TransType addresses common font problems. Font conversion may help repair corrupt fonts that are rejected by the system or cause problems in printing. Owners of Multiple Master fonts can use TransType to convert them into normal OpenType, Type 1 or TrueType fonts and use them in any application. Font designers who use TypeTool, ScanFont or other font editors can use TransType Pro to create professional-quality OpenType fonts. The Pro edition includes Python scripting support.
