Lorem Ipsum definition

Lorem Ipsum is a pseudo-Latin text – a text that looks like latin, but is actually not genuine, correct or comprehensible Latin at all. It is mostly used in web design, typography, layout and printing to help to outline the visual elements of the final product. Another word for Lorem Ipsum is also placeholder (filler) text.

If your project does not have any real text available yet for the filling in of content space, we will use Lorem Ipsum in order to fill the various web pages with text. This offers both the designers and the client the possibility to see a complete design concept before having the content ready that will eventually fill it in.

Underneath is an example of Lorem Ipsum text:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, enim tritani definitiones at qui. Dolorum vivendum facilisis nam in, lobortis voluptatibus duo ut. Tollit dolorum facilis qui cu, sea deleniti torquatos dissentiunt at, sea id delenit facilis definitiones. In sed possit bonorum. In pri nobis iudico docendi, no postea tacimates per. Nec eu alterum posidonium, cu unum referrentur cum, nec purto veniam verterem an.

Another common use of Lorem Ipsum is as a text-generator in browsers. In this case, Lorem Ipsum is used for testing: when you have to test several cases and/or forms, you can fill them in with automatically generated Lorem Ipsum paragraphs so you do not have to type all the time in order to fill every space in the form.
