NITARTHA-SAMBHOTA CONVERTER FOR THE MAC
pleased to announce the Nitartha-Sambhota Converter for the Mac. This package makes available to Mac users the high-quality Nitartha-Sambhota Dedris Tibetan fonts in Nitartha-Sambhota 2.0. Combined with the N-S
Converter for the Mac, Mac users can work with Nitartha-Sambhota created documents on their Macs. Mac users can also create Tibetan documents by writing them in Wylie or Asian Classics transliteration and converting
them to Tibetan language documents using the Dedris typeface.
N-S Converter for the Mac converts text files
containing Wylie or Asian Classics transliteration to Rich Text Files containing Tibetan script using the new Nitartha-Sambhota version 2.0 Tibetan fonts. Rich Text files produced by N-S Converter for the
Mac can be read by Microsoft Word and can then be formatted and printed. By using tools such as Adobe Acrobat Writer, documents containing Tibetan text can be produced for emailing or posting on the web.
Documents containing the new Tibetan fonts are easily transportable between the Mac and PC. No additional conversion or special procedures are necessary. Also, documents produced using Nitartha-Sambhota 2.0 on the PC
can be transported to the Mac and printed there.
Note that this is a conversion-only solution; we do not not provide a keyboard word processing system for the Mac at this time. For further information about
our development plans for the Nitartha-Sambhota word processing system for the Mac keyboard, click here.
