Many graphics designers or artists need to use a lot of fonts at work, and need to convert between different font formats. To do this, you can use TransType. Especially users of Adobe products will find it’s very necessary. Because Adobe has already started ending support for its PostScript Type 1 fonts, and will disable support for authoring with Type 1 fonts in January 2023

TransType is a professional, efficient universal fonts management and formats conversion tool for Windows and Mac Platforms, designed to help users convert from one font format to another for use on different systems or applications. In addition to converting, it can also colorize, repair, rename fonts, group, organize font families, and add effects. It supports almost any font format, such as PostScript, TrueType, Multiple Master, OpenType and @font-face Web font standards, supports merging font families, collaborative processing with Office, iWork, and batch conversion with one click.

In short, for those who like the creative process of designing fonts and want to make or convert any legacy fonts into modern OpenType and Web fonts (WOFF & EOT), but don’t want to use typographical techniques for font code or type design, TransType is the perfect companion for their font editors.
