What Is Lorem Ipsum?

Have you made a template or made use of a free template website? Do you wish to have feedback on it? At the same time, you don’t want the visitors reviewing your site to get distracted by what the text says? Taking help from Lorem Ipsum can help.

What Is It?


A placeholder text in graphic design and publishing commonly used for demonstrating a visual document or a typeface is called Lorem Ipsum. However, it does not rely on meaningful content.

Where To Use It?


Wondering why one uses this type of meaningless content? Well, people may use it prior to the availability of the final copy. Aside from that, it is also used for replacing copy temporarily in a process named Greeking. Doing so enables designers to take into consideration the form without a meaningful text influencing the design.

In other words, the main reason for using this term is to keep people from paying attention to the actual text.

Where Did It Come From?       


Lorem Ipsum has its roots in a real Latin work. Its origin is “De Finibus bonorum et Malorum,” meaning ‘on the ends of good and evil,’ which is Cicero’s 45 BC work, which is a look at ethics. The sections from which Lorem Ipsum text come from our 1.10.32 and 1.10.33.


Nevertheless, the common text of Lorem Ipsum we use in the present times is not proper Latin. In comparison to Cicero’s work, our text of lorem ipsum is totally gibberish. What makes it far from its initial form is the addition, removal, and changing of words.
