From Berlin, Germany, I work as a freelance consultant in multilingual typography and font technology. Since 1997, I have been working with FontLab and other font software. I provide training in FontLab applications and develop custom scripting solutions for FontLab Studio using the Python language. I consult with worldwide clients in areas of font technology, helping them to choose among font formats and software applications that match their requirements in multilingual text processing and document publication. I have been helping font foundries and individual type designers to create OpenType versions of their fonts and design font production workflows.
I have been consulting the design of Latin diacritic characters and Cyrillic characters for a number of font vendors, and am performing such extensions myself. I have been advising software manufacturers in multilingual text processing and font technology issues, working actively with their developers and their quality assurance departments. I have a firm knowledge in questions of font licensing, copyright and intellectual property rights.
