If you are a web or a mobile application developer then you might have come across situations where you land on an interesting font online which you want to use in your tool, but the only thing that’s coming between you and the font is its format.
Most of the free fonts available online are in .TTF format (Raw TrueType file) suited for Windows and Linux OS kind. Now if you want to use the same font in the tool you developed, you might want to convert it to EOT, WOF or SVG format.
So if you are also looking for a free-and-easy way to convert your fonts from one known format to another, Online Font Converter will definitely prove to be a helping hand.
Online Font Converter, as the name speaks, is an online tool to convert fonts from one format to another. The service is free and easy to use making the conversion of fonts from one format to another a breeze. The Online Font Converter converts fonts to/from: .pdf .dfont .eot .otf .pfb .tfm .pfm .suit .svg .ttf .pfa .bin .pt3 .ps .t42 .cff .afm .ttc & .woff formats.
To start converting fonts, open the Online Font Converter home page to find the new registration panel. Though you may skip the registration and carry on with the conversion process, it’s always advisable to register for the service to get updates on the tool development and your file processing status.
For the time being, I will skip the registration process and continue to the online converter. The service will ask you to agree to their terms and condition before you continue any further.
Once you are on the converter page the tool will ask you to upload the font file you want to convert. If like me, you too are using the service as an unregistered user then you should submit your email to get the update on the conversion process.
After your upload is successful you will be asked to select the type of font format you want to convert the particular font to. You may choose more than one format at a time and queue the process. Once the conversion is successful the download link of the respective font type will be displayed. If you did provide an email address, you will get an email alert for the same.
Now, download the required font file and use the it wherever you like.
If you have created an account at Online Font Converter, the tool will keep a record of all your converted fonts in the My Fonts section which can be downloaded and used whenever required.
Online Font Converter does what it claims at its very best. The tool is free to use without any limitation of any kind and comes with a sleek and easy interface to get the work done. Overall, if you are looking for a free font converter then Online Font Converter would be my first recommendation.
