Typesetting and Desktop Publishing Service in Kurdish

Hero Curve Element

Working together with our experienced and qualified translators, voiceover artists, interpreters, audiovisual translators, transcribers and subtitlers, we offer a wide range of language services.

Available in over 200 languages within the UK and beyond, our linguists can get you heard in any language of your choice. While we do not offer a walk-in service, we are only one phone call away from discussing your language requirements.

Your documents typeset by experts and checked by Kurdish linguists

If we are provided with the source text in a standard, fully editable format such as Word or Excel and asked to produce a translation in any language, then this is straightforward.

If however the translation needs to fit within a layout that combines elements such as text, numerical data, photographs, illustrations, other graphics and special formatting, then you may need the help of one of our typesetters.

Just let us know how we can help you.

What information would we need from you?

  1. What language is your source document?
  2. What is the subject matter?
  3. As translated texts don’t always take-up the same amount of room, have you taken this into account with the design of your document so that it will accommodate versions in different languages such as Kurdish?
  4. Remember some languages read from right to left.  Will your design allow for right to left reading languages?
  5. What software package have you used to design the original?  Are you able to send us the source files, including any pictures or graphics?
  6. How many words is your source document?
  7. How many pages is your typeset version?
  8. Would you require the translated typeset version to be proofread by a native speaker after the typesetting stage?

Which languages read from right to left?

The main languages are:

  • Arabic
  • Aramaic
  • Azeri
  • Dhivehi/Maldivian
  • Hebrew
  • Kurdish (Sorani)
  • Persian/Farsi
  • Urdu

What will our Kurdish proofreaders consider?

Our proofreaders will carefully check the formatting of a document to ensure that sentences don’t appear twice, a word has not been cut off inappropriately, headings are in bold if they should be, titles to illustrations have not been omitted.  This is especially important post desktop publishing or typesetting.

How is the cost for Kurdish typesetting calculated?

  • The cost depends on the number of pages
  • The cost depends on the complexity of the layout

While you’re here… some quite interesting facts about the Kurdish language.

The Kurdish language is related to Persian (or Farsi), the language spoken in Iran. Kurdish, like Persian, has also borrowed many words from the Arabic language. Until 1991, it was illegal to speak Kurdish in Turkey except at home. The skillful use of language is highly valued by Kurds. Cleverness and a command of poetry are considered important skills. Population estimates for the Kurds range from 5 million to 22 million. More Kurds live in Turkey than anywhere else. They are the second-largest ethnic group in Turkey, Iraq, and Syria. They are the third-largest group (after Azerbaijanis) in Iran. Kurds also live in Lebanon, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Germany, and other places across Europe, the United States, Canada, and Australia. Although they live among them, Kurds are ethnically unrelated to Turks, Arabs, and Iranians.

Where is Kurdish most widely spoken?

Iraq (Kurdistan Region) and Rojava. Kurdish is also a recognised minority language in Armenia.
